    Hey,

    My 1 chicken keeps stretching her legs a lot, backwards and upwards. Like she does it a lot, I especially notice it when I go feed them in the morning.
    She drinks and eats normally. She also hold her feet bend on the ground sometimes, or just in a weird way lol. And I wonder if something is wrong.
    Otherwise she can walk normally.

    She is doing chicken yoga. It is how they warm up for chicken kung-fu. [​IMG]

    Seriously, I don't think there is any awry with her. Mine go through all sorts of contortions during the course of a day. I have one I think was a dancer in a past life. She stretches more than a marathon runner... except elegantly.

    Good luck.
