She walks slower than her sisters, she rest's more.
She pushes the left leg out to get moving, once she's moving she is slow but she can get moving if need be.

I can. She is free ranging now mostly by herself, her sisters stay close and keep an eye on her.

The thing is they don't feel swollen. They are just thick. No breaks, bends or soft spots.

I can put her in with the baby chicks, they won't bother her.

It is in both legs. I think I will go down and get her, bring her up here with my chicks.

I am just totally lost here.

it kinda reminds me of the cornish crosses legs whever they got too big too fast their legs were big like that and then they gave out from under them.
i would think about switching her food and maybe like you are doing seperate her and keep and eye on her .
is she real fat ? maybe she is too heavy ?

No she is actually smaller than her sibs. Has barely any comb.

What would you recommend feeding her?
