    In the begging I thought my hen had a broken leg, she was walking on one but the other one wasn't working so she would have sit down on her elbows when she ate, this has been going on for about 3 weeks now, shes around 26 to 28 wks old, she eats and drinks but now doesn't seem to have hardly any control of her feet most of the time they seem to curl in, I've been doing range of motion with her and have had her in the house for a week now, I'm beginning to wonder if its neralogical, maybe the rooster pecked her in the head or the other hens, i have 8 more like her and 13 black austrolorp that are all fine, I am going to try and post a video if i can figure out how, I hope some one has an answer, my husband says I need to just put her down, she has some strength in her legs when I try to move them so I'm just at my wits end, can't really afford a vet.

    I hope you can get to the video from here.
