    The only way we can think she did this is by jumping off roost. She can still roost, her leg is almost backwards. Any help appreciated. Will get pics. Just saw last night.

    Ouch!! I think I would go ahead and butcher her now and get her out of pain.

    So picked her up tonight and her leg just seemed turned.... she does not seem too concerned about it either. We will keep a close eye on her. I would not leave her in pain and will put her down if we need to.

    Could she have slipped out her tendon?
