    Greetings,

    My friend shared with me that one of her hens is walking oddly - instead of on her toes she is walking on her hocks, when my husband looked at it later he said it was walking like a penguin (like a runner duck by his description).

    The hen eats and drinks normally and is still laying eggs.

    She would like to rule out disease, any ideas?
