she is a laying hen? And has had this for 3 days. Does not seem to be in pain when you touch the leg. Do not see any swelling. Is eating and drinking ok but less than others. Chirps quite a bit.

If you can't feel any issues .... and she is in pain ... then I am so sorry.. but I think you need to put her down.

:hugs So sorry! Hardest part of raising chickens! :hugs
