We have a...I think four year old, leghorn hen that walks and stands very strange...she just started walking/standing this way not long ago...

it's like she's standing/walking straight up....kind of like a runner duck....like her butt almost drags the ground....does anyone have any idea what it could be??

She looks healthy (other than this) she eats/drinks and walks around....she does look unconfortable standing straight up....any one?

It's kind of like nuts-and-bolts, if the rider's nuts the horse bolts.

when she sits, it's like on her butt, straight up....unlike normally they look like they're sort of brooding....

anyone?

She's just getting old. Four yrs is normal for a chicken to have leg problems. As long as she is still having a good life I wouldn't worry too much.
