This appears to be twisted tibia (bone called "drumstick" by
the Kentucky Fried Chicken makers)
But I would like to see the hock joint (rear view) close up
to check position of Achilles tendon. This chicken was
growing fast so legs were soft cartilage easily injured.
It is nearly impossible to find a good avian vet that will
treat this but if you can then do it. If not make the photos
of hock joint and send them to me. Will try to help but there
is NO guarantee of cure
