Chicken who can't balance, wing won't come out

So normally I'd post at BYC, but they're being frustratingly unhelpful.
So we have this production red hen who I thought was going broody. Turns out she wasn't! Her wing is very weird, I tried to open it out, one will, the other stops moving at the 2nd joint. If I move it around she begins to pant. She's very calm and sweet, and she can walk but has poor balance. 3 times she's been rescued from falling on her back (like a turtle), but she doesnt freak out. She'll kick her legs, but won't freak out.
I 'tossed' her at first because I thought it was her leg and I wanted to see her flap and run (like what they do when you toss them) and she barely flapped her good wing, and just kinda sunk like a rock
She also hopped off the couch and sunk like a rock.

Any ideas what's wrong?
