WHY DOES MY HEN TAKE HIGH STEPS?

I have one chicken who pulls her legs all the way to her body when she walks, sometimes in the house which has hay on the floor & sometimes she also does this outside in the yard on the dirt. She doesn't do this all the time. We clean the house regularly and put down fresh hay. she doesn't have any open sores on her feet that are visible to the eye. We feed them laying mash and put electrolytes in their water. they get oatmeal treats, as well as cracked corn daily.
