symptoms of paralysis in 6 month old French Black Copper Marans hen - Page 2

Paralysis is Mareks. Don't be alarmed it happens.  

Should not effect any other birds if you cull the bird asap. Cull the bird and drive on.

She coughed an odd cough once. It's a cough that I heard her other sister FBCM hen do twice this morning. Do they cough with Mareks?

Stretched out in front of her?

Coccidiosis can also cause paralysis.

It was stretched out to the side, but now she has begun standing up again, the leg is under her and she looks stronger than yesterday.

Ideas? Thank you
