Is there a natural cure for Merrick's Disease?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

One of my chicks has Merrick's Disease, and although I am not looking for ways to cure that chick, I would like to know if anyone has any insight on natural ways to cure or prevent it?

 

BTW These chicks were not given the Merrick's shots, but in the past we have lost 80% of vaccinated chicks.

 

Thanks!

Was you chick diagnosed by a vet, blood test etc.?

There is a lot of information regarding Marek's. From what little I have read, there is no cure, just management of symptoms. Here's a few article to get you started on your research.
