I'll probably be freaking out until I hear back. Lol. I'm emailing first thing Monday morning to see if they've even examined her yet.
As far as the necropsy goes, I am in Virginia - and I just turned in a rooster on Thursday. The technician told me to call for a prelim the next day - so I did. I talked to the vet on Friday about his prelim findings, which turned out to be a massive parasite infestation in his gizzard. He will email me the final results - however I didn't ask how long that would take. So, maybe you could call, and get a few answers that way.
I knew parasites were bad, but I thought I would have more warning than lethargy for less than 24 hours and then dead. What another horrible learning experience, and yes, it was my second favorite rooster that died - and not one of the mean ones that hate me
I hope you don't lose anymore - and enjoy your Easter weekend. Good luck

"Morbidity is 10-50% and mortality up to 100%" according to Poultry Site. http://www.thepoultrysite.com/diseaseinfo/90/mareks-disease/
3 and 4 wks old IMO is still a little young for symptoms to appear. Sometimes you may have birds that exhibit no symptoms but would still be carriers since they are exposed.
Hope you get your results soon so you know for sure what you are dealing with.
