I have a 2 mos old silver Hamburg pullet who, until Monday night, appeared to be healthy.
She suddenly (somewhere between the hours of 8am-4pm) on Monday seemed to lose strength in her legs. The right seems to be more impacted, however, she does have control of both legs (no complete paralysis). She sits on her hocks and tries to stand, but she just falls over.
She has a good appetite, drinks well, and her poop is totally normal. I will even set her in the grass for a little and she munches it all down with no hesitation. She is mentally with it and has not ever seemed fuzzy through it all. She does not appear to be getting worse, but I have been supplementing her with electrolytes and vitamins.
No change in feed prior. They free range in the evenings when we get home.
It has been raining here quite a bit, but I try to keep them dry. However, when I went to change out their straw (bc it has been chilly at night), I found a solid sheet of white mold under the dry hay (our ground is so wet that it apparently seeping up through).
Has anyone seen or heard this before?
