I hate to be a debbie downer but ....
I had a beautiful year old bantam hen that hurt her leg, it was JUST that leg and she could stand up fine on the other one (no signs of Mareks).
However after being crated for 2-3 weeks to let her hurt leg heal the stress must have gotten to her, she lost the ability to stand and died in 2-3 days from Marek's like symptoms. I do think it started as an injury but she became stressed/depressed due to the confinement and then Mareks took hold.
OMG! You are a Debbie downer this morning. Go have a few cups of coffee and come back as Sonya
Lalaland, you;'re right , anything is better than fighting "the ghost".
I had a BR that was in a sling for 6 weeks and healed. I had JG that had one and I think the stress caused her to go down hill. That one was 2 years old and a week later I had 10 chicks get paralysis one by one. That JG had also lost her depth perception , so , Marek's may have been the reason.
