    That sounds horrible! I never want to experience that!! I am pretty sure the hen I bought at the swap had something respiratory. I got Tylan50 and gave her 1/4 cc and it started to clear up However I returned her to her owner, as much as the mother in me wants to save animals, I let go for the sake of my flock. The new birds never ever were near my flock...we bleached everything. The other hen that was w the sick hen wasn't sick so I don't think it was something super contagious..but I wasn't about to take any risks.

    Kelly, I wasn't sure how to get to your post... but It's almost certainly Mareck's, which is a viral disease, HIGHLY contagious, and carried in their "dander" - so any feathers they shed, etc... will carry the virus for months. There is a vaccination that can be given for it, it's a sub-cut injection that needs to be given at one day of age. I'm sorry you had this also, it's horrific to watch them succumb to it. There is no "cure" and they will all die different "deaths". For their sake, just hope it's quick. Breaks your heart. They are so confused as to why their little legs no longer work, they fall over... it's horrible.
