Hi all hoping someone out there has some ideas on what the cause on solution are for this one. I have a 28 week old silkie pullet who a couple days ago I noticed acting out of sorts. It is the middle of winter here in Ontario Canada but every time I saw her she was outside laying down, then I realized she hadn't moved much and yesterday I found her on her side with her coop-mate standing on her. A few quick searches and a quick physical exam later and I am no further on an answer. Marek's was a first thought but the eyes are clear and she is alert (not to fond of a flashlight in her eyes), no swollen follicles either. I thought maybe egg-binding or some related disorder, an abdominal and cloacal exam reveal nothing lodged, or obstructions. Today she was quarantined in the only cage I had available and separated from here rambunctious coop-mate. Last I saw her right leg is strong enough to pull her up and she generally keeps that under her as she lays there, her left however, is splayed in front and occasionally she tries to lift it off the ground as she adjusts herself. The leg can move although reluctantly and with no force, I observed, as I examined for any breaks or dislocations. There are no breaks, and as far as I can tell no dislocations. Sorry for the long post I just want as much detail in case I am over looking something. Any thoughts?
