    I have a bantam chick thats 5 months old, looks healthy in every way. Eating and drinking, organic free range. In a house thats chemical free.

    Poor boy has gone off his legs. Its not marricks disease, clear eyes.
    Nor a poison. Im stumped. Any ideas

    This is my best friends bird. Nugget.

    Mareks does not always present itself in the ocular form. It could be Mareks, which typically has symptomatic paralysis of the legs. Does your bird have use of its legs at all? A picture may help as well.
