    Hi. My name is Dawn and I have a 10 wk old hen who is suspected of having Mareks. She is hand raised and a very sweet bird. i feel sad that she has to spend her days away from the rest of the flock. i am wondering if there might be someone on this forum who is nursing a bird with mareks and might like another bird to care for. She needs companionship and she would provide great company. I am in Fort Collins and would bring her to you. Thanks.

    You should suck it up and cull her, or have someone do it for you. Marek's is not something to be trifled with.
