In the Brooder
- Jan 24, 2015
I have a 5 week old polish chick that lays on her side most of the time. She will eat and drink but she usually takes a few steps then lays over on her side. She does this even when I take them out in the field and let them run around. The others peck and scratch and she lays down. I had a young chick earlier that exhibited these symptoms at around 2 weeks of age or so. She never got over it and I had to put her down. That was several weeks ago. What could this be? Could it be Mareks? I know they were all vaccinated for it.
