    Both legs paralyzed. One tends to curl in ward and is tremnling and one of her claws is missing. The other leg is paralyzed and just slightly curled.
    Started today.
    Her head is strong, no cloudy eyes and is laying on her side.
    She can at time fumble a mere walk, but barely.
    Poop in normal
    Did see string like like worm that would fall apart

    She is seperated from flock. Not sure if this an injury or a virus.
    What could this be and how can I prevent it?
    She is a batam feather booted d' uccle {not sure.. She was given to me.}
    Patra... Thank I for your onsite.

    Welcome to BYC. It could possibly be Mareks disease, a vitamin deficiency, or an injury. How old is she? I would put poultry vitamins containing riboflavin in the water daily. A good poultry wormer is Valbazen 1/2 ml given by mouth and repeated in 10 days.
