2 days ago I took in a hen from a friend who only had her left. A raccoon attack killed all of the rest and she was living alone. She as all of the symptoms of MS (Pale, limping, lump on joint). This must have been caused by the stress of the attack. When we brought her home we put her in a separate cage in the garage just to rid her of bacteria. We just found out about the disease and I am worried terribly. None of my flock has MS that I know of, and I read that it can spread fast! Can this new bird effect my flock! Can it be treated?? It hurts me terribly that I would have to give her back to her miserable lonely life. Please answer quickly. Thank you everyone.
