    I have a barred rock who is in pretty bad shape. Her eyes are completly shut and her movements are kind of seizure like.
    She cannot stand up on her own nor move around , can barely hold up her neck.

    Is this Mareks, botulism or sour crop?

    Sounds more like botulism. I gave you some info about it on your other thread. Sorry for your loss.

    I am really hoping is botulism and not Marek. Thanks for the links
