In the last few days my lovely lavender white top polish hen started to get off her roost and sleep on the ground. I tried to get her to eat and drink, but she only layed there. I isolated her and check her droppings, eyes, notrils, legs, feathers, crop and mouth. Every thing seemed normal. After a few days of this; I just could not stand it. I was very concerned of Markel's desease, but the eyes were normal. I would sure like some opinions on this. I just felt that she would not recover and if she did, she would carry a disease that would come back and bite me in the ass. God, I hate killing animals (other than coons, possums, armidillos and dogs that kill my chickens).
