    Here is the link to my post a couple of weeks ago:

    It's been a while, I've been giving her vitamin B, vitamin E, and making sure her feet stay nice and clean. I also gave her some poly-vi-sol, although I don't know if it did any good...

    Anyway, she HAS gotten a little better. She no longer lays around on her side. She walks and digs and rolls in the dirt with the other girls, she just prefers to stay in one spot other than roaming around a lot. She does not seem to be in any pain, and she hasn't lost any weight or her appetite. She sleeps on the roost at night (I made a lower, wider one for her) so overall, she's doing just fine.

    If it was Mareks, would she have begun to deteriorate by now? I refuse to cull her unless I find out that there is something seriously wrong with her, OR she exhibits really bad symptoms. Ideas, anyone?
