I have a 10 week old bantam frizzle cochen pullet who yesterday was fine as can be. I held her and petted her the way she liked. This morning I found her in a little dirt nest. Her eyes were closed and she was very still. She was laying in her own feces (which looked normal) One leg was pulled up in front of her the other leg was stretched out behind her, both are stiff and immobile. I thought she was dead until one of the other juveniles stepped on her to get to me. They she openned her eyes and picked up her head. I immediately separated her and got her to drink some water. Unfortunately, I am flying blind here as my copy of the Chicken Health Handbook is MIA and I know absolutely nothing beyond what I learn from books and this forum. I'm concerned that this might be Marek's but there is no indication other than the legs that it could be mareks. Her crop is empty. Her pelvic feels boney. Legs stiff and pointed in opposite directions. She is still as can be, but will open her eyes and peep at me a little. 1. Any thoughts on it being Mareks? 2. Any other suggested possible diagnosis? ( I know its hard to do, I'm just looking for other potential things to research) 3. Other than isolate and provide electrolytes, any suggestions as to how I could treat her. 3. Is there anything I can do to protect the rest of the birds whe was housed with. 4. Are Frizzle Cochin's more susceptible to any diseases that others may not be? She was housed with a 10 week old bantam japanese buff black tail (roo), (4) 8 week old buff minorca and (2) 8 week old wyandottes. I have a place that does the autopsy free for backyard flock owners. I'm just hoping it doesn't come to that. Here is a picture of her.
