My 5year old barred rock hasn't been walking since December. She takes 3-5 stumbly steps and lays/falls down. Maybe 3 months ago she started open mouth breathing on and off all day. She left the flock and became a house chicken in December, which doesn't seem to bother her- she's imprinted. We've had extensive blood work, X-rays, and 3 different avian vets look at her (one just looked at blood work and X-rays, not physically at Ethel). We've tried several rounds of meds, the last round being high dosage (I think she said 3times the typical dose), with no change. She then concluded that she believes it's mareks disease but no way to know for sure except postmortem. A few times a week, I take a few hours and do (what I think is) physical therapy with her; stretching and massaging her legs, helping her stand for about 5 minutes. I would like to do it daily, but I don't always have the time. My questions are what else can I do for her? Has anyone recovered from mareks? Any other thoughts/ideas?? This chicken has been my feather baby since day 1, I want to help her any way I can.
