    My Muscovey all of a sudden cant walk......she doesnt seem to be in any kind of pain, there are no visable injuries. No swollen legs or anything. I am confused and unsure what to do. I dont believe there is anything toxic around that she got into so it is very unclear to me what could be wrong. Any help and I would be grateful .....also can ducks get meraks?
    Just would like to add her legs stick out behind her and when u hold her , her legs dont do the swim motion. I put her in water and her legs still just stick behind her she doesnt paddle at all.

    I have a chicken with pretty much same symptoms for 2 days now. I don't think she is eating much and I saw her pass a watery poop yesterday. I don't know what is wrong with her but I'll keepyou updated with any info I can get....
