    Hi all,
    I just had to put down a 6 month old hen with Mareks. Thanks for the potential remedy od hypernicum I think we got in too late with it. in any case, I have two hens with dusty chalky beaks, combs. should i be concerned about mareks with this sign? anything else possibly happening there? They are both seemingly totally healthy aside from this beak and comb business. they are both about six months old. one is a black giant and the other a rhode island red.
    thanks
