    Hello, both of my chickens don't walk anymore, I have to pick them up and put them outside. It's like their legs have given way and are floppy. They also only rarely eat, and I think one of them has gone blind. Does anyone know what it may be? One chicken got the condition first and now the other has it too. help!
  2. Without actually seeing the bird, I would research Mareks if I were you. Mareks sometimes manifests itself as paralysis in the legs.
