As I've said in previous posts we've had really bad luck with this batch of chickens. We started out with 24 eggs and now have 4 pullets and 2 roosters left.. 1 was a spraddle chick (we didn't know about treatment so it's gone) At least 2 have died suddenly with no prior symptoms 1 started out with droopy wings and puffing, see my first "sick post" This one we thought was a roo then after the wings started drooping the comb was paler and didn't grow so we thought maybe a pullet. But I've read somewhere that pale comb is also a symptom of Mareks? 1 recently developed a limp that seemed to be a sprain:prior post here. She was put in confinement with a heating lamp and given mild pain medication but the condition deteriorated. Today she was lying lethargic partly on her side with her neck twisted around so we put her out of her misery. Too bad, she was the finest of the pullets I am trying to figure out how to get a necropsy in my country, but what do YOU think? Can this have been Mareks or have we just had REALLY bad luck?? All deaths have been at different ages and stages, no 2 at the same time.
