I have a question. I have a pullet with a paralyzed leg.I think its Mareks. She dosnt drag it but just hops. I took her away from the other three pullets she was with. If Mareks did indeed spread when shall i see syptoms in other pullets?
She has been pralyzed for a bout a week now.

Thanks for the help and advice.

If it is Marek's Disease, it's likely that your other birds got it the same time that your sick bird got it, Only a few birds will show symtoms; most are natually immune. If, by some chance, they weren't exposed at the same time the incubation period is two weeks, that's the earliest you will see symptoms. There is a treatment for Marek's Disease. I have it on my site, linked in my sig, Poultry health > supportive therapy > green treats and homeopathic remedies
