    We have a dozen baby chicks, about 2 weeks old. Yesterday, had one start showing inability to walk etc, thought it might be straddle foot, but now two others are lethargic, dont seem to have balance.

    I noticed that there were little "nodules" on the feet of the first one to get sick, so have included a picture.

    Does anyone know if this is Mareks? Really have no idea what to do, and need help.

    Thanks!
    John
