    Got my delawares a couple of weeks ago and they are doing great except for one particular one who we saw just was laying there. We thought oh maybe she was picked on but when you put her near the water and food she eats and drinks. Her legs don't move! What do I do? What is it?

    Botulism and a very common disease Mareks both can cause paralysis in chickens, as can a few other things. [​IMG]

    Just feed and water her by hand. Either she will get better or she won't. You will know in a few days.
