    Hello,I have a friend a gave some orpingtons to about month and half ago .about three days ago he found one of the hens very larthargic and one eye closed and about the same time he had a company fertilize his lawn which the sprayed right beside the chicken run.the rest are just fine and mine are fine.could it be she was poisoned or could it be something much worse like marek's.the hen is a blue orpington about 2years of age I hatched her myself and she always has been in good health.but she wasn't vaccinated for mereks as a chick.i went and looked at her she does look like she is about to die ,he took her out an quarantined her but I'm not sure what to tell him.
