Help ! Going in circles, stroke? marek's or botulism? A week ago my chicken was a little slow however, I did not notice any signs of illness. Because she did not want to sit on the roost and stayed on the ground not coming out the coop I took her into my house. Not long after, I noticed she could hardly walk, fell many times, and her left wing drooped at times. However, with vitamines, e, yogurt , egg yolk and her laying pellets she improved. gained weight and always liked her fav. snacks. All seemed to go just fine vet prescribed sulphur dropps for 7 days suspected could be cocci, she had no more diareah and nice round dropping. All looked fine, I would let her out in the sun for 10 minutes. A scary thing happened tonight.It looked like an epileptic attack. Her legs sliding to each side and no control over her body, Also, she sits up too straight. or goes with her belly over the ground. I had her on papertowels and let her walk on the carpet to see if that makes a difference, It looks like something in her brain is not right or something inside is bothering her. However, no grey eyes, no bloody poop. can chickens get a stroke? She is not always paralized it comes and goes. strange behavior not sure where to go from here. anybody any idea? what is the prognosis and if there is little hope, do I have to be prepared to euthanise her? Please help. thanks a lot.
