    Have a six month old layer that won't stand, eat or drink. I have been force feeding and making her drink for 5 days. No infection or injury. She holds the wing on her "hurt" side strange. Thoughts?

    I had a pullet that had a vitamin E deficiency. I used vitamin E oil capsules and made her eat it. She recovered in about a week. Not sure if that's whats going on but it could be worth a shot!

    Do you have a photo of her? It would be very helpful. How do her legs look? Symptoms like this can be a vitamin deficiency or something more serious like Mareks virus. Was she vaccinated for Mareks disease? Mareks can manifest as subble as a droopy wing or limp to as vigorous as full blown paralysis. Can you provide more information about her condition like what do her legs look km like, are her toes curled, what EXACTLY do on you mean by holding her wing strange? Is it drooping? What does her neck look like? Is it held in the normal position.be as specific as you can. What does she do on when you try to stand her up.? More information is needed
