    Welcome to BYC!

    Separate her from the flock in a dog kennel with food and water(Vitamins in the water).You can offer eggs and tuna often.If she doesn't drink you should give her water through a 3cc syringe or a eye dropper just make sure she is warm and calm.At this point its hard to tell whats wrong,many diseases can cause weakness in the legs.Keep us updated
