    ...other hen dies about a month ago from labored breathing then was fine for a month and then died. Now this hen was wobbly with wings low, blood in coop, run and water dispenser....no sign of where/who came from. Now the hen with low wings cant walk and is in my laundry room in bin. She is 7 months old and never layed an egg. is she going to die? I gave her a B12 in a dropper with water mix in case it was a deficiency via beak. Plan on doing again tomorrow. im afraid of merks disease...
    somebody who knows what might be going on, please write me back.
    thanks! THis is my first winter with them

    I don't have experience with mareks......hopefully someone who does will be along shortly! [​IMG]
    Have you tried giving her electrolytes? Maybe some poly vi-sol without iron?
