I have a Wynadotte who is approximately 23 weeks old. She is a small gal, the smallest in my flock but heavy, sturdy. When she was a chick of only a couple of days I noticed she stumbled a little bit. Marek's came to mind but she didn't get progressively worse so I didn't think about it much. (maybe I should have) Over the next 20 weeks I would notice her stumble here and there but nothing alarming. She just started to lay. Her eggs are very small. Tonight while watching her scratch around the yard with the others I noticed she was stumbling more than usual and using her wing to catch herself. She would also lay down every five minutes or so. She is eating well and drinking plenty of water. Could she have Marek's?! Could she have carried the virus since she was a 5 day old chick and now I'm just seeing the real symptoms? Does egg laying cause the symptoms to get worse? What's up with her small eggs? She is a small girl but I didn't think she would lay that small of eggs. Do chickens have other neurological diseases which could cause this stumbling? What should I do? The rest of the flock has been already exposed if Marek's is the culprit so I don't see why quarantining her would be beneficial. I was planning on calling the vet on Monday but I was really hoping for some guidance or expertise sooner. My girls are well taken care of and loved. I would like to pin point what I have here so I can make the best decisions possible. I'll be incredibly sad if she has that awful disease. I would appreciate any responses. Thanks so much!
