Hi folks, we have 12 young hens - born late-June which makes them about 14 weeks old. Today we noticed that one of our reds (NH Reds) was limping badly - looks like she can't put any weight on her left leg. My wife and I checked her out but couldn't find anything that we could see. She can limp around and follow the flock, but will then sit down and relax. Sometimes while standing up she lifts her bad foot in the air, like it hurts to put down. Again - we couldn't see any obvious causes while examining her foot. Doing some online research, my wife gets panicked that it might be Marek's disease (the chicks were vaccinated at the hatchery, supposedly). We noticed that this pullet has a very funny colored eye. Cloudy/misshapen irises are a symptom of Marek's of course - as is paralysis -although our girl has both symptoms, which are usually for two different types of the disease (According to my reading), but may overlap anyway, take a look at these pictures - do you think this is 1) an interesting, pretty eye with a funky iris or 2) an iris that looks like it is diseased, possibly Marek's ?? first, the good eye: then the "bad" eye: second pic of the bad eye: more info: the foot problem doesn't seem like "paralysis" ... it looks just like a bad limp. This just happened today, so I haven't noticed any weight loss, lack of eating, or pooping problems. The foot is the left foot, and the "bad" eye is the left eye. Our hens free range outside during the day. We have 3 BO, 3 Araucana, 3 BR and 3 NH Reds. none of the other birds are showing any other signs of having issues. I'm not really looking to take this bird to the Vet - rather, to make sure that I don't lose my whole flock by letting a diseased bird run unchecked... I'm not really sure what my options are though - 1) hope she's fine and that we're overreacting about the eye, and hope the leg heals - but that might result in disease spread 2) euthanize her? but I don't want to do that if she's just got a twisted ankle. She certainly doesn't seem to be in dire straits yet and it seems like that would be overreacting to me - but I am just worried about the rest of my flock if this IS Marek's disease. Unfortunately, I don't have many options for quarantine - they are all in the same coop in the barn... I don't really want to stuff her in a cardboard box in the basement.. Take a look at those pics and let me know if you think the eye definitely looks bad, or if it's just a special colorful iris... and from what level of expertise you are speaking! thanks a bunch.
