Hello, this is my first post. Apologies for the length of the post, I hope someone can help us shed some light on what might be wrong with our young Brahma. Just before Christmas our lovely Brahma, approx 20-ish weeks (or thereabouts, we think) collapsed. We brought her indoors, where she has been living in a playpen near the Rayburn ever since! We are absolutely stumped by what might be wrong with her. Initially, she seemed to have some leg paralysis, but having been indoors for a few days seemed to take a turn for the better so we returned her to the flock. However, she was being severely picked on by some of the warrens and took a turn for the worse again and wasn't trying to get away, so we brought her back inside. She was / still is very very thin, but I have been feeding her a protein rich diet along with other supplements / herbs that I have read might help (wet catfood, scrambled eggs with oregano and cinnamon, corn, coconut oil, poultry spice, alongside commercial layers pellets). She does seem to have put on a small amount of weight, but her keel is still very prominent and she feels very frail and light. Over xmas, she did a lot of sitting very still, but now seems more keen to move around, so on dry days we put her outside and she returns indoors at night as I am worried that returning her to the flock will be detrimental while she is still so weak. She seems to walk quite strangely, she lifts her legs and places them down again quite deliberately, if you know what I mean (probably not!!), but she will have a go at running if she thinks there's a tasty niblet for her. When she stands still, her legs seem to have a slight tremble, which I wonder if it is just from lack of muscle tone seeing as though she is so thin. She prefers sitting down to sleep rather than perching. She has been through a phase of sitting on her heels, but seems to have stooped that now. Also there have been a couple of occasions where one wing hangs low for a minute or two, but she does correct this. No signs of bumble foot, or any specific leg / foot lesions or injury. She has quite a bit of diarrhea, but is feeding and drinking well. We have dusted her for fleas / mites, which she now seems to be clear of, her small comb and face seem to be quite pale. We are currently treating her with Flubenvet. She is also wormed. Eyes seem clear and normal (i.e. not like discolourations associated with Marek's) and she is quite alert. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong with her, or whether there's anything else we can do for her? Should we carry on as we are, or return her to the flock? Please help! We're now really quite attached to the poor mite. Thank you.
