    I too am very sorry. I know how heart breaking it is but you gave her the best shot and sadly it was not to be. Would you consider sending her for a necropsy?

    Thanks. It was heart breaking. I watched her hatch from the egg and she was my only chicken that enjoyed being pet. I lost my dog of 16 years 2 months ago and now my favorite hen. Just hoping the rest don’t get sick. I don’t know where to send her for a necropsy but I’m pretty sure it was Mareks she had all the classic symptoms the way her legs went dead. I already buried her. Thanks again for all the helpful info and suggestions.
