    Can anyone offer any advice for an 8 week old baby frizzle.
    Symptoms started about a week ago she started limping
    on 1 leg but now she is hardly moving either leg..I have
    removed her from the other chooks as she is quite delicate.
    She is still eating and drinking but is struggling to keep
    her balance...I am very sad as I have waited ages to hatch
    a frizzle I still have another which is not affected....

    I can't help you, unfortunately, but we have some very wise and helpful members who I'm sure will chime in soon.

    Good luck to you.

    Sounds like it definitely could be Mareks.
