I isolated the hen last light from the others. This morning it seems her left side is paralyzed. Can't support her weight. See how she is tonight.

Age of hen? Has she been eating & drinking OK? What about her poop, is it normal? Has she been bullied perhaps? Any other symptoms? Also check out Marek's thread.

Got home from work. She is eating and drinking good and layed an egg today. Trying to move around just loses her balance. I started her on duramycin-10. Wait till tomorrow see what the vet can find. Should I take the vet a stool sample?

I would. She will probably poop there, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared just in case she doesn't. Good luck. I am hoping the best for her.

Well back from the vet. From what she is claiming mine chicken has a strain of the herpies vires. Gave her a anti inflammatory shot and some meloxidyl oral medicine. Said if not better in 24 to 36hours I should cull her:( only time will tell.

Did she mention Marek's disease? That is a form the Herpes Virus. I feel so bad for you & your chicken.
