    It does look like Marek's. [​IMG] But I wouldn't give up hope yet. Like Excessive mentioned, start her on vitamins, as a vitamin deficiency is another possibility.

    I'm so sorry I didn't see this before. It does look like Marek's, but there are other things that can look like this too. I'm really so sorry that you lost her. :( Did you have her tested or sent for necropsy? Was she or any of your other birds vaccinated?
