    I HAVE HAD SEVERAL HEN'S (ABOUT 5) DIE OF MAREK'S DISEASE. THE LAST ONE THAT CAME DOWN WITH IT I WAS ABLE TO CURE. I GAVE HER SOME COLLOIDAL SILVER (THE BRAND SUPER NATURAL SILVER) AND IT SEEMS TO HAVE DONE THE TRICK. THE HEN WAS UNABLE TO WALK, LYING ON HER SIDE, WING EXTENDED. WE BROUGHT HER IN, CLEANED HER UP, PUT HER IN A DOG CRATE WITH FOOD AND WATER AND GAVE HER AN UNMEASURED DOSE (HALF A DROPPER FULL) OF THE SILVER SOLUTION, AND THEN ANOTHER LATER IN THE NIGHT....THE NEXT DAY WE GAVE HER ONE MORE DOSE AND SHE WAS UP AND WALKING...WE LET HER OUT WITHE THE OTHER 19 HENS AND GAVE HER ANOTHER DOSE AFTER THEY ALL SETTLED IN TO ROOST. THIS IS A PARTICULAR ODDITY SINCE I HAVE HAD SO MANY JUST UP AND DIE WITH THIS...THOUGHT YOU GUYS MIGHT LIKE TO KNOW!

    BTW..THIS WAS A WEEK AGO AND SHE IS STILL JUST FINE...WALKING...EATING AND DOING CHICKEN STUFF!!
