    Has anyone ever had a cockeral or pullet over the age of 6 months get Mareks?

    Also, has anyone ever had a bird with Mareks get swollen feet?

    Thanks!

    sorry no experience... but I have read that it is possible, just more common in younger ones.

    not sure about that, but have read here that a swollen foot can be due to bumblefoot, look at the bottom of the foot, looking for a dark spot, if you see that look up bumblefoot here in the search engine, may be due to an injury, if thats the case keep her clam for a few days. not sure about Marke's , know it can cause lameness.
