Hey there, My mum currently has a sick hen who has four 3 week old chicks. She is showing signs of Mareks, her legs are very weak, and her wings are becoming weak too. She can barely walk. My mum has seen a chicken with the same symptoms through this before, by isolating her, and nursing her back to health. The hen and her chicks are already isolated, but a decision needs to be made as to whether the chicks are taken from their mother. Looking after the chicks will be no hassle, the worry is that taking her babies from her will stress her out. The chicks are constantly jumping all over her etc, and it has to be exhausting... Would removing the chickens help or hinder her recovery attempt? (Just going to throw this in... I've done some reading on Mareks and realise the outlook isn't great. The decision has been made to try and see this hen through to health, and that's what we intend to do). I would really appreciate any ideas on this one! Thanks in anticipation . Jessica.
