    I am dealing with a mystery disease and the end symptoms is as you described. they loose inability to stand, walk, or have any coordinated movements. Read my post to see if you had any other symptoms that I described. Pics would be great!

    you might want to try giving some polyvisol baby vitamins without iron, vita.E,and poultry vitamin B,and a very small amount of selenium. (large quantities can be toxic) See if you get any improvement with the vitamins. some times a vitamin defiency can cause the lack of coordination, inability to walk, can even cause birds to do flips.Giving those vitamins can't hurt. it takes about a month for full recovery if it's a deficiency. Mareks disease can also cause those symptoms. was she vaccinated for Mareks as a chick? I'd try the vitamins, if there wasn't any improvement I might consider that Mareks could be a possibility.
