    Since you received no replies, Jeeper (Stevo) was giving your post a "bump" back up to the top of the forum in hopes someone would answer you.

    Question: What makes you say that you don't think it's Mareks? Was this chick vaccinated for Mareks?

    Limping and standing on one leg means you should check for bumble foot.
