    I just went out to see the chickens and one of my favorite girls, Uh-Oh's, feet seem to be paralyzed and she can barely walk. Also her crop seems distended and large, somebody please tell me if thats what she has because I think my dad is going to do the "deed" to prevent her spreading it to all the other girls.

    Normally with Mareks it affects mostly one leg. Is she really skinny? They typically lose weight fast and eat a lot like they are starving. Worms can look like that too.
