My favorite little hen is not well. Per the sticky here are her stats: Old English Bantam about 1 year old don't know weight, couldn't be much She was laying on her side with her leg out, and her leg was shaking, spasming. I watched her for a while. She would walk around, then sit down and her leg would spasm out. Also, her tail feathers were way down, when she usually has a high beautiful set of tail feathers. After a while she got up, pooped (it looked perfectly normal) and seemed to be a little better. She carried her tail feathers higher, but not like normal. She just started doing this today. She's been great, looking healthy and gorgeous no signs of trauma I got her last May, along with a silkie. The silkie died suddenly three weeks after we got her. Over the course of the summer we lost our Ameracauna and then our Golden Comet. Both had symptoms fairly similar, but not exactly the same. The Ameracauna and Comet were not able to stand, and died within a day or two of onset. She eats lay pellets, scratch, free range from our yard (no chemicals are used here) and kitchen scraps. They have sand in the run and straw in the coop. I haven't done anything yet. I have plumbers running in and out my back yard and back door. What I did in the past was isolate the bird in its own cage with food and water. It didn't matter. They died anyway. I know I'm probably going to lose her, but it's really hard because she's so pretty and my favorite. Her picture is my avatar. Also, I have two other hens that I wish I could protect somehow, but I know that if this is Marek's there's not much I can do.
