    Hello! Peekaboo, my little white silkie is okay. However, we got another silkie down and acting much worse.
    Symptoms: Legs in front or one in the back one in the front, twitching, laying on its side acting if it’s dying.

    Q: How old?

    A: LOST TRACK!

    Q: Bloody, normal, or runny?

    A: normal-runnyish.

    Please help my silkies, Erie just started acting up after we moved her and 3 other chicks into another pen.

    It does sound like Mareks Disease.
