    I'm doing an excessive amount of googling and I've come up with everything from worms to mareks disease but I'm hoping some experts can help.

    My were Pekin is having trouble walking, she is using her wings to turn herself around and spending a lot of time sitting down. We had one that had this a month ago and that ended with a trip to the vet to be PTS but I really don't want this for this wee girl.

    There is no swelling on her foot, no cuts or anything that indicates anything sore but she's definitely not walking properly.
