    CarlieO Chillin' With My Peeps

    I came home this evening to find one of my 22 chicks (6 weeks old) stumbling around, unable to maintain balance, and looking sideways at the ground. I see no obvious signs of injury. I've tried googling Marek's to see if that's it but there's just really vague information as far as symptoms online. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

    As I said, it's in with 21 other chicks (22 total) and I have no where to put it other than an isolated pen with no heat. It will probably get into the low 40's tonight but will be in a warmed barn.

    Thank you so much for your help! I'm so worried!! (about that chick and the welfare of the rest of them)
