    I posted a few weeks about a poorly chicken. We thought possibly Mareks, turns out nope just low pecking order meant she was malnourished, felt very guilty!! But then Friday found a chicken with a floppy neck, she unfortunately had to be sent to heaven today. Totally different symptoms and was a decent wieght etc. she came out of house first thing with the rest but within 3hrs had a floppy neck. That just got worse and worse, any ideas on what it could have been?
