Hi I have a 12-13 week old pullet who appears to have Marek's. Over the past month she has slowed down, starting eating/drinkning while laying down only, and generally keeping to herself. She is the bottom of the pecking order. She has paralysis on the left side in both the wing and leg. She can only eat and drink if I present her or place her near foodor water. Her eyes seem clear so far. Her neck is fine so far as well. She seems to gasp for air but sometimes settles down and sleeps without gasping. I isolated her about a week ago. She could not move and had somehow separated herself out in the rain in the far end of the run. I am sure she was near death. I give her vitamins and antibiotic twice a day and she seemed to recover except for the paralysis. She can scoot herself to the food or drink, but I have seen no paralysis improvement at all. Poop seems normal but for one day it was bright green (the day after I started antibiotics). Now it is back to normal. She is the only one who seems to have any symptoms at all. The other 16 birds show no symptoms. I do not know if she was vaccinated or not. I have a few questions: 1) Is this Marek's? The left leg does not always present itself in the front. 2) If not Marek's what else could it be? I read around this forum and thought it might be a vitamin deficiency but again she is still paralyzed. 3) I have read that some vaccinated birds can recover. How long does it take for the virus to take its course? 4) Am I being cruel keeping her alive? Is this only the beginning? The Marek's information is vague on how long the paralysis will last. Thanks for any advice. I will continue to care for her, I just dont want her to suffer.
