    in her legs. she's been like this for about 2 1/2
    weeks. i have giving her worm medicine . but any
    advice would be appreciated. thanks

    Is one leg forward and one leg back?

    Maybe mites? If it's mites then look at the base of her feathers for red moving dots.

    If the legs are one forward & one back then it can be a thing or two, but sometimes it's mareks.

    Do a search for some of her symptoms & see your results. It may give you a better idea. [​IMG]

    GOOD LUCK!!

    Give vitamin B intensive therapy immediately. Your baby will improve within days if that is the problem.
