    SHe is almost 6 months and has just started laying. Just today she started losing her balance and is almost unable to walk because of it. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

    Mareks disease will cause staggering and a "drunken" gait in birds. Of course she may just be sore from her body adjusting to pushing an egg out every day.
