Hi all, we have a young 15 week old Barred Plymouth Rock hen that is having trouble walking. It first started with her left leg but then shifted to her right, her left leg is now completely functional but her right leg is loosing alot of muscle mass and she seems to drag the foot every where or walk on it with the toes curled up. I live in New Zealand and our vet told us that we do not have marrek or new castle in the country and they could not determine what the condition is, the anti-biotics and painkillers they prescribed did not seems to help either. The hen is eating and drinking very well, she seems to be always hungry. We had two adult brown shavers having simmilar problems before but they recovered within two days so we did not think too much about it, but our little barred rock doesn't seem to be getting any better after 8 days. We have been giving her human multi-vitamin droplets for the past three days but she doesn't seem to be getting better. I am just feeling very helpless towards her and our vet didn't help either, just wondering whether I should put her down because we cannot keep other chickens from bullying her outside and we can't keep her inside foever.
