    Our Polish, Phyllis, has been having increasing symptoms for a little over a week. I thought that she was dropped and had a bruise on her leg but it is possible that this is not the case.
    She mostly lays down and looks tired. She eats plenty and drinks and I have vitamins in her water. She does not walk far and steps on her own feet when she tries to walk. She looks alert but has trouble walking and falls down sometimes.
    Finally, when she pooped today a bigger than a marble sized bright red bubble came out of her bum and then went back in. Eeeww. And her poop is mostly diarrhea. She eats chicken feed, grass and oatmeal.
    Anyone's thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    My first thought was Mareks, but then you said there was the problem with her bum so I'm not sure now. I wish I could help. :( Did you do a search on it in the disease threads? I hope you get it figured out. I know how helpless we feel sometimes.
