    I have a 6 week old RIR who is feathered out and won't stand. She has a normal appetite and will drink. Her poop appears to be normal. What could be wrong with her?

    [​IMG] How long has she been like this? Any history of trauma or injury? Was she vaccinated for Mareks as a baby chick?

    Glad I joined, hope someone out there has some info. to help her. I did repost on the Emergencies/Disease section. She has been like this since Monday afternoon, with little or no improvement since I isolated her from the others. I can not get over her appetite and water consumption. I did get some Duramycin-10 and started giving this to all 5 just incase she had infected the other 4 with what ever she may have. I still have them all inside and under a light with a very clean cage, I can't imagine what might have happened to her. She has had to trauma or injury and was not vaccinated for Mareks as a chick :-((
