    Help. My rooster who is roughly 8 months old has stopped using his legs. He just lies on his side. He doesn't eat or drink. His eyes seem alert. When I try to stand him up he just falls over. What could this be?

    Oh I hope it wasn't Marek's. Paralysis is one of the symptoms. How did he make out? Was he your only rooster?
