    My 2 year old rooster began limping yesterday, doesn't look like he has bumblefoot. Today he is just laying around. I got him from a local person, (not breeder). I don't think he would have been vaccinated for Marek's. Can a chicken get this at any age? Also, is there anything I can do at this point to prevent others from getting it, if that is what it is?
