I’ve noticed that one of my silkies has been having trouble with her left foot. I noticed it several weeks ago when my roo was trying to mate with her. Her leg was king of out to the side and she couldn’t stand up when he got off of her. Today she was on the back corner of her pen not moving around and just hanging out. I picked her up and she moved her leg fine. Her toes on her right foot curl under and grasp my fingers. Her toes on her left foot do not curl under and grasp my finger. She has no visible injuries. Another thing I noticed is that her right eye is not staying open but her left eye is very bright and active. I’ve looked up Marek’s and I’m not sure if that is a possibility or not. It doesn’t really seem like it to me. None of the other silkies in my pen have shown any similar abnormalities. Please help me with any insight. Thank you.
