    On no, I am so sorry that she is worse and now not eating. It seems odd that the sister is showing symptoms as well. Mareks may be the problem, but I doubt it affects two at the same time. I assume that you meant that you were giving them B complex and not vitamin
    D.

    If you should lose the little one, please think about getting a necropsy through your state vet or poultry college lab. They can test for Mareks or another possible cause of death. Here is a good link with state vets and some instructions on refrigerating but not freezing the body:

    I’ve noticed their legs are very weak and lack much muscle at all.

    I’m doubting she makes it through the night. She had been given yogurt with vitamin b for dinner with the option of chick crumbles
