    Okay so this morning when I went to let the chickens roam and one of my twelve week old hens is walking funny, she is low to the ground and sitting and when she walks it's like she is tossing her legs out to the sides.... Is this mareks?.. This is my first batch of chickens, I lifted her up and checked her out but didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Any advice is appreciated!

    It is hard to say anything conclusive. She also could have strained one of her legs. You might want to sequester her so you can watch her more carefully.
