I have a beautiful lavendar orpington who has gotten very sick and is almost completely paralyzed. She is still breathing, doesn't open her eyes and only responds by moving her foot or her head a tiny bit when I talk to her. All signs point to Marek's but I'm a relative rookie so who knows. She is my first hen and I am completely heartbroken. I had no idea I would enjoy my girls so much when I got them early this year and while I have taken the loss of a few other birds in stride, this one is totally different. I feel as though I should end her suffering but don't know the easiest and most humane way to do so. There aren't any vets around here who deal with poultry and I know most people would think me crazy to care about my chicken to the point where I am bawling as I type this. Can anyone give me suggestions on ways to deal with this? I don't know if I should let her die naturally or end her suffering. Any suggestions are appreciated.
