Possible Marek's Disease

Postby gumboots63 » Sat May 28, 2011 7:21 pm

We took Suzy chook (aged 6 yrs) to the vet recently cos she was in a bad way and we don't have the ability to kill her.
The vet said she had a cold leg and seemed to be paralyzed, but did not know why. Then today I was reading a book at home and that was symptoms of Marek's disease.
It's becoming difficult to find a vet who can give me definite help and I can't afford to take every chook to the vet when they appear sick.
Coca Cola hen (aged 5 yrs) has been treated tonight for scaley leg mites but she has a foot that is turning over, like Suzy's was. We have isolated her, as we did to Suzy, but am wanting to know if there is any person around the Inglewood area who could/would possibly help with a chicken death if need be, or any other advice please.

Thanks
