i just found my favorite golden comet hen on the coop floor.she is 18 weeks old. she cant walk but is alert and seems to not be able to use her legs. she just kicks them and seems to have no control over her toes.

if there are any chicken lovers out there, does my hen have mareks or something else? should i just put her down?

blessings and luv

is she the only one who is having this problem? i would separate er from the flock in case it is a contagious disease. i assume she has no visible marks on her feet like a predator could have gotten a hold of her?

yeah the rest are fine. i have her separated, i was reading into mycotoxins and they were talking about field corn having fungi.

yesterday my daughter and i picked some field corn and she was feeding it to them. possibly she ate some bad corn.

she has no visible signs of injury. she is very alert.

for now im goin to elevate her a little bit so she can breath right and feed her some yogurt. she had a normal BM.

thanx for all the help maa

blessings and much luv

yeah i would give her some time and see if she pulls out of it. but i dont think it could have been from the corn. most your field corn is animal feed anyway. she could have gotten a hold of something else. do you have your birds cooped or are they free ranged?
since i have had all my birds free ranged and i have no problems. but i also have 2 livestock guardian dogs protecting my flock. well the one is still a pup so he more enjoys terrorizes the flock. :lol: caught him yesterday holding down my male muscovy duck!! bad! bad! dog! :spank:

try having 8 ancona ducks and a frickin goose! talk about noisy! the goose thinks the ducks are hers so she gets all upset when her ducks get out of line! every time i walk out of my house i am greeted with all my ducks that sound like they are laughing at me!
i have a lot of coyotes that run the creek behind my house every night but my dogs keep them at bay. i have another predator living down past my stable but not sure if its another feral cat or a coon. hasnt taken any of my birds yet to my knowledge though.
if you need any more cocks i got plenty. been trying to get rid of them but nobody wants them. dont know why they are big and beautiful. and they crow nice and loud right outside the bedroom window! no need for an alarm clock!
im gonna keep my big black cock though he is the only one i got.

lol i just got rid of most of my cocks last week. these two are the last ones i need to get rid of. i will have to cock block you :eusa_sile

my main cock finally has all the hens to himself. he is a big pushover though. i think next spring im goin to get some guinea fowl. i just love how they look and they ravage the tick population :headbang:

my ducks bitch all day at each other. when the drake gets pissed he walks into the back field and his significant other goes nuts calling for him.

:lol: oh cmon you know you want at least 6 more cocks! just pluck em and put em in the stew pot.
used to have guinea fowl but accidentally shot the last one while shooting my tom turkey. thank goodness! i hated those noisy lil fuckers! had 15 at one time but they were eaten up by predators. worst survival rate of any bird i have raised. and my chickens keep the tick population down around the house any way so no need for them anymore.
my muscovy ducks keep the skeeters at bay and they are a quiet breed. if i was to get more birds it would be more scovies. but im done with it. down to one goat and less than 30 birds now.
