Sorry for the trouble
Thank you. Is your answer that I should go back to my veterinarian?
Was this bird vaccinated against Marek's disease ?

Did you add any Vitamins to her feed ?

2-Vitamin B2 Deficiency
Any joint swellings ?
Is it likely she'd exhibit a kind of recovery (foot straightening out, better walking) and still have Marek's?
It is my differentials
what may cause the said symptoms
and you wanted thoughts
OK. According to the vet who felt her legs, there was nothing abnormal, and she doesn't flinch when touched or held.
I think I will let another expert to come and answer to this question since this is all I have for now. There might be another experts with other ideas. Is it o.k with you ?
Yes, thank you. And I'm sorry if I seemed weird in my responses. First time on this site, and I never "chat".
