chicken does not walk

How to diagnose the problem? She looks fine, eats a little bit, but can't walk.

Could be Merecks Disease. My chickens came down with this and I lost the entire flock to it.

Does she hobble? Does she stand? Will she fly? is she weak? How do you keep her? Do you have a big flock?

Questions like this help those in the know (not me) narrow down the possibilities.
