Apple identification

Hello: I recently purchased a home in Clarion County, and we have 2 apple trees that I believe are McIntosh or a variant of McIntosh such as Empire or Macoun, but would like an definite answer, if possible. The house was built in 1952, and I believe the two trees were planted some shortly after. I have attached pictures of the apples and also the trees. Thank you.

White bull calf

Hello, I'm not sure who I would contact, I would greatly appreciate it if this message could be forwarded to the correct group. I have a bull calf that is sired by a low line angus bull and a Hereford momma, my question is because he is all white. I can include pictures in a response email, but I am curious how common this is or if anyone has seen this before? Thank you for your time

leg paralysis in 8 week old chicken

Hello, i have a 10 week old chick that was not putting weight on one leg. On July 7th she went in to roost, and when i let them out in the morning of july 8th she was not walking on her left leg, she was hobbling and resting on her hock.. I found a vet to see her on Wednesday july 10th (20 years experience with birds of various type) he felt that her tendon was in the proper position. He thought she may have just sprained or strained something in her leg. He prescribed Metacam 2X a day. When following up with him 5 days later, he was discouraged that she was not using her leg yet. He had previously brought up the possibility of Mareks disease, and now feels that is most likely the issue. My concern is, could it be something else, that would be treatable?
I would hate to have a Necrpsy done, only to find that i could have aided her healing from some simple ailment.
She is the only chicken affected of 8 chicks in their own coop, and 13 grown chickens in a nearby coop.The young chicks had only been outside for two weeks prior to her developing this condition.
She is currently separated to a pen indoors, and i am practicing bio-security measures.
Our vet feels a vitamin deficiency is unlikely, as she was being fed from a new bag of chick starter feed, however i wonder about attempting specifically B vitamins and choline, as deficiencies in these seem to present with symptoms similar to hers according to the Merck veterinary manual.
If a vitamin deficiency were the cause, how long would it take to see improvement, Yesterday (july 16th) I fed her an egg with nutritional yeast added as it is high in B vitamins and choline from in the egg.
Update, today is 9 days since the onset, she has not gotten any worse, and this morning she was attempting to stand on the affected leg.
If i attempt to support her by placeing my hand under her body, she pulls her "good" leg up, and refuses to put it down.
Given all of this information, i wonder what the likelyhood is that it is Mareks, sort tissue injury or vitamin difficiency. I also wonder what to expect for her recovery, and future quality of life.

Thank you
