Weird growths on legs and feet of our chick, help!

post #1 of 5

She is about a month old. Eating/drinking/pooping like normal. Just noticed these strange growths on her feet and legs. Any ideas?
They told us she is a crested polish frizzle.

Could it be spurs, I can't really see from the pic maybe she is a he? 😊

Welcome to BYC.  If you are referring to the bumps that appear to be showing (the feathers are covering the area I am looking at) those are spur buds (one on each leg, right?).  Other than that I am not seeing anything out of place in the leg/feet so if it isn't what you are talking about a better photo, or drawing an arrow to the area you are taling about, will help. 

As for gender (as mentioned above) spur buds are not a reliable indicator of gender as many females will have buds or even outright spurs, and some males never develop them -- if you would take a photo of the bird in a natural, standing position showing it in side profile and also a nice headshot showing how it's headdress is coming in that would help for the gender question.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Here is a profile pic. Yes I am talking about the growths on each leg. There is also a growth on the side of one foot.

Thank you both for your help!
