Rooster with red raw legs. ... mites?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I rescued this stray rooster a few weeks ago. His legs are red and raw, scales on his feet are raised. Is this mites? I have been spraying with vetricyn, applying bag balm, had his legs wrapped with vet wrap for a week (changing every couple days) with not much improvement. Any ideas what this is?

It almost looks like a bacterial infection along with scaly leg mites.  You might want to try applying an antibiotic ointment to his legs.

Can You start your own thread at the top of this page? That way you will get more help. SallySunshine has some good info on how to help in hatching problems if you do a search in the box also at the top of this page.
