Hen had blood on h feet - otherwise seems fine

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My 2 year old hen (red sex link) has what appears to be blood on her feet. There are no signs of trauma and she is acting fine. I tried to wash her feet but it seems to be under the skin. Nothing on her legs or anywhere else and all other hens seem fine. Any help is appreciated.

I would Google "scaly leg mites."

 

Are the scales on her legs lifting?

 

Can you post a photo?

Then said He unto them,

“But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it

and likewise his pack; and he that hath no sword,

let him sell his garment and buy one."
