    Scaly Leg Mites?

    So minky was upside down against the feeder he was fine but I was examining the pictures I took of him and I was wondering what those scabs on his feet are? I have heard of scaly leg mites but I haven’t done much research and I know it would be more difficult to cure him since he has feathered feet.

She had just eaten a bunch of mealworms so it might have something to do with that. This was taken right after it...

    Silkie chicken

    We have what is supposed to be a silkie chicken named minky but she has grown this bump on her face and she has started to make loud sounds that aren’t really crowing so much as loud talking. We don’t know if she may be a rooster but if not then what is the bump on her face?

    Today was very hot and we put electrolytes in the chickens water and the packet said it was for a gallon of water but we only have six small chickens so a gallon is way too much for them so instead we put a small amount from the packet. I was wondering if anyone else does this?
