    Yeh bruising makes sence and they are always jumping up the rocks and sliding off them from in our garden.. I will try washing tomorrow.. Do I just use my hands or a cloth or a Brush to get it off( if it's removable)?

    A soft cloth Megan I would think, and rubbing gentrly - - and I have had another thought .... good old vinegar in the water you wash the legs with. Vinegar is good for so many things, and I wouldn't think it would hurt the chickens at all .... seeing as how ppl give Apple Cider Vinegar to their chooks in their drinking water. A softish to medium toothbrush, if the stain is stubborn might be an idea as well. Might have to purchase a medium bristle toothbrush at your supermarket. Let's know how you get on with all the ideas given on all the posts here. It is interesting to say the least.

    Cheers ......... AB

    If it is chicken pox, it will come up all on their combs, faces etc.
    There are many thread on it on BYc, just have a search and you will find a solution. I have no idea.

    Yes I agree with Luke in that I have no idea but I would guess bruising perhaps.

    It does look moldy, could be fungal.
    Did you try wiping it off?
    What did you find online?

    They are all really dark except the 4 wellie eggs in the right hand bottom of the bator. The light in here is just c....p so they don't show up well.
