just inherited a feather legged roo. Came with scaley leg mites and chicken lice. treated legs and feet with bag balm and body with DE as well as bathing in dawn and vinegar for about a month. parasites seem to be gone. He is isolated from our flock. We have been putting tripple antibiotic ointment on the red areas and terramycin (oxytetraclyne HCI) in his water for 2 days, but it doesn't seem to be helping. If anyone knows what this angry red thing is, (it seems to only be at the base of his feathers all the way past his hocks), and how to treat it, please respond. It looks very painful. (I don't know if "hocks" is the right word, but just to where a bare legged chickens feathers would stop) We tried to cut off the feathers to get a better look and access for treatment and remaining feathers are gooey and dirty from all the ointments. By the way, the white feather started to bleed a little, it doesn't have any fuzzies. Is it true that there is "blood feathers"? Also I was told that he is a blue cochen, if anyone can confirm that. Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
