    There used to be something about the number of post you have to have before you can post a picture, but that might not be true any more as a lot of things have changed. It should tell you in the information BYC sent you when you joined.

    your new boy has leg mites, which is why around his toes and lower legs look uneven. put liquid dish soap on for a week or two to kill them and dust for mites. He's pretty and yes, not a willie. maybe a mix

    I don't know what your new boy is but he's not a Welsummer---wrong color, leg color, body type and wing set.

    thank you. i thought his legs where to scaley. i isolated him from the rest of the flock and will starting treating him for leg mites tomorrow. i read up on treatments. one treatment is to scrub his leggs and feet once a day for 2 weeks with soapy water, then after each scrubing you rub in petroleum jelly. any other recommendations?
