    Do chicken scales fall of, then grow back? My rir's scales are brittle and it look like they are growing back?
    Thanks

    are you talking about leg scales? can you post a picture for us? It sounds like you may have scaly leg mites

    No, it doesn't look like scaly leg mites. It just looks like it falling off and another is growing back.
