I posted this on Cochins International hoping to get some positive but honest replies. http://www.voy.com/14771/ I recently purchased and had shipped a Partridge roo, he is said to be 3 years old. I would like to show him, I have never done shows before and cant wait! After looking him over well, I have had some grooming to do to him, pop his spurs as they were HUGE and gave him a nice bath to get any critters off of him, I have Ivermec'ed him for any possable worms he may have had and also to kill any other bugs that were missed along with dusting him with DE. I got him from a known breeder, (I think). Anyway, my question for you all is, his skin. His breast all the way back and up to about his oil gland is red, like an irritation of some sort. His feet at the shaft of the feathers on his toes is red. Is this normal for the feet could it just be because of the feathering? IS this something I should be worried about and not get to show for the first time? What can I do to clean him up? The previous owner used Seven dust on him, could it be a reation to that? My first show is coming up in about 3 weeks, I really hope to show him! Here are some pictures. Not sure if pictures will show if not let me know Foot Oil Gland Red Skin The roo Just wanted to say these were taken BEFORE his bath, and one has some dirty feathers right around his bottom area well from the poo LOL Thanks for any help! This is him before his bath, I think he had a fungal issue with his comb as well and have been putting Anti Fungal cream on it and its cleaning up nicely.
