I have been having trouble with my copper maurans feet for awhile now but they have gotten worse. He has bumps and sores on his feet now. Just the top the bottoms are fine. There are crusty bumps and when explored I found curled up feathers and almost like a thick cream colored oil. I have treated him and the coop with poultry dust. I have used ivomec and they just keep getting worse. The hens in the same pen don't have any problems with there feet. They have bare red butts but I think I have a bully. They have been treated the same as the rooster. I think I figured out the bully and have her moved. The other pens in the same row have no problems feet or feathers. Idk what could be going on. I attached some photos. View attachment 1902808 View attachment 1902809

Do you notice the rooster scratching and pecking at his legs and feet? It looks like scaly leg mites with inflammation and infection mixed in. It needs more than just a hit of Ivermectin in my opinion. It's also very painful so baby aspirin could help make him more comfortable. One whole tablet in the morning and another in late afternoon.

First, I suggest a nice long warm water soak with Epsom salt and a splash of Betadine. After drying his legs, spray with Vetericyn and coat them with heavy castor oil. In addition to doing this every day until you start seeing improvement, I would also treat him with injectible penicillin for what appears to be infection.

I did a pretty decent dose of ivomec once a week for 3 weeks. I don't see him scratching or pecking at his legs, and he never limps either.
