    Hi, I just got a new chicken from a friend. She's a bantam breed, I'm guessing an old English game. She hatched last year in the spring. I got her yesterday, and found out her feet were kind of messed up. I don't know what to do! One of her toes is even missing! I put Neosporin on it last night, looking the same in the morning. She can walk, eat, drink, basically do anything but she did not roost last night. She's really cute and adorable, but I don't want to lose her from this. Any suggestions?

    See how they're kinda crusty? They look like they could fall off.

    I feel so bad for her :(

    See how there's no fourth toe? She had it yesterday, it fell off during the night. Checked her, there was no blood, and no toe. She needs her toenails clipped, going out with the dog clippers now. She's in with two young frizzes, not getting pecked on, should I separate them? Thanks to all in advance.

    Also, they are very crusty. I'm afraid she'll lose more toes. Any advice?

    Could this be a very severe case of scaly leg mites?
