    Scaly Leg is an infestation caused by a small parasitic mite known as Cnemidocoptes Mutans. This tiny mite lives in the ground or sometimes the floor of the henhouse in damp conditions. It then burrows under the scales of the bird's legs or feet, where it causes great discomfort.

    A crop infection, also referred to as sour or slow crop, is a serious condition in your bird. The symptoms are regurgitating thick muck and maybe an open beak. If it isn't treated quickly, your bird could die.
