    Recently we noticed our Muscovy hen’s feet look a little cracked and maybe dry. We don’t know if it’s because of the cold winter we just had or what. Anything we should do? Picture attached.

    Have you heard of Bag Balm? It's great stuff. It's made for animals but I have some for myself as well as my chickens. It's made with lanolin that penetrates tissues deeply and conditions and protects from drying out and cracking. You can buy it it feed stores but pharmacies also usually sell it. You can't miss that bright green can.

    Rub it on at night while she isn't in water, mud etc.
