    We purchsed a hen at our local livestock yard and noticed weeks later that her feet had swollen and looks like they have warts on top of her feet. We have now noticed in the pens adjacent to hers that those chickens are developing the same symptoms. Does anyone know what this is and if it is treatable?

    Does it really look like warts, or does it look like the scales are lifted? Is it on the legs too? If so, this might be scaley leg mites.

    No, it is not on the legs. It is just on the feet. They look swollen and knotty. The hen we purchased is now having difficulty walking. Thanks for any advise. We have a turkey in a near by lot that has it.
