    Hi All,
    I have an issue with an 8 year old hen's leg. She has what appears to be a growth on her leg, that at first I thought was mites, but there is no evidence of mites and treating it with oil hasn't worked. According to my knowledge she hasn't been injured, and it wasn't there when I deployed. I'm wondering if I brought something back that could have caused this. Any help would be appreciated, and I'll get a picture tomorrow

    I've run her to the vet, and the vet said she had mites that haven't completely cleared up.
