Hello All, I have used this site to answer many questions, and now look forward to asking some as well! I have a small flock, 2 hens, 1 rooster, and two ducks (1 male 1 female). When we received the flock, the rooster had a bad case of scaly leg mites. We were told it was frostbite damage, so it was left untreated until I noticed them getting worse. After a couple weekends in the "spa" (Garage), he is on the mend and looking much better. I put him back in the coop after the first spa weekend, he continued to show improvement. I put him back after the second spa weekend and the following day, his feet had been picked at by the hens. He had one open wound on each foot. Not bad at all, but if left in there, they would have kept pecking. He is been in the "spa" for almost an entire week straight now, receiving daily treatments and cuddles, he is truly spoiled now. The wounds are not self inflicted, as they began to heal immediately after we separated him again. He is now getting little blood spots all up the leg, very tiny, always dry when I see it. It appears to just be healing. Can anyone shed some light on this part of the healing process for me? Another concern... his nails are pretty long. Do these need to be trimmed? Other than that, chicken/duck life is good. Not supplementing any heat unless it gets to -20. Still getting eggs from both hens almost daily. Duck just went through molt, so she has been on hold for a month or so.
