    [​IMG] Please help, I don't know what's wrong with my barred rocks' foot, took pics, its been muddy for several days.
    None of my other chickens have it, please help me.
    I don't think its leg mites. Her feet are very soft in that bubbled region, she also has scabs.
    Thanks

    I've seen those scabs before and I dont mess with them unless they swell, turn red or cause the bird to limp. The raised scale on the toe could possibly be just shedding a scale or she mightve got it caught on something and caused it to lift up. I'd go ahead and put a dab of vaseline on it, rub it in well, do that once or twice a week for a month or so just in case.
