    Hi, newbie here, been to several things today on google and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Several of my chickens seem to be developing a scaliness to their feet and fore legs. About 3 months ago I had a roster that I tried to treat with the same thing by cleaning well and using first blue spray the scarlet oil, both to no avail. He just got worse and worse and I ended up having to put him down. Then this morning when out tending to my crew, I noticed several of my hens are getting this "scaly" look now too. Please help, is this some kind of fungus? I live in Florida in the Panhandle, does climate/region have anything to do with this?

    Do a search on scaly leg mites. It sounds like you might be having a problem with that. Many threads will have pictures and ways to treat it. Good luck!

    Scaly leg mites just take some Vaseline and put on their legs and reapply as needed til they heal up and look normal again. These mites are every where.
