I recently got some chickens. one of them seems to have swollen feet. what could it be caused from?
It's really hard to tell from this picture but sometimes mites can cause swollen legs and feet
looks like leg mmites put dish soap every day one them for a few weeks
ok thank you
Use the search box and look up "scaly leg mites."
(A better pic of her feet would help)
After you rinse them for a half hour then you can put oil on them. Like vegetable oil or even vaseline. You dont really have to do it every day if you put oil on them. I would also suggest that you check to see if they have any lice or other mites and treat for that too.
I agree with dawg53
here is another pic sorry its not the best
For leg mites do i but the vaseline on her legs once a day?
I think maybe 2X a week would be adequate. Because the vaseline will stick there and the mites will smother. But be assured there will be eggs and some mites that remain. So this will be a long term treatment plan as in months. She may never grow her scales back on the legs (or whatever they are called) but she will be a lot happier and not so itchy.
