Hello all! I'm new to having a flock and have a hen who had a pretty bad case of scaly leg mite after being broody for around a month and a half and hatching a clutch. I have treated her and she is improving SO MUCH.She has one toe that has not improved and is dry and cracked and when it is bent it cracks and bleeds pretty easily. She favors that leg and I can tell it has to be so painful. It looks black so I'm fearful it might break off, but blood is flowing to that area. Any suggestions on how to treat her? She has chicks so I'm afraid pulling her away from them would cause a ton of stress.
