I found a craigslist ad for a free pair of silver duckwing OEGBs. They were close to work so I decided to go take a look at them. The gentleman who was giving them away was pleasant enough so I was optimistic they would be decent birds. He led me out to some completely exposed open wire rabbit hutches and in one of the rabbit hutches were 2 very sweet OEG birds. It was kind of dark but I could immediately see problems with their legs. Incredibly scaly and black or missing nails/toes. I asked him if he knew what the problem was and he said they had leg mites that did permanent damage to them over the summer. He said they have been treated with sevin but never got better. I didn't want to leave them there in that cage (it is getting below freezing here in Michigan now) so I took them... They had wire on 3 sides of the cage plus the floor. I have them quarantined of course. I put vaseline on their legs to hopefully start treating them. I did notice some balding spots on the hen's underside. I don't know if that is from living a life in a cage or a possible case of lice/mites? I can get some pictures if you guys need them. I think these birds can be saved and I would like to try because both of them are very docile and easily handled. Any help you guys/gals can give would be awesome.
