    I have a couple of new Brahmas. I noticed they have light colored feet and toes, but with some brown along some of the creases. Is this normal? The scales are smooth. They are a few months old and seem to be fine otherwise.

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    Quote:Sure, here it is. Hope you can make it out! I am adding these two new Brahmas into my current flock and am a little paranoid about bringing disease or something in. What do you think?? [​IMG]

    I think it's wonderful that you're so vigilant, but i think you might be looking too closely. [​IMG]

    That looks like normal chicken feet to me.

    Thanks, I feel better! The worst part is that I made my poor husband go out in the cold at night and help me get the chicken to take pics. Poor guy! [​IMG]
