I suspect something is up with my birds legs. Right now it looks like there are patches of dry skin and the scales are starting to look more distinct, though not yet raised. To my knowledge chickens have never been kept on this property, I know there have been none for at least 5 years. All of my birds, except two seemingly unaffected guineas, have been brought here straight from the brooder at 2-5 days old. None appeared to be infested. If it is scaly leg mites, then they had to have come from contact with a wild bird, or my shoes, both are longshots. We do have a lot of bugs here, however. My legs have looked like ground meat going on two years now and even my cats have bites all over their bellies. Can chiggers look like leg mites? I've read they attack the body of the bird, but in the case of bad infestation might they go for whatever spot is vacant? Do you think Eprinex will kill it off regardless?
