    looks like she should be laying eggs, but if she was moved from one home to another it might stop her egg laying for a little bit.

    mite that feed under the scales on a chicken's leg. The infestation can become so bad that the scales actually stand out from the leg.
    Have you bathed your pullet? If you suspect mites, bathing or dipping or both would be a good idea. Also vaseline smothers mites on their leg. so wipe on a nice coating for sevral days.
