    My Abigail has these red spots on both of her legs. She doesn't pick at them or seem bothered, but I am worried about them.

    Anyone know what this is? Is it contagious? What do I do???

    Thanks for your input! I am so worried.

    If that were my bird, I'd either coat them in vaseline or spray some Pam on them and see how they do.

    She looks good to me. Seen them before, dont know what they are, doesnt seem to be anything to worry about though.


    The position of her is a bit strange though. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, her position is a bit funny. I hold my chickens like babies -- laying on their back in my arms. Odd, I know, but they always relax that way. [​IMG]
