    One of my girls has red legs, it looks like the scales are coming off. She's moulting and moving slowly but eating,drinking and pooping Ok. She's not laying (which I think is because of the moulting). She is 2 years old, a red sex-link. This is my first experience with moulting, is it ok that she's so lethargic? Here's the picture of her leg, there's nothing in the coop that could be scraping her. Has anyone ever seen this before?
    Thanks!

    Mine girls legs look like that too...sometimes it's more noticable. It surprised me the first time I saw it.

    Well, that's a relief. The 3 one year olds have scales all around their legs and they not red.(They are the same breed. Maybe it's an age thing. Thanks everyone!
