    I just picked up a few hens from the same place half my flock came from. I noticed this one has injuries on her legs.... should I just leave it or do something? She is walking fine. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure if that's bumblefoot or not, I don't think it is. I would separate her from the flock until you find out for sure what's wrong with her legs like if she has an infection or something.

    I just looked into it a little more and it looks like scaly leg mites...

    Definitely should seperate it and clean out your coop really really well
