    I have a new rooster a friend gave me a few weeks ago. He's the sweetest roo I've ever met! He even takes care of my baby chicks! Anyway, he has dark gray legs, my old chickens all have yellow. So 'm not sure if the dark gray is what makes them look funny or if he has mites. The scales on his legs look loose and you can see pink in between them. He doesn't pick at them or anything, doesn't act like they're itchy. Sound normal or maybe mites? Lmk if you need a pic. I am at work, but can post one later today.
