I just posted a question about another chicken issue im having. Is this the beginning of scary leg mites? None of the other chickens appear to look like this...and I’m not positive if it is or just the way she’s roosting there. And yes that water is being changed today. :)

The scales do look raised like there may be mites. You can use any type of oil such as castor oil, criso shortening, vaseline or coconut oil on the legs once a week and rub it into and under the scales to treat leg mites. If her toes are culrled under even while standing, I would also treat her with some poultry vitamins that include riboflavin,
