I have never had chickens in the winter. During the spring and summer, their legs had smooth scales, almost glossy looking. When the cold winter weather (freezing and below) started, their scales slowly became rougher and dull. I thought that maybe they had scaly leg mites, but when I posted pictures no one else seemed to think so. I have some winter chicks in the shed, and even their legs look dry. I know that my skin gets dry in the winter, I just never really thought that it could happen to my chickens. Questions: • Has anyone else noticed that this happens?? • Do you think it's truly the seasonal changes?
