I recently adopted a new hen (about a year old), who, although she was happy being free range on a huge farm, she was somewhat neglected when it came to her health. I am presently treating her for lice with diotomaceous earth (seemed to work immediately!), but she also has terrible leg mites, and her feet look somewhat deformed (lumps at the joint area of her first toes). I scrubbed her feet with a toothbrush to try to clean the dead stuff out, and I treated them with pure lanolin a week or so ago, but she just started limping and holding her left leg up all the time. So today I actually got in and dug out the lifted scales on her toes and treated them with lanolin again. I also cut her toenails which looked awful to walk on. What else can I do? There is no "black plug" in these deformities which I am told you see when it is bumblefoot, no sign of any skin breakdown anywhere. It just looks really dry, and deformed in areas. I feel terrible for her as she is obviously not comfortable. She is eating and drinking well though, as far as I can tell. If anyone has any advice for me, please help. I just don't know where to go from here. I have pictures but I don't know how to post them here. Can anyone tell me how to do that? Thank you for your time, Kristina.
