    my chickens are coming out of a molt and all but one of the girls have recovered. But my roo is still working on feathering and I noticed today the webs between his toes and the pads are very red. It doesnt seem to be hurting him at all and the girls feet are fine. Dont know if its related to the molt but thought I would mention it. Any ideas?

    Can you post a picture? I was worried about the red skin on the back of my rooster's legs until I noticed he had bilateral stripes (sort of like racing stripes) going up the sides of his legs, too. Then I checked with other people who have roosters of that breed and they all had this kind of marking.

    my camera is down an my son cant find the card for his. This is a new development, and only on the web between the toes and the pads.

    I have an Aracana that has the same thing. He has had this since he has been here with us now about 4 months and he is two. Someone told me that it is his hormones?
