    Any idea what's wrong with his feet? I have been washing them, then covering with Vaseline.

    Definitely Scaly Leg mites. And a pretty severe case of them. In addition to the washing and Vasoline, you may want to try a broad spectrum dewormer.

    Yea, I read it all 4 or 5 times and while bigbird may be pulling our leg, I still would hate to see someone get confused and burn down their coop, or worst..

    chickengeorgeto, I'm not quite sure what to make of your reply. Why would you think I was pulling anyone's leg? I have a problem, and I asked for advice. Was the question I asked not answered correctly? If I knew what was wrong with my chicken, I would have never asked for help in the first place.
