my rooster has red scales on his legs and feet is this normal?
Can you post some pics? A mature roo's legs do turn red which is a sign of maturity.
Like to see a pic, but my BR roosters have quite reddish legs on the side. RIRs can, too.
I can't take a pic because my camera batteries are dead and I can't find the charger but he's a white rock and otherwise super handsome and healthy. And he's 22wks old.
mine has red scales--it's from their spurs rubbing their scales. You might need to trim them!
no his spurs are nothing more than nubs right now and the red runs the whole leg
It's completely normal, unless its not just a reddish wash down the sides, i.e., they seem inflamed/swollen.
I agree with Cyn...at this age is when you really start to notice the legs getting red because they are coming into full maturity. If the scales aren't lifted, I wouldn't worry. Sounds normal to me.
thank you that describes it perfectly a red wash down the side
