    I cant help you here but like applefalls says, post a pic if you can. More info is need for other members to get a better idea. Such as age of chicken, what you feed, free range, bedding in coop, etc. etc. Good luck and I hope you can treat it
    just a thought, have you looked on the bottom of the chicken's foot to make sure it is not swollen or maybe has bumble foot? It could cause an infection sending redness up the legs.

    My chickens have been laying for 1-1 1/2 months. I am now starting to see brown "things" floating around in the whites of some of the brown eggs. Can anyone tell me what these are? I don't have a rooster. Also, it's not a blood spot. I have those too, but they don't bother me as much as the floating things.

    You may be able to search it and get better info.
