Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any idea what might be causing this. I have a Marans rooster which I found today with bright red blood on the tops of his feet/lower ankle area. On the top of foot, front of leg only. Like someone swabbed red paint onto him with a cotton ball. Scales in the area appear slightly raised, but no discernable injury. No blood on spurs, and other birds seem unharmed - normal. Have been treating for scaly leg mite, but he has never shown any physical symptoms of that. I can' really tell where the blood is coming from - Maybe inbetween the scales? Any ideas? If it's scaly leg mite, should I treat with a dewormer? I have seen that some use ivermectin, some said frontline (for birds? cats?) Please advise type, what animal and dose for bantam/standards. I have both and would want to do all at once. If not leg mites, what could it be? Thanks for your help.
