    Have a rooster "Barney" who has a growth starting on both feet. When I picked him up to look at it...The bottom of his feet are ok but the front at the bottom of his legs...at the top of his feet have a scaley looking white crusty growth on them... He is limping a little. But gets on roost just fine. He still takes care of business with the girls. Any Ideas??? All of the hens are ok..Advice!!!!!! Please!!!!!.
    Thanks

    Sounds like scaly leg mites. Purchase Nu-Stock and put it on his legs. Put it on his roost as well.
