Hello, I'm desperate for help. Our rooster, Sarko, was diagnosed with scabby leg mites. He was treated for this for the past month and is still healing after a lot of visits to the vet, antibiotics, creams, vitamins and finally, descaling his legs by the vet and he seems to be getting better in this area. The mystery seems to be that the mites or some sort of skin affliction as transferred to his face. The swelling has gone from tender spots to hardened skin and scab. His comb and waddles are fine, but this hardened skin on his cheeks has expanded over his entire face, slowly shutting his eyes until he has minute pin hole sized openings for him to see out of. I am cleaning the eyes three times a day, and putting terramycine to keep the eyes and skin moist. In the morning, it seems worse and throughout the day seems to be slightly better and he's able to see enough to eat and drink. The vet is completely stumped about what could be causing this or if it will get better. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciate. I don't want the little guy to suffer, but if he can't see, he can't eat. Our hens, which are completely different breeds, have no problems.
