    my roosters scales on his feet are lifting and have a lot of dark color under them like dirt under nails... but they just keep getting worse?? i thought maybe they would fall off and grow new... but im wondering if this is an illness?? does anyone have any clue???

    Welcome to Backyards!! I had the samething happen and was told it was mites. Also was told to apply vasaline on the legs daily for a few days and the mites will die. I did and it worked. Basicly anything that is thick and will stick to the leg will work. I already had some vasaline so that's what I used. Hope everything works out for you!!
