They look dry to me.View attachment 2348772 View attachment 2348773 View attachment 2348772 View attachment 2348773 View attachment 2348774 View attachment 2348775 Hello, I am currently in Corrales New Mexico where it is very dry. My chickens have sand in their coop as bedding. I’m noticing that their feet are really dry and I’m not sure if it’s just the sand and weather or if I should be worried about scaley leg mites. I’m posting my rooster and my Americaunas feet if they are just try should I try to put something in them to help? Thank you!
Wash the legs. Allow to air dry or pat them dry. Get yourself some Vaseline. Message the vaseline on everyone's legs and feet. Its a spa day everyday until cured.
Check them all over for mites and lice.
If they do have either, treat with Permethrin 10% dust or spray. You can get it from Tractor supply or one line. Read directions for mixing or use.
Good idea!I’m thinking I’ll wipe them down tomorrow and add the Vaseline at night so they don’t get dirt stuck to their feet.
