    it sounds like scaly leg mites.mine had them a few months ago and i treted them by applying pertrolem gelly to there legs for a week and you should start seeing some improvment.

    Does anyone have a picture? I have some hens with really thick and kinda scaly looking legs, and was wondering about that myself. I thought maybe they were just older hens or something like that.
