Help My chicken has terribly scaly feet and can't walk
Are you familiar with scaly leg mites? If left untreated can cause serious damage. here is a link explaining leg mites.
It sounds like it could be scaly leg mites. Could you post a picture? To treat scaly leg mites, dip the feet in mineral oil or vegetable oil once a day for a week or so. You can put petroleum jelly on the legs, too. If you want, you can use a toothbrush and gently scrub at the scales on the leg, to help remove any crustiness or dead scales.
Thank you, I've just bathed her feet and separated her so she doesn't get pestered by the others are they catching to humans?
