    I know I something here about scaly mites, but my roosters feet don't appear to have mites. He has hard ridges on his toes and his nails are getting long and deformed. His feet are scaly and flaky, but it's all white and scaly, not brown like mites. Any ideas?

    The chicken is an Americana hybrid. His feet have feathers on them, and recently the feathers have begun to grow badly and his feet are staring to bleed. I hadn't noticed his feet because my husband takes care of them. But today I saw him limping and when I picked him up his feet were pretty bad.
