I have so many questions about this chicken. She’s a buff Orpington that’s about 19 weeks old. And her feet are massive!!! Which has me concerned that she’s actually a rooster. Now I’ve noticed that they have been getting darker and the scales look like this. Do I need to soak her feet in Epsom salts? I have four other chickens, should I treat them as well?

It’s normal, she’s just a large footed hen. Orps tend to have that. Legs don’t really tell gender, it’s the comb and feathers (feather sexing is 12-14 weeks).
