In the Brooder
- Jan 11, 2016
I'm pretty sure one of my chickens has scaly-leg mites. I bought her full grown and her legs looked that way since I've bought her. I'll be honest, I'm new and just thought her legs looked like that due to her breed and didn't think anything of it. She moved around fine and there were no issues for about 6 months. Well, now she can barely walk and her legs seem seized up (happened within days). As I was researching what could be wrong with her, I came across scaly-leg mites and it hit me that she's had those all along. I know how to get rid of them now through the different remedies. My question is, is it too late? Will she recover once they're gone or is she permanently lame now?
