I'm wondering if my bantam brahma has leg mites? She is 4.5 years old. [/IMG]
Yes, that looks like scaly leg mites. The way I treated, was to soak the feet and legs in a warm epsom salt bath and used a toothbrush to gently brush the feet and legs while standing in the water. This will loosen the "gunk". Then I dip the legs in olive oil allowing enough time to soak in really good. Repeat daily for atleast a week if not longer. Others use different methods such as vaseline or Ivermectin. You will also need to treat the coop and roosting bars, remove all liter and replace.
I was afraid of that, thank you so much for the reply.
