I recently got 3 Lemon Millefleur Sablepoot Cockerals (beautiful birds), and after recieving them, did a routine check just to make sure there wasn't a really big problem like enteritis or something. Everything seemed fine, and I was considering not putting them in quarantine, but luckily for me, I did anyway. Today, after being very busy, (had them for two days now) I decided to check them properly. After washing some muck off their legs I discovered (in absolute horror) that they had scaly leg. And what's more, the breeder hadn't even bothered to tell me! Now that would be ok if I went and chose them, but on a whim I let him come out to MY HOUSE and he brought them with him! I AM SO MAD! Anyway, after the anger had passed, I realised that they werent actually scratching at the legs, and only the smallest one (I think this is attributed to bullying though) looks a bit off. I also read somewhere that they only shed the scales on the moult after they get rid of the mites.....is this true? because if so there might be nothing to worry about. Also, are there any cheap, DIY cures that actually work that I could use? I don't want to hurt my boys, but it would be good if I didn't have to go out on a three hour hunt for mite killer on Christmas Eve. Anyway, any help would be appreciated, and thanks for bothering to help some poor cocks in distress!
