    Some of my silkie chickens have rough, scaley toes. Also, their toenails are very long. What is wrong with their feet??

    Do you have a picture? Are they chicks or adults? Have you already ruled out scaley leg mites for the roughness? Are any of the scales lifted? Their toe nails might need a trimming or maybe they need more opportunities to scratch around to wear down the nails.

    You might want to post this in forum for emergencies / diseases/ injuries / cure forum to get better advice.
