Hi. One of my hens has swollen feet and ankles. I'd say her claws are more than twice their usual size. She has yellow skin normally but the sides are now pink and they feel very warm. She has stopped roosting, preferring to sleep in the nesting box so obviously she is feeling pain. At the moment she is in the tail end of her molt and we have been battling against red mite all summer. I noticed a few days ago that her skin had gone reddish with what looked like little red veins visible, had the 'squits' and hadn't been eating much either so had lost condition. i took her to the vet who said it was a reaction to the mites and gave me medication to treat her and the other hens too. She also gave her an antibiotic injection just to cover all bases. Nothing much has changed since then apart from her feet becoming more swollen, although for a couple of days her poo was less watery but is now just as bad again. The vet didn't really have anything to say about her feet. I know in humans water retention can be due to heart and kidney problems. I once had a hen that died from kidney cancer, which is apparently quite common in hens but she didn't have any of these symptoms. Has anyone come across this before?
