    One of my chickens has a very interesting foot,
    the left one is fine, but the right one is bumpy, the scales are really big and kinda misshapen,
    it has little nobs all over it.

    I'm just wondering if this is something wrong or if its fine.

    Thanks!

    It sounds as if your chicken may have scaly leg mites

    Hi,

    I too need your help on my 3 week old chick, she is one of four who is not doing very good. She hardly walks, maybe two steps at the most, and very wobbly at that. yesterday I separated her from the flock, I gave her some Electrolytes, and added some almonds to her food. But still having issues walking. I am worried, poor thing. I need suggestions from my chicken family.

    Sincerely,

    Noah
