My 6 month old white cochin(bantam) have raised scales on the bottom of it's feet. The 3 photos above is his left foot's photo. There are two areas of concern. Both of them contains raised scales, and they can best be seen on the first photo. The grey or black color on it, is actually chicken poop. I don't have enough time to clean it good enough to make it's color appear to be like his scale. The only unusual thing that I see, is that the scales are raised, but the tissue beneath them, is not inflamed, or hard. My other chicken have something similar to that, but it is smaller, and instead of pointing towards the earth if the chicken is standing, it is pointing to the side. The poop that sticks in there, are harder to take out than the poop that are stuck on other scales. Like his left foot, his right foot also has raised scales. I think the black area are actually poop. However, one of the raised scale, is hard and it is at least 3 times wider than the other raised scale. Also, the color is like the color of honey. It looks like, that some of the tissue is raised. Should I try to take it(the raised scale on the left and right foot) out?
