Cronkshaw Fold Farm, The case of the scaly hen feet, 27.7.16 

Last Friday a local nursery dropped off some hens to be looked after over the summer. This included a giant hen and one with scaly feet…

On 26th July we isolated the hen as its feet appear to require treatment, so it’s a precaution to avoid anything from spreading.

After researching, I believe it has ‘scaly leg mites’ 

 

I will make a plan to treat it with surgical spirit and vaseline starting this week.
