Do your chickens have chalky crusts on their paws?

 

This is due to the small scaly leg mite, which lives and reproduces itself under the scales of the feet of mainly older chickens.

Especially older chickens suffer from it.

Lubricating the legs with Padsect can quickly solve this.

Preventative use of Stopmite is advised to keep this parasite out of your coop.
