Miss Lovely (Chicken) Legs
« on: January 26, 2014, 13:39 »
I inherited Josephine (silkie chicken) with the most awful scaley legs.  I have treated them with various things over a number of months (thanks for all the top tips off the Hen House!) and had been waiting for the scales to shed but I think there was such a build up of scales that this didn't seem to be happening.  They haven't been bothering her and none of the other hens have caught it (I treated them as well) but my new year's resolution was to help her be a contender for Miss Lovely Chicken Legs 2014!   :blush:

So after nearly 4 weeks of applying cream every other day, the scales are starting to drop off and we are finally starting to see blue skin! I have tried all sorts of things but have found Johnsons scaley leg cream has been the easiest to apply as it is gloopy enough to massage into and under the scales but not so sticky that much dirt/mud sticks to them afterwards.  I think Josephine quite likes the gentle foot massage and bizarrely it seems to have been quite good for my nails!   :D
