Scaly Legs The Problem
Scaly Legs is caused by a parasitic mite (known as Cnemidoptes mutans) that burrows under the scales of the legs or feet, where it causes great irritation.
This results in a miltiplication of the tissue cells and the scretion of serum. The scales are raised, and the legs become thickened and have a roughlumpy appearance. The disease is easily recognised as the mites are evident as tiny white spherical creatures, (approximately 0.5mm in diameter in the early stages). It is highly contagious and affects birds ofall ages, although older birds and feathered leg breeds tend to be more susceptible. It is most common in flocks kept on earht or in dry litter runs.
In the early stages Scaly Legs would appear to cause little inconvenience, but should it be neglected the birds lose condition, go lame and have difficulty in perching. In the worst instance mortality may occur.
