Net-Tex Just For Scaly Legs
Scaly Legs is a disease caused by a parasitic mite (cnemidocoptes mutans) that burrows under the scales of the legs or feet and causes great irritation.
This results in a multiplication of the tissue cells and the secretion of serum. The scales are raised, and the legs become thickened and have a rough lumpy appearance. The disease is easily recognised as the mites can be clearly seen (tiny white spherical creatures approximately 0.5mm in diameter in the early stages).
It is highly contagious and affects birds of all ages, although older birds and feathered leg breeds tend to be more susceptible. It is most common in flocks kept on earth or in dry litter runs.
In the early stages it 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 instances death may occur.
