Freshly Laid Egg

Freshly Laid Egg (1/19)



  1. Hi, I have a silky bantam female, aged about 5 who has a bad case of scaly leg, to the point that it became lame in one leg. Two other silky bantams were affected but mildly. We looked up advice on the british hen welfare trust website and applied swarfega. This hen's leg was I think toodelicate and although we were as gentle as we could, it later bled and we didn't repeat the exercise. We then gave all 3 hens ivermectin drops once a week for 3 weeks according to the instructions. The mildly affected hens seem fine and are acting normally. The badly affected hen is smelling and I think has got an infection in the leg, though the smelling has improved so it might be over the worst now. Is it possible for us to get hold of antibiotics for it ?
