Hey guys
I am looking at getting some indian runner ducks atm... they would probably live with my chooks and I know that the older chooks usually get some scaley leg > which is a pain in the but to treat! So I am wondering if ducks have this problem...

Not that I've noticed.
All my ducks have nice smooth snake-like skin.
They all live with chooks of varying ages.

Interesting question bridgie , I have indian runner ducks and they hang around our chooks who used to have scaly leg ( not anymore ). They never got it though.

It's not that hard to treat really. We used to use vaseline plastered all ovewr their legs..but we live in a wet area so it quickly turned to big clugs of mud on their legs..which worked mind you..but was very messy. We now use WD40. It is very quick and easy to use and no mess!!

Thanks for that

I think I use WD40 or similar... in a spray can anyway...

I have the most probs with the old silkie roosters... seem to get it the worst...
