Has it happened? Do you want to prevent it from happening?

Chicken has it. However, I've been down to my chicken lady and she has given me hope in treating it. We'll see how it goes :)

I had a bad case on a chicken I was given, on both feet. I cleaned it as best I could without cutting, then used betadine and then put a small bit of rubber glove over the foot (bits of fingers over the toes, bit of palm under footpad) and tied it with surgical tape. Kept her in a small cage on towels for some days. Changed Betadine and gloves every second day.
It came good and the chicken went berserk, scratching up about half an acre of paddock (with the others all watching in astonishment) before going normal again.
