Lord Firestar has dirty feet. I don't know how he does it but they are caked in poop! The answer: foot baths and cage cleaning. I filled an empty sour cream container with warm water and stuck his feet into said container. Three changes later, his feet were looking better until "cock-a-doodle-doo!" when I had to put him back in his cage. Next time (after I publish this) I will add a little soap. THEN I will clean that cage! How does he mess it up so quickly?
I love him anyway, he is the nicest rooster I've ever met.
