Scaly leg mites are a insect that burrows into your chickens scales on their legs. The Mites form little tunnels in the scales of your birds legs and feet leaving the scales in an upright, sticking out position. To treat this problem you can…
- in warm water
- Dry the feet with a dry cloth to remove the damaged and dead scales.
- Then wipe olive oil or vegetable oil into the legs and leave for a muinets then wipe off.
- Finally coat the legs in vasaline.
It is best to repeat this process every week until the issue is resolved.
