Hi, When I had my chickens vetted, the vet said that she was concerned my Langshan might be developing scaly leg mites (but she wasn't sure because she also had a lot of new feather growth coming in). I noticed tonight that some of the scales on her feet were indeed raised (like I could poke a fingernail underneath them if I wanted to). Nothing dry, ugly looking, or extremely raised though. Does that sound diagnostic? If so, I think I should probably try the mineral oil treatment (If it works, I would rather use mineral oil than an insecticide). Should I do the other two as well? How do I apply the oil to give it the best chance of working (thick coating/immersion)? Should I change their bedding as well? And how long should I give it before checking the scales again?
