So, a few days ago I posted about a red sex links with potential leg mites. Well, I put Vaseline on her legs for 3-4 days. Her legs definitely didn't get worst, but there was not a whole lot of improvement. Last night, my mom decided that she would try rubbing yeast cream into her legs. She thought that this chicken had a yeast infection due to the poor conditions of her former coop. Well, it was a little over 12 hours ago, and I checked her legs this morning. In that little time, there has already been a big improvement. The scales are starting to smooth down, instead of lifting up. The discolouration is fading. I'm not sure what to think, all I Know for sure, is that I will be treating her with yeast cream again, and again, until she is better.
So, the big question I have is, did I stumble upon another way to treat leg mites, or did she have a yeast infection?
Thanks so much for the advice, help, and opinions, it was greatly appreciated.
