Alright, so I have a hen that definitely suffered from scaly leg mites. I purchased something that will cure that specific problem, however, my big issue is the leftover crud on her leg/feet, and I don't just mean the scales, I mean entire chunks of leftover crud attached to her feet. I tried soaking her feet and then peeling some of it off, and underneath is red and spongy, kind of like dried-ish blood. It almost makes me feel like I'm picking a scab or something.
Is there a better way to do this or should I just keep cutting/picking/peeling it?
