So I’m pretty sure a couple of my girls have scaly leg mites. I’ve treated Lucky a couple times with Aquaphor, Vaseline, and previously I dipped her legs in canola oil. I’ve tried coconut oil, too. I don’t think any of those measures are helping. However, doing the soak and scrub is not likely to happen anytime soon. So today I picked up both bag balm and nu stock. The nu stock sounds actually kind of harsh, which might be great for killing mites, but is that really actually safe for a chicken? Which slather-it-on ointment is most effective? I’m not interested in the gasoline method or insecticides at this time. Thanks.
