I have a Plymouth Rock who is sitting on eggs, only 1 week in, she has bad mites/scaly leg, can I treat her while she is nesting? If so what is the best treatment? Is there an internal medicine available?
I would suggest to dip her legs in Olive oil 3 times a week until mites are gone. Take out all the bedding in all the nesting boxes and sprinkle each nesting box well with Permetherin powder. Then freshen all the nesting boxes with a layer of bedding. Transfer the hen and eggs to another nesting site. Then sprinkle the nesting box she was originally in with extra Permetherin.
