    HI everyone does this look like scaley leg mites all the other chickens he is in with feet look normal. I've been treating them with olive oil so far they have had 4 treatments his feet where larger then what they are in the pictures.

    If all other birds feet are normal can i stop treating them and just treat this one that does have it or is it best to continue treatment for all of them?
