I noticed my broody hen had scaley leg mites. It was hard to get a look before because she was so broody, pecking at us when wee tried to touch her- the protective type. Worried she would pass it to her chicks in the future I thought it best to treat her: I cleaned out her makeshift broody house (a contractable tractor put together with scrap) I treated the area with diatamaceous earth, put down new bedding and sprayed orange peel vinegar on the wood. I rubbed vicks on her legs twice now in 2 days and dipped them in olive oil. She was off the nest when I got up this morning so I chose that time to clean etc, I've put her back and she won't settle back down. I've reduced the area she has for scratching in the hope she will go back on, if you have any advice I would be so appreciative. Is this anything I should be worried about? I have 10 pedigree eggs of different varieties arriving today.
