Hello there, After just reading another post here about leg scale mites, I am sure one of my quail has this issue. He has been favoring one leg for a few weeks and I can see that his scales are raised. The bottoms of his feet look crusty. So as suggested in another post, I got some vasiline, and rubbed his legs down and the bottoms of his feet. It is not on all that thick, so my question is, how thick to you apply it, and then do I need to reapply it later today, tomorrow or what? How long does it take to kill these mites thru suffocation? I checked the rest of the flock and nobody else seems to be suffering from mites. Thanks for any info.
