    i noticed one of my chicken had scaly leg mite a few months ago and i have been rubbing vetRX on it each night as she goes to roost. she now has a new roost so the scaly leg mites cant still be on her roost. the scales are a bit bent up but they seem to have gotten better. could she still have the scaly leg mites or will the scales just allways stay up and should i still treat it each night. the mites were never a extremely bad problem and it never looked like those bad cases of scales that are sticking up in pictures. i will try to take a picture of the legs in a few hours.
