So I'm pretty sure Jake has scaly leg mites. Maybe one of the hens do too. I used a pesticide given to me from souther states, I can't remember the name of it right now. I put that on once and I've been covering everyones legs with vasoline every night. Jakes legs look like they are missing scales. The are red and irritated looking. One of the hens legs, who I didn't think had mites, appear to be lightening in color. Is vasoline every night too much or am I doing it right? Is it possible that Jake lost his scales on his legs and thats what they are going to look like for now on? They do look a lot better than they did, just missing scales.
