Here is what worked for my chickens

De-Solv-it.

A multi-purpose cleaner sticky spot and stain remover.
Natural Citrus Base.

The mites get under the scales, and use skin to build caverns for themselves. If you pick up a piece that has fallen off then look under a microscope you will see the caverns and the mites in them.

I sprayed the perches, and mite infested legs once a week for 4 weeks. The encrustations dissolved along with the insects. Encrustations fell off. New skin and scales appeared.

Never had a problem with mites since. Happy chooks.

Now that is a home remedy that really worked. I had tried everything under the sun.
