    My question is: there still seems to be a grainy like substance still on his feet. Should I use some WD40 and clean them off and do another week of the Vaseline and 7 dust. By the way these are the feet of a polish rooster.

    Thanks

    Make sure you put in the title what you need, someone will answer if they know there is a question.

    I am a COMPLETE newbie so I have no experience, but another thread had this in it and the knowlegable folks said to soak in warm water and rub with a brush to remove dried scales. Type in Scaly leg mites and see if you can find the directions.

    I've read you can spray wd 40 and get a good stiff brush and brush the legs to work it up under the scales. His legs look so much better, I would do the wd 40 between vaseline and sevin applications.

    The last 2 posts were on the right track... WD40 everyday for 2 weeks and warm water soaks with a soft bristle tooth brush. They are looking so much better already!

    W e use Pam spray on their feet to get rid of scaly leg.It works just as good,but the chickens also wont get sick by touching wd40.I of course am a stanch fan of wd40 and duct tape and wont bash em if I didn't have a good reason,but spray Pam is great.Get the garlic kind.

    Otherwise good job.Now lets take care of them spurs [​IMG]

    Quote:I tried numerous methods and nothing really worked but I agree....."Pam spray" works miracles on their feet and so easy to use!
