    two of my chooks have scaley feet/legs , I`ve bathed them and socked them in olive oil but I`ve just noticed they have brown / light red mites on them , both refuse to leave their nesting box unless I pick them up ! do I need to put something on their bodies/feathers too and what should I clean the chook house out with ,it has a brick floor.........? thanks
