    My chicken has what look to be scaly leg, scales have lifted up,but her feet seems to have red dry rashy patch on it. I'm unsure of what to do? i have read on the websites that you can dip there feet in oil ,then put Vaseline or petroleum jelly on there. Is that safe? Any tips on how to get her leg to heal or at least get better. She is a Rhode island red.

    Do an on site search on 'scaly leg mite treatment' - several good threads will appear. Good luck at curing her.
