sheesh. I've been working on this for a couple of months with some mutt feathered leg banties. Have tried vaseline, bag balm, veterx, camphophenique - saw some good improvement, but still huge scaly lifted scales. Repeated every 3-5 days or so. It is too cold to be able to give them a good scrub with a toothbrush as suggested. Will do when it warms up,if it ever does. today went out and dunked each chicken's leg into a jar of vegetable oil. I've rubbed the roosts with the oil too, and two weeks ago I completely emptied the coop, cleaned, and replaced bedding with fresh hay (smells so good in there). Will those huge yucky scales ever disappear? Any ideas? I know you can use sevin, but I'm pretty wary of poisons and non-edible stuff like W40 or kerosene.
