Any ideas how to get chicken legs looking good after mild scaly leg mites are under control?
Is time the only way or is there some wonder chicken moisturizer to improve the raised scales?
I haven't had experience treating bantams but was gifted some huge Ausralorp roos with severe scaley mites a few years back. I treated them with sheep ivomec orally & soaked the legs quite often with mineral oil ,but think it was time that finally healed them after I killed their parasites. I have also used Ovitrol-dog/horse product off label sparingly on adult birds only that aren't in contact with chicks or laying-with excellent results without oiling the legs. Do Not use Ovitrol on chicks as it will kill them as I sprayed a free range hen & her chicks all died fast. If you use Ovitrol on adult bantams,Just a brief puff under each wing. I also have 13 Pyncheons,mostly chicks . I would love to see pics of yours if you have any to post.
