My hens have a case of scaly leg mites so we decided to treat it naturally by scrubbing their feet w/white vinegar then slathering it w/coconut oil. after a few days, we noticed a little bit of red coming in on their scales. what is it? Is it an allergic reaction?
(I will post pictures when I can)

You souldn't scrub the legs, It's very easy to break scales off.
Vaseline mixed with Betadine gel works well. Coat legs well every night for a week.
Do the same again two weeks later,
