    Some of my hens get scaley leg mites while others don't ever get infested. Two hens, in particular, that I had for years were a Buff Orpington and a Black Australorp that never seemed to be have them, though all the rest did. They were treated with the others as a preventative.
    My question is, what breeds in your flock seem to be resistant to leg mites? Thanks in advance for sharing.
