I have a featherfooted bantam that I think has scaly leg mites. I found a picture of what it looked like on your website (only one I have found!). He has had trembling and weakness in legs and lose of balance for about 2 weeks. Other than these symptoms, he has been fine. He eats and pecks around, crows and chirps. He just doesn't run around like he used to. No one seemed to know what was wrong. I've been putting antibiotics and garlic oil in his water the last couple of days until I found this site this evening. I tried the vinegar and Murphys oil soap soak and applied vaseline tonite. His legs looked pretty raw on his upper shanks. Should I keep this treatment up or get the ivomec? Have I let it go to long? I have 17 hens and none of them have any lameness although I haven't checked all of their legs yet for signs of the mites. I plan on doing that tomorrow nite. Also does anyone have any suggestions for cleaning the coop without using harmful insecticides? I am so glad that I have found this site! This is the first year we have ever had chickens and they have been doing so well. Thanks for any help!! Its been very frustrating!!
