    So I have a Bantam Wyandotte show hen. I'm concerned that she might have Scaley Leg mites. I'm taking her to a show next weekend, and I do not want to give any other chickens any if she does have them. If she does have them then I'm sure they are the beginnings of it.

    It's really tough to tell, the pictures are rather small. From what I can see, it doesn't look like the scaly leg mites I've seen...perhaps someone else can be of more help. Maybe try to post some larger pictures and we'll be able to help more. :)

    Sorry bout that... I took them with my phone and had to upload them to the computer and they turned out small. I'll do my best to enlarge them as soon as I get the chance.

    Just dip them in vegetable oil just in case. It will smother the mites if there are any.
