    The scaly leg mights are evil little creatures they go under your chickens skin and lay the eggs and they also fed on your chickens blood. To get rid of them you can smother their feet in petroleum jelly then spray mineral oil on top of it. You should treat your coop every 2 weeks and once the might is gone use might powder on your coop. Finally keep spraying them with scaly leg might protector.
