Someone told me that treating scaly leg mites with petroleum jellly and soaking is cruel. From what I've read, this is the most common treatment, we have done it many times, and I never felt that I was being cruel to the birds. What does everyone else think? I was told to use Permethrine. We have that stuff, but it is SO NASTY, you are supposed to wear a face mask, gloves, and entire protecctive clothing when using it, and I just don't want to!!!! Thoughts?
