I'm sure this has been a topic on here many times..Lol but I'm having a big problem with scaly leg mite in my flock. My chickens have been in contact with a relative's flock that has pretty bad cases of it and a few of mine have just started it. With individual cases, I tried just putting vasoline on their legs and it works very well but a few of my chickens are skittish and one rooster is a little well..touchyso I don't wanna be grabbing on those specifically. Is there something I can put in the bedding or spray on the chickens without picking them up that could treat and possible take care of the mites? What is the best? I went to TSC and even the part of Wal-Mart where they have some stuff for chickens and there seems to be a lot of options, but I was wondering if there's any really good treatments specifically. Thank you!
