Help! Was looking at other threads about scaly leg mites! There are so many ways to treat! I am looking for the best solution! I have sprayed with WD40 - works but worry about toxicity. I've dipped legs in cooking oil and that was a big mess, but it worked.. I am now trying canola cooking spray because of recurring mite problem. Not as bad, but still have a few mites showing up on the chicken's legs. Didn't read this anywhere just decided to try spraying the perches with a home defense bug spray about 4 or 5 months ago hoping it would be okay and not harm chickens - didn't seem to bother the chickens and is suppose to last several months... I was just recently told by someone that spraying listerine on chicken's legs works.. Does anyone know about treating with listerine and whether or not you have to keep reapplying or will one or two applications work? Does it burn??? Now I am reading about treating with ivomec - I give my dogs 0.1cc's per 10 pounds orally, but chickens?? I will not lie, I am looking for the safest and most efficient way to treat, but also the one that is the least amount of trouble!!! Any expert advice? Thanks!!!
