    Hi my chickens have scaly leg mite.

    I washed and put Vaseline on their legs last night but this morning they have taken it all of there legs so I don't know what to do now?

    I use mineral oil or baby oil two times a week until I start seeing improvement. Then once a week until cured. I put the oil in a plastic jar that is tall enough to get the foot and leg in right up to where the feathers start.

    The oil suffocates the mites.

    I think vasaline is too messy.
