    I'm not sure what that is. Have you tried soaking it's feet in Epsom Salts?

    I was actually hoping you would get some responses :( I can tell you what I've read...

    You smear the legs with vaseline or bag balm. Really thick. Keep repeating until they are better. I've also read, but can't find it again, that you can use ivermectin pour on...a couple drops on the back of the neck and that will help. I can't find the thread for that. I have a young roo, I've been trying to treat and was hoping this thread would give me some more suggestions. I haven't tried the pour on since I can't find the thread but I think I will use it tomorrow anyway. The bag balm just isn't getting the job done!!

    Red kote, wd 40, scaralet oil. they all do the job.
     
  7. might be something different but isnt it BlueKote? I dont know what RedKote is, but Blue Kote works wonders

    same thing but red kote works better. The main thing is that it has the scaralet oil in it to get rid of it. The spray Wd 40 for rust works well too. My brother had chickens like that in the pass and thats what we use. Not just us but the people who see this right away will tell you the same thing I tell you.
     
  10. i figured it was at least similar, maybe i need red kote XD

    hope your baby feels better [​IMG]
