    Have been treating daily alternating with WD40 and spray Canola oil. Beautiful smooth legs are emerging! Scales are coming off! Will keep on for at least another week or until all looks well. One hen had extensive damage that I thought was due to frostbite over the winter, but now with this treatment stuff is falling off and she is walking more comfortably. She will never get her toes back but if she is comfortable that is great.
    How stupid was I, I thought chickens leg always looked ugly. Lesson learned... I will never let this happen again...
