    I just wanted to let you all know that I treated Jane's scaley leg mites with Bag Balm. We treated her twice the first week, just rubbed the balm on her legs, from her toenails all the way up to her feathers. We treated her again a week later. The next week I treated all four girls. About 2 or so weeks later we gave Jane her final treatment.

    She looks great, and none of the other girls have gotten mites.

    Thanks for your help!

    This great news and thanks for letting us know.
    Have you been able to treat the coop to prevent recurrance?
