I acquired a trio of silkies Monday and I have them in quarantine from the rest of my large flock. I keep debating if their feet scales just look rough or if they may have a mild case of scaly foot mites. I had a huge problem with the pests 15 years ago (toes were lost) and I do not wish to ever have it in my flock ever again! It was very hard to beat! I wish to do a cautionary treatment of their feet and thought to myself "there has to be an easier way that the weeks of vasaline" and I found a 3 day method using gasoline http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2013/03/scaly-leg-mites-in-chickens.html would you recommend this method for birds with feathers on their feet?
