    This is my supposedly " black austrolorp bantam " hen. That i have had for at least a year and a half, but I've got my doubts about her now. One reason is the golden colour coming in on her neck which isn't really standard to black austrolorp? And that she seems to small and skinny to be austrolorp. So that's where I think she's not black austrolorp bantam but she might be OEGB? What do you guys think? All input is welcome! [​IMG]

    Thanks guys very much appreciated :) and I've been trying to get rid of that darn scaly leg mite but it always comes back once the scales seem to get better. I've been using the Vaseline at night method because it is very convenient for me and it seems to work. But as soon as I stop, just for a few days it seems to come back.

    USE VETRX!!!! its a bit on the pricey side but works a hell (pardon my lango [​IMG]) of a lot better than anything and i mean anything i have used and tried (cooking oil with seven dust and without, Vaseline with seven dust and without, soaking them in dips...the vetRX works with a few applications depending on how bad the legs are and they do not look that bad so i would say withing 2-4 applications you should see improvement)

    i got this roo from an auction his whole legs were covered like this (the dark crusted raised part) this was after 3 treatments with vetRX
