Nu-Stock or gas a vaseline treatments. The gas and vaseline treatment cured my birds in 4 days, can;t get better than that. You just have to be careful with the gas (obviously lol). Not that you're all that new but

What was best & safest for us was to fill a plastic bin w warm water and if you have eposom salt add it. The water level should be high enough to cover the whole leg and reach the bottom of the chicken. Put affected birds in it (avoid overcrowding) and cover w a screen. They'll protest at first but the water soothes the itching & they'll stand for a while in it. Watch them so they don't drown but leave them in as long as possible.
Repeat this as necessary. After soaking use a toothbrush w coconut oil to scrub the scales reaching under the scales.
Hope this helps.
