Scaly Leg Mite

Oo-er, doesn’t sound good, does it? Fortunately I don’t have it. Unfortunately one of the chickens does. And it’s one of the flighty ones (harken back to here) so there’s little hope of catching her in the open.

This evening miss and I crept into their run and opened the coop-full of sleepy birdies and grabbed one at random – luckily we got the right one first time! We treated her with a proprietary solution also used on budgies and canaries. It needs a couple of drops painted over the affected area a few times, every other day. We have fun ahead.
