Recently I noticed that 5 of my 22 girls appeared to have scaly leg mite.
None of my flock has had this before, so I decided to act quickly to prevent them from all becoming infected with this nasty, irritating little mite. They get under the scales of a chicken’s legs and gorge away, which has the result of lifting the scales away from the leg. They can also attack the wattle, where you may see little black dots and in some cases spots of blood.
