It’s March and snow has arrived in North Yorkshire again. Not a huge amount, but enough to turn things white. It all looks very pretty of course, and my son wants to go sledging (sorry Charlie, it’s no way deep enough for that). But my thoughts are about my chickens and how to make sure they are warm enough.

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.
