Very Effective Organic Treatment for Poultry Scaly Leg Mite.
This treatment is totally organic. A mixture of Cotton Seed Oil and Eucalyptus.
Instructions: Spray oil on legs, avoiding the feathers. Saturate the affected areas. "Scaly Leg Spray" works by suffocation. A good Poultry Leg Spray should be applied twice a week (every 4 to 6 days) to the feet and legs for four treatments. Cleanliness and sanitary measures around the chicken coop are in order because the mites can live for long periods in cracks and crevices without feed and water.
Do Your Chickens Have Scaly Leg Mite?
Scaly legs on chickens are caused by a parasitic mite (Knemidocoptes mutans) that burrow under the scales on the chicken's legs. The damaged tissue weeps, which is what these mites feed on.
Signs and Symptoms
Repeat application is recommended. You should treat all of your birds even if only one bird has scaly legs, as scaly leg mite is very contagious and it is highly likely that all of your birds will have the mite.
Scaly foot is a bird ailment that is common among caged birds and also affects many other bird species. It is caused by mites in the genus Knemidocoptes which burrow into the bird's flesh. The tunnels made by the mites within the skin cause dermatitis and scaly lesions. Scaly face is caused by the same mite responsible for scaly foot and other related mites cause depluming. The condition is transmitted from one bird to another by direct prolonged contact.

Scaly Leg Spray 500ml
Unfortunately we had to pour the spray into a container and apply using our hands onto the chickens legs as the sprayer itself doesn’t work and clogs due to the viscosity of the liquid. Not sure if product working yet as too early to tell but hoping so...
