Scaley Mites

Hi there chicken keeping people, I recently discovered on the magic box of buttons, a inexpensive way to treat Scaley Mites, you may even already have the ingredients in your shed, or cupboard.

Simply mix in a small container, one part Turpentine (white spirits) to two parts Linseed Oil (boiled will do, don’t get refined oil it will be pricey), both should  be on sale in any hardware store, then paint on to the hens legs with a small paint brush(or simular), a little will go a long way, so work out your needs, but I don’t suppose it will go off, if kept in a sealed container. Why buy expensive chemical concoctions from a shop , when you can make your own for a fraction of the price at home. Also the individual ingredients will be useful for other projects.
