While Business Chicken is on…..vacation, possibly permanently, life goes on. One of the Backup chickens has scaly looking legs, which is probably mites. We decided to clean both of them and dip their legs in oil to suffocate the mites.
For maximum hilarity, the cleaning bucket is popcorn and the oil itself is corn oil. They were curious about the setup.
I captured one and demonstrated proper chicken rotation, based on Rotate Your Owl.
We dunked their little legs in soap water, scrubbed with a toothbrush, and then dunked in corn oil. Hopefully this works.
