Net-tex Anti-feather Pecking Spray will help stop biting, cannibalism and feather pecking amongst chickens, which is a complex multifactorial behavioural problem of poultry and game birds worldwide. It can lead to other diseases affecting mobility if not tackled but we do advise you consider the causes of the feather-pecking.
It contains a foul-tasting substance with a very strong odour, it is so foul-tasting is should prevent plucking within 1-2 days. Anti-Feather Pecking Spray also includes anti-bacterial agents that will disinfect minor skin abrasions to help minimise the spread of bacterial infections and support the healing process.
Symptoms include: Pecking at leg feathers, back and vents by other aggressive hens (usually the ‘top hen’). Not suitable for young birds up to 4 weeks old.
Cannibalism and feather pecking may lead to skin wounding leaving it open to bacterial infection. In severe cases this will lead to a loss of blood resulting in generalised anaemia. Use Net-Tex Anti Feather Pecking Spray to counteract this antisocial behaviour in your flock.
Spray on to affected areas of birds where feathers have been removed as necessary. Use on feathers should be avoided. Use outdoors only. Read instructions carefully.
