A quick and effective two-pronged treatment for feather peaking
Cannibalism and feather pecking are complex behavioural problems found in both poultry and game birds worldwide. It can affect any birds in small backyard flocks through to the large commercial flocks. One day all is fine in the pen then the next time you look it has started. There are many reasons for it happening but some of the main reasons are overcrowding, boredom, stress, pecking order, poor quality feed and disease. If it happens in your flock you need to move fast and treat birds and if necessary remove wounded birds. Symptoms include pecking at the feet (usually very young chicks) and the vents, tails, wings and sometimes the head and necks of young and mature birds. It can also include feather pulling. Cannibalism and feather peaking may lead to wounding leaving the skin open to bacterial infection. In severe cases, this leads to the loss of blood and leads to general anaemia. If the feather pecking and cannibalism is not caught in time birds can be almost eaten alive and sometimes 'gutted' if the wounds start around the tail and vent. If you find it in your flock act quickly The Net-tex Anti Feather-Pecking Spray is effective in two ways.
Most of us that keep poultry will find this a very useful spray as feather-pecking can be a real problem at times in flocks. Available in a 250ml and a 500ml spray bottle.
Regularly purchase items for our backyard chickens. Literally a 'one stop shop' with great delivery and service. The anti-pecking spray is working a treat!
We are very happy with this product. We wish we had heard about it sooner, because although the older girls are now not pecking the younger girls, they have gotten into the habit of chasing and the young girls, running. We are sure it will calm down once they realise that they are not going to get plucked. Just a point - got some kick-back spray into my face and even I don't want to peck at the chickens - LOL.
