Nettex Anti Feather Pecking Spray 500ml
Cannibalism & feather pecking are complex behavioural problems found in poultry & game birds worldwide. The causes include tensoynovitis & other diseases that reduce mobility along with boredom & stress. Symptoms include pecking at the feet (especially young chicks), the vents (adult layers & turkey poults 8-12 days old), the head, face & wings. It may also include feather pulling. Cannibalism & feather pecking may lead to wounding leaving the skin open to bacterial infection. In severe cases this leads to a loss of blood & results in generalised anaemia.
Anti-Feather Pecking Spray – 2-in-1 Benefits
Benefit 1: Anti-Feather Pecking spray first works by preventing biting, plucking and cannibalism. It contains a foul tasting substance with a very strong odour. This foul taste is so strong that most biting or plucking will cease after one or two days.
Benefit 2: Anti-bacterial agents have been incorporated for minor skin abrasions and disinfect the afflicted sites immediately. These agents also help minimise the spread of bacterial infection - allowing the healing process to start.
