Barrier Scaly Leg Spray
Barrier Scaly Leg Spray is a wonderful deterrent against scaly leg mite for Birds and Poultry including Chickens, Turkeys, Game and Cage Birds.
Deterrent Against Scaly Leg Mite : We recommend you use Scaly Leg Spray as a deterrent as well as to treat an existing problem. Scaly Leg Mite affects birds of all ages, although older birds and feathered leg breeds tend to be more susceptible. Affected birds should be isolated and all housing cleared and thoroughly cleaned.
Prevention : Scaly Prevention is always the best option. Check for the tell tail signs of crusty, white deposits on enlarged, rough and lumpy legs where the scales have become raised. Living entirely on the bird Scaly Leg Mite cause pain and intense irritation for the bird as they burrow under the scales and into the skin of the legs and sometimes the comb and wattles. In severe cases of infestation the birds find it difficult to walk, may lose a toe and become severely deformed.
Identification: Caused by Cnemidocoptes mutans and evident as tiny white spherical creatures with a diameter of less than 0.5mm Scaly Leg Mite is difficult to spot in the early stages. For this reason we recommend you use Scaly Leg Spray as a deterrent as well as to treat an existing problem.

This product falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended) and is therefore suitable to use in organic systems.
Directions for use: SHAKE WELL. Spray the legs generously from the hocks down. Scaly leg mite can also attack the comb and wattles. For small birds - Apply 1-2 trigger pulls of product per leg. For average sized birds - Apply 5 trigger pulls of product per leg. For large birds - Apply 10 trigger pulls of product per leg.
For General Maintenance: When buying in birds always check them very carefully and treat them as a matter of course before introducing them to clean birds. Spray the legs, comb and wattles every few weeks (avoid eyes).
Where infestation exists: Scaly Leg Spray is a wonderful product to repel the mite, whilst soothing and calming irritation. Affected birds should be isolated and all housing cleared and thoroughly cleaned. Spray the legs, comb and wattles directly and evenly (avoid eyes) and repeat every 56 days to break the egg cycle.

The product appears to work I have been using it as a deterrent so hopefully it works. When I got new chickens they had uncomfortable bumps and sores on there feet as they were rescue chickens which healed really well so thanks (08/07/2015) -
Heel goed product. Na een paar dagen was mijn zijdehoen volledig genezen. Blij meisje heb ik weer! Ook verscheping naar NL gaat snel en zorgvuldig! Jammer dat het niet in NL rechtstreeks is te krijgen, maar zo lang dat niet het geval is, is dit een prima alternatief! (02/05/2013) Floor - Weesp

Seems to work well Used it twice now and it has dramatically improved situation. Got hens from a bloke who was moving and didn't realised the issue until it got quite bad and it affected my own hens. Seem to be on the road to recovery now though, time will tell. (07/06/2012) Martin - Lincolnshire
scaly leg spray this is one product that really does work. (17/05/2012) john - merseyside
Chickens stopped pecking out feathers I didn't realise but the irritation of the leg mite was the cause of chickens plucking out their bum feathers, this spray seems to have done the trick on the legs and they are leaving their feathers along now too. (15/02/2012) -
Excellent Value After two applications a week apart I was amazed and very impressed at the improvment in the condition of the affected bird's legs and her general condition. Back on lay and very happy with life again! Thoroughly recommended. (10/02/2012) Bill King - Cumbria
