Poultry Scaly Leg is a disease caused by a small parasitic mite known as Cnemidocoptes Mutans. The mite burrows under the scales of the bird's legs or feet, where it causes great discomfort. It may also infest other areas such as the comb or wattles of chickens.
The mite causes a multiplication of the tissue cells and the secretion of a serum. The scales are raised, and the legs become thickened and have a rough lumpy appearance, often showing what would appear to be a growth on the leg.
The disease is easily recognised as the mites look like tiny white spherical creatures (approx. 0.5mm in the early stages). It is highly contagious and affects birds of all ages, although older birds and feathered leg breeds tend to be more susceptible. It is most common in flocks kept on earth, damp ground or in dry litter runs.
In the early stages it would appear to cause little inconvenience, but should it be neglected the birds lose condition, go lame and have difficulty in perching. In the worst instance mortality may occur.
Net-tex Scaly Leg Remover is a specifically blended formulation is designed to suffocate and effectively remove the Scaly Leg parasite in a simple spray application. It may take several weeks, however, before the scales return to normal.
Instructions for Use: Can be sprayed directly on the legs, feet, comb and wattles to treat the infested areas (avoid eye contact). Alternatively, spray on to a soft toothbrush and apply to the legs and feet in an upward motion. Repeat approx every 3 days to break the egg cycle until the infestation has gone.
Please read label carefully. Do not spray directly on to feathers.
