Net-tex Scaly Leg Remover is a specifically blended formulation 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 for 3 weeks to break the egg cycle until the infestation has gone.
Please read label carefully. Do not spray directly onto feathers.

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.

The cockerel that has been the most effected by scaly leg wasn’t getting better, so we decided to try Net-Tex scaly leg spray. We took the suggestion of using a toothbrush and this seems to be working well and he is getting better everytwoeiht[w'gpij'rgh[spke...
jabberwocky the cockerel here. enough with the brush thing. i demand dignity. don't tell humans am hiding in nest box. send help!
Sorry about that, wrestled the keyboard away and sent Jabberwocky back out again, no doubt to hide from us in the nest box. That's the thing about the scaly leg getting better, he is much more able to get about again!
Have used this solution before and it always does the job. Just follow the instructions and your chickens will soon be free from scaly leg.
fast postage loved the youtube vid explaining the product So far the item is working well and seems to be clearing up the issue quickly, I have been using it for about 5 days and I'm on the second use on the hens and it seems to be getting better
Easy to buy, good price and super fast delivery! Thank you Have only used this once but I think it's making a difference already.
Brilliant service as usual. Delivery arranged and on it's way before I could even start making space for it ;-) After bringing in a new cockerel ... a gift from a neighbour who had far too many boys running around and waking up his campers ... he brought with him a little problem in the form of leg mites. This is my go-to remedy for this so all my girls and the new naughty boy are being treated regularly until we get this under control.
