Barrier Anti pecking Spray is a totally natural, non toxic, foul tasting spray designed to help deter feather pecking in poultry, which can be the first step towards cannibalism.

It is understood that the causes of feather pecking can be a combination of genetics and the environment in which the bird is kept. Prevention is always the best option and it is essential to stop this behaviour before an outbreak occurs and spreads throughout the flock.

Careful selection of genetic stock and good management practices can prevent most problems associated with aggressive feather pecking and cannibalism. Although the causes of cannibalism are not fully understood, a contributing factor can be unsatisfactory housing conditions. Feather pecking is known to be worse in battery than free range or deep litter systems. Overcrowding, excessive bright light, house temperature of less than 200C, insufficient access to food, water, perch and nesting space, dietary deficiencies, parasites like lice and mites and injured birds left in the flock, are all additional factors which can be to blame for bullying.

Feather pecking in poultry flocks is usually directed to the vent area, tail, body, feet and head and can range from gentle feather pecking to a very aggressive form. Unfortunately, poultry are attracted to blood and so the slightest fresh wound that bleeds can lead to cannibalistic behaviour, where the tearing and consuming of tissue, skin and organs can take place.

Anti pecking Spray includes a natural disinfectant and anti bacterial properties to help protect vulnerable, sore areas against infection.

Anti pecking Spray will help to deter pecking whilst soothing and calming sore areas.

Anti pecking Spray will not taint eggs.

Anti pecking Spray is suitable for use in both organic and intensive farming systems. This product fails 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.
How often do you spray The makers recommend you use Anti-pecking Spray regularly as a deterrent to help deter feather pecking in poultry, which can be the first steps towards cannibalism. You can start at twice per day and increase or decrease according to the results.
