Scarper! is a powerful, strong-smelling, natural product which has been specially designed for use in controlling vices in poultry, pigs and other animals.
Feather-pecking in chickens and tail-biting in pigs can cause significant damage to the animals concerned. Once the habit starts it becomes a vice which is very difficult to break and spreads from the original culprit to other members of the flock who soon pick up on the idea! The outcome is not only distressing but has significant financial implications for the flock-owner as in severe cases it leads to loss of production and even death. A pecked chicken is not a happy chicken – and miserable chickens don’t lay eggs!
Use Scarper at the first sign of feather-pecking and it will quickly act as a deterrent both to the original culprit and any other members of the flock who see the pecked area and think they should investigate! Not only do they back off because of the persistent odour, but the spray actually acts to camouflage the featherless/bloodied area.
Feather-pecking can start in even the best-managed flocks but more often than not, poor husbandry is a significant contributing factor.
Scarper! is the most effective anti-feather peaking spray product available.
Do remember to use disposable gloves when spraying Scarper! and please check out our ‘Tips to Prevent/Cure Feather-Pecking in Chickens’. Any staining to light-coloured feathers due to the Scarper spray will soon grow out or wear off as re-feathering occurs.
