Feather Pecking and Tail Biting
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! To combat the problem, we supply Scarper and Scarper clear. Both products are extremely effective deterrents.
