Mighty Mite from WashBar – keeping chooks ‘chemical free’, not just ‘free range’.
Backyard chooks are making a comeback as more and more households discover the satisfaction of collecting their own eggs from a chicken run in the back garden. Mighty Mite is a natural and healthy, easy to use and effective way to repel mites that cause scaly leg on chickens.
Scaly leg is crusty, concrete-like deposits on chicken’s legs, caused by a mite burrowing under the skin and scales around legs and feet causing them to become raised and thickened. It’s unsightly, irritating for the affected chicken and if left untreated may spread to the rest of the flock.
Made with 100% natural ingredients – Neem oil, Argan oil and essential oils of Cedarwood, Rosemary, Lemongrass and Kanuka, in a Sunflower oil base.
Carefully hold the chicken under your arm (holding with one hand) and spray a couple of squirts of Mighty Mite oil onto the affected legs. If you find it just goes everywhere except the chicken’s legs – put a couple of squirts into your hand and rub onto the legs.
For roosters or chickens that you can’t catch or get near, wait until they roost for the night. Get as close as you can and aim the spray at their legs.
