Mighty Mite Poultry Leg Spray

100 ml bottle with spray top

Mighty Mite from WashBar – keeping chooks ‘chemical free’, not just ‘free range’.

Backyard chooks are making a comeback as more and more households switch on to collecting eggs from a chicken run in the back garden. Mighty Mite is a natural and healthy, easy to use and effective way to control 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 and can be painful for the affected chicken and if untreated will spread to the rest of the flock.

  • Mighty Mite Poultry Leg Spray is 100% natural, so there’s no withholding period (what’s the point, if you can’t eat the eggs?)
  • Easy to use and effective on controlling the mites that cause Scaly Leg
  • Totally non-toxic – safe for the chicken, around other animals and the kids
  • Perfect for owners who want ‘chemical free’, not just ‘free range’

Made with 100% natural ingredients – Neem oil, Argan oil and essential oils of Cedarwood, Rosemary, Lemongrass and Kanuka, in a Sunflower oil base.

How to use / Directions

Carefully hold the chicken under your arm (holding with one hand) and spray a couple of squirts of Mighty Mite oil onto the effected 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 –you should get enough on the legs to work it’s magic!
