feather pecking in chickens

Pecking sores (also known as Feather pecking) and are the result of a behavioral problem that occurs most frequently amongst domestic hens raised for egg production. Feather pecking occurs when one bird repeatedly pecks at the feathers of another. The levels of severity are recognized as gentle or severe. Gentle feather pecking is considered to be a normal investigatory behavior where the feathers of the recipient are hardly disturbed. However, in severe feather pecking, the feathers of the recipient are grasped, pulled at and removed. This is painful for the receiving bird and can lead to trauma of the skin or bleeding, which in turn may lead to cannibalism and death. Birds are attracted to the redness that arises from the trauma and hence the behavior is exacerbated. Banixx for CHIXX, while not being a behavioral solution, will upon application (as a poultry injury treatment), turn a red, inflamed area into a pink (non-inviting area) and accelerate tissue repair. Separation of birds is generally recommended until the injured chicken is healthy, however, this behavior may continue when the bird is returned to the flock.

bumblefoot treatment in chickensBumble Foot is a term used to describe an infection called plantar pododermatitis on a chicken's foot. It is characterized by swelling, sometimes redness and often, a distinguishing black or brown scab on the bottom of a chicken's foot. Bumblefoot in chickens, if left untreated, can be fatal, as the infection can spread to other tissues and eventually to the bones. It occurs when bacteria, such as Staphylococcus invade and cause infection in the skin of a chicken's foot, creating a pus-filled abscess. The entry point for bacteria can be anything from a cut, scrape, injury or even simply a raw spot on the skin caused by walking on wet, dirty bedding. The most common behavioral symptoms of bumblefoot include limping and lameness. By the time a chicken is seen limping, the infection has most likely been festering for quite some time. Examination of the footpad may reveal redness, swelling and either a callous-like lesion, a lump between the toes or a black scab on the footpad. Most BumbleFoot treatments involve the use of iodine but, Banixx for CHIXX is a much easier, more effective, less messy antimicrobial solution. Soaking the foot in Banixx may be beneficial as the moisture may help the infection to break through the hardened skin.  Once skin has broken and the infection is draining, it's important to keep the foot sanitized and awash in Banixx until healing tissue is readily apparent.  Find Banixx near you or buy online.

Vent area infections. The vent is the small opening in a chicken’s butt that serves as both a reproductive opening and a feces discharge door. Both poop and eggs are ejected through this one small opening. A healthy vent will be pink and moist.  Sometimes a hard build-up of feces will be visible covering the vent. Your chick cannot poo and will die if not treated.  This will be relatively easy to identify visually and, moreover, it’s a life-threatening problem.  Your chick, in turn, will exhibit sluggishness and is in much discomfort and pain. Adult birds rarely succumb to this.

chicken vent gleet infection

How to treat Vent Gleet in Chickens

Vent gleet is a common chicken disease. Without a doubt, vent gleet needs immediate treatment. Simply put, it’s an inflammation of cloaca where the chicken defecates, mates and delivers EGGS! Luckily, for our readers, it’s mainly caused by a smelly fungus called Candida albicans and, Banixx for Chixx, is lethal against this fungus. When your chick has Vent Gleet what you will see is that feathers around the vent start to shred or get “stuck” to it. Besides this there may be some swelling and redness.   You may also observe a cream-colored discharge, a swollen abdomen and your chick may “off’ her egg laying. Vent gleet will not go away on its own.  Begin immediately by spraying Banixx in the vent area or apply it with a large cotton ball. Isolate your chicken to prevent infecting the flock.  Vent problems, if caught early on can be resolved somewhat easily.  Banixx for Chixx spray is an ideal preparation to apply during your chicken’s vent recovery since it doesn’t sting or burn and has no foreign scent or color. Contact your veterinarian for a definite diagnosis.

fowl pox in chickensFowl Pox (FP) in chickens is a virus that also affects turkeys and other birds. Both the wet and dry forms of FP are spread via mosquito bites or by the scabs which drop off and remain infectious for months. While Pox is active, the flock will be vulnerable to secondary infections – both cutaneous (the skin) and systemic (their whole system). This is where Banixx for CHIXX plays a role in addressing the bacterial issues of a secondary skin infection. Fowl pox may manifest as Scabs, Sores, bumps & lesions that may be white or yellow generally and may be accompanied by listlessness, loss of appetite and/or lower egg production. Recommended treatment is generally a regular triple-antibiotic ointment around the corners of the eyes, mouth and the body but Banixx for CHIXX provides a much easier, effective solution by providing a potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal spray that denies access to bacterial growth on your chicken. Easy to administer, Banixx for CHIXX has no odor or sting and is not affected by temperature extremes, hot or cold.

Customer Testimonial:
“I have a bunch of pet chickens. People do not realize that when you spend time with your chickens, they are really great fun, can learn and greet me cheerfully every am! One day, the whole flock attacked Susie; she was a mess. They had pecked her right down to the bone!! I grabbed my bottle of Banixx and sprayed her. I segregated her and kept treating her am and pm. She made a total, wonderful recovery and is now back with the flock! Thank you Banixx!.”Testimonial by Julie from Hawaii
"I really liked that this is anti-fungal as well as an antibiotic. I have treated 4 hens so far with positive results"Testimonial by Golden Mom
“This stuff works miracles. I have a pet chicken that was hurt by a dog. I put it in with my other chickens after it was injured. The next morning the other chickens had pecked her whole back down to the bone in an area the size of a saucer. She was almost dead. I immediately took her out, sprayed Banixx on her 3 to 4 times a day and within a couple of days it had a scab on it and then started to heal. This stuff kept her from getting infected too. Soon my hen was as good as new and all her feathers came back. She was a happy, healthy hen all because of Banixx. I think it saved her life and it healed her wound much quicker than expected.”Testimonial by Dianne
Banixx For Chixx is great for pet birds! My canary kept getting sore feet. I was told by a local store to try Banixx. It really works. I just clean the perches with it and my sweet canary stays healthy! Never has a problem with his feet.”Testimonial by RC from Kernersville
"Amazing product! When my chicken was attacked by a hawk everyone jumps to the vetericyn. However we had just stocked this in our pet store (Webers pet supermarket Herndon, VA) in the trial sized bottles and were getting good feedback from customers. I got through my little bottle pretty quick, so I ordered this one and sprayed the chickens' wounds 2-5 times per day. When my vet came back out only 4 days later to check on the stitching, even she was absolutely amazed how well she had healed! Seeing as her neck was completely torn open, you can barely even tell now! Obviously the stitches helped but I believe this product really helped in keeping everything clean and preventing infection. She is back out with the flock now and back to her happy self!"Five star review from Webers Pet Supermarket, Herndon, VA.
