    One of my hens (Frances) is always missing her front neck feathers - I guess one of the other girls is picking them out. So I went out and bought some of the Pick No More and was getting ready to put some on Frances' neck and some of it shot up onto my chin and man on man did it burn! Even after washing it off the burning continued for a long time afterward. I really, really don't want to put this on Frances if this is going to burn her skin as well - that would be torture! Anyone know if chicken skin supposedly can tolerate this better than our skin or are we all just kidding ourselves thinking it doesn't hurt them?

    I don't know, but Wow! I don't think I would want to put it on my chickens! Does it give a list of ingredients on the container?

    It also made me cough if I inhaled the fumes. I used it on my hens and they didn't seem to suffer or be bothered once I set them down. It did help with the picking.

    The burning and the fumes would be most likely from the Coal Tar. (Coal Tar shampoo burn a little also)

    Active Ingredients: Aloe Vera Gel, Calendula (Marigold), Cresylic Acid, Coal Tar Distillate, and Tea Tree Oil.
