A complex multifactorial behavioural problem of poultry and game birds seen worldwide.
Morbidity is usually low but mortality is high among affected birds. Predisposing factors
include overcrowding, excessive light intensity or variation (e.g. through shafts of light in
the house), high temperatures, nutritional deficiencies, feed form (mashtakes longer to
consume than pellets), tenosynovitis and other diseases affecting mobility, boredom, and
strain of bird.


Pecking at feet (especially young chicks) and vents (adult layers and turkey poults 8-
12 days old), head, face, wings.

Post-mortem lesions

Skin wounding related to particular signs exhibited.
Generalised anaemia.


Age, distribution of lesions, anaemia. Differentiate from bacterial dermatitis, post-mortem


Correct any husbandry problems. Soluble multivitamins and/ or methionine may be of some
benefit in some circumstances. Beak trimming may be necessary. If so it should be carried
out carefully by trained operators, complying with local regulations and any relevant codes
of practice.


Proper density and temperature, low light level, control ectoparasites. Provision of a diet
that closely matches the nutritional requirements of the stock concerned.
