One of my hens developed a bad case of scaly leg and after one application of ointment, I could see a visible difference within days. As instructed, I applied the product again after 5 days and was able to see a definate improvement in my hen's condition. I also applied it to my other hens to prevent them catching scaly leg too. The ointment is very messy and my hens did run into the grass and try to remove it immediately, but overall, I don't regret buying it.
