In this article, we will explain the benefits of bathing our roosters with Asuntol and later with shampoo to rid them of lice and parasites, in this way we refresh them during the summer. With shampoo, we strengthen their feather, make them more flexible, and shiny, and with the matter, we rid them of the lice and paraffin that prevent our roosters from having a good fighting season.
We start by mentioning the materials, we need Asuntol which we get in any veterinary clinic, shampoo, and 2 buckets with 15 liters of water.
Bathe Game Fowl: What is Asuntol?
Asuntol is a brand name manufactured by Bayer. It can control ticks, sucking and biting lice, fleas, depluming mites, sheep keds biting and sucking flies, fly larvae in wounds, and mange mites in all domestic animals, except cats.
First, we will pour about 150 milliliters of shampoo (any brand will do) in a bucket and mix, then we will spray the Asuntol in the other bucket and proceed to stir.
Now, what we must do once mixed is to put the body of the rooster in the bucket with Asuntol for at least a minute, it is very important to be careful not to put the head of the rooster in the water at any time.
Subsequently, we must immerse it and rinse it in the bucket with shampoo, we must not submerge its head and we must keep it there for another minute and then put it in a correlate to dry before putting it in its cage.
We must mention that in our cockpit we only bathe them during the summer, and we must mention it because we have seen that many do it in winter and the animals get very cold, so we recommend waiting for the heat to bathe our animals, remember that not only try to rid them of lice and parasites, we must also think about the comforts of our roosters.
