Ground organic Flax Seed use a coffee mill.....grind fine: dust over wet food daily.
A good clean seed mix (Goldenfeast)
Daily soaking baths at least 20 minutes daily of fresh air and direct light (not through a window) when climatically feasible.
Also: there is a spray you can make up, to help relieve itching when new feathers are coming in,
1 TBS. Hylands Calendula spray
1 Tsp. chickweed extract-non alcohol or add a few drops boiling water to evaporate alchohol: put into
2 cups water, keep in fridge up to one week. Remember to relieve itching, you need to spray on the skin, not
feathers that keep skin dry.
Also itching is a symptom and rather than continually applying relief, the reason should be sought.
This reginmen does work.......if the bird has been thoroughly gone over and tests run by a really good avian vet and the bird declared healthy. It takes a good six months.....three before you start to see improvement. What damage is done in a short time takes MUCH longer to repair....
but repair it does.
