I have a Cockatiel named Coty
He has been scratching for couple of months. I looked online for Home Remedies and pet bird mites.
Make bath water:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Soak bird for several minutes.
Then Towel dry.
Put Olive Oil in a Spray bottle & spray bird.
Return bird to his cage.
I did all this.
Woke up this morning and Coty is on cage floor tucked in a corner
He won't talk, sing whistle, play with his toys/bells and he won't eat.
PS: Today I bathed him again twice with plain warm water, placed him in cage and covered him with blanket and have him in warm room.
WHAT DO I DO??
