    Maybe his immune system is just stronger?
    I've also noticed the yellow one does this odd thing with her crop/mouth.

    Also, the yellow one is missing a toe. I was told she was born without it, but I haven't gotten a good look at her feet yet.

    Wow, is that the cage they were in? The treatment the vet will do is a shot, I believe

    Yes it is.

    I called and asked about getting some sort of medicine in the meantime, but I can't have it without first seeing the vet. We're going in at 10 am in Friday.

    Thats sandpaper! Could be calcium but get them cuttle bone.


    Well bless you & the lucky fids!

    If they are just mites then its good...I guess I'd want to put them in a box & get the cage & put it in the tub with something to kill them in the nooks & cranies.

    Would have to maybe be done again after treatment but would be alot less as they could be all over the cage...just an idea

    :eek: That’s nuts, poor birds! I’m glad they are home with you now, and I hope that the vet goes well on Friday. They are going to think they died and went to heaven soon!:heart:

    Will do.
    I just don't get this.... they have a cuttlebone but "don't use it"... so sandpaper is the next logical step?
    I mean... the cuttlebone doesn't look untouched...
    And there are pipecleaners everywhere. No idea if it's safe or not.
    And she set up one food dish directly under the other. You can guess where someone's been pooping...

    I'm planning on washing the heck out of that cage. There is so much to wash and throw out.

    Does anyone know if dawn dish soap+a night in the freezer would kill the danged mites? I got one of those deep freezers I can throw their stuff in and an extra cage.

    Be very careful, @Garet, you have other birds! I'm no vet nor do I want to be one so only can tell you my experience. Mites are not limited by species!
    One of my rehomes got mites after a health check and I had to treat my whole flock (myself included) for months! Quarantine wasn't enough! In addition to hitching a ride on you, they can crawl under and around doors and across floors. Daily vacuuming doesn't necessarily stop them.
    You can't guarantee that a door won't be opened by an adult family member even with a sign on it and instructions not to. Mites don't care about good intentions.
    This is in no way meant as a criticism. It's meant as a warning to prepare for the worst!

    I appreciate the warning, and I personally prefer a bit of tough love over not knowing something that could help my flock. If the vets can give me some sort of preventative treatment for the rest of the flock, I'll pick it up while I'm there.

    Time for the big guns, then. And a longer stray in the deep freeze.

    Or I could chuck the whole thing out and set them up in the spare cage come Friday until they're done being treated and get them a larger cage. I would like to at least keep the PVC stand and replace the rope with something a little less dangerous, but I'm not sure if it's worth the risk, if these buggers are this bad.
