After reading the post about the possibility of heavy metal poisoning, can someone suggest a natural remedy to this (after removing the source)?

If the bird has ingested metal particles, Giving peanut butter helps the body to get rid of it. The metal sticks to the PB and passes out of the body. Aloe Detox is also a good remedy.

The A- Zinc of Zinc Poisoning

For severe conditions they will usually do chelation therapy.

That must be the reason my Too that ate cage bars came back neg for heavy metals. We had him off the bars and on PB for awhile before test (to eliminate plucking)
