I recently got a cockatiel from someone. The white on its wings and back tail feathers look dirty, I have been using bird spray on it (Ecotrition) Bird Bath Spray. It still looks dirty. Any suggestions? The person I got her from is a very good breeder, they have been sick and son is helping to take care of the little ones. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Have you thought about letting her in the shower? There's really no way to wash a tiel, they gotta do it on their own. If the feathers are stained, they'll molt out eventually.

Hey! I have a cinnamon lutino and it looks similar to what you're talking about, but he's not dirty, he just has grey on his otherwise white and yellow feathers

Maybe that is what it is. Just. Thought it looked like dirt, but never could get it to away using bird spray. I just told my husband tonight maybe it is just a little of a cinnamon color on the otherwise white wings. Thanks. If I get a chance tomorrow I will try and get a picture of up him. Or her lol.

Mine is not showing a paper clip. That is why I can't figure this stupid thing out. LOL

Upload the photo/s to imgur or photobucket or whatever and copy the direct link, then in the reply section on here, click the little picture icon (it's the same icon in quick reply and advanced) and paste the photo URL into the box that pops up and press OK.





The easiest image hosts I use are imgur.com and postimg.org
