Hi all,

Has anyone experienced their cockatiel plucking their feathers under both wings agrresivley? My bird has been doing that for the last 2 months and it's getting progressively worse. I have tried washed her cage and threw away her old toys as a I saw online that it could be parasite Giardia. I really can't afford the vet charges and wanted to see if there was something I could do to self treat her? Could I buy her medication online. Some blogs seem to be talking about ronizol etc. Any help would be appreciated!!

There is a medication on chewy or Amazon that treats with antibiotics. But do you have a picture of the areas? Maybe just wash her in the shower to see if she has mites? You can also place plain clean white paper in her cage on the bottom and see if that presents any answers?
