Has Tweety Got Mites?
so Tweety has been with us for two days now, she is in quarantine at the moment before she joins the rest of the budgie family. My concern is though that she might have mites, she’s been scratching her face so much in the 48hrs we’ve had her, an preening constantly and can’t seem to sit still for longer than 10 mins! I’ve noticed a few red scabs/dots on her feathers too and a patch of red scabs on her left wing when she stretches.
If if she does have mites is she even safe in the same room as the other budgies? Can the mites spread even in seperate cages? And how much is it going to cost to get her helped (not that cost matters of course just so I can get an idea !)
