I'm very glad to hear you will be taking Jim in for his first Avian Vet visit this week!

Looking forward to hearing how the visit goes and seeing lots more of your little cutie soon.

Welcome to you and your lovely boy!
Make sure you take him to an avian vet and not just a general vet. Many general vets don't have the extra knowledge needed for our special bebes and might miss something.

Was he born missing those toes?

Thanks for the advice and well wishes everyone.

And yep he was born missing those toes. Was just a little unstable to start off with but now he has adapted perfectly. Takes the odd wobble when having a scratch but that's about it.

So I went to the vet today with Jim and they didn't know what it was. Said it might be mites but it seemed to be very slight if it was at all. They recommended calcium as well and also the drug named above but stated in Northern Ireland it isn't licenced and she could either dilute some right down from the horses formula or use some for pigeons. But that a disclaimer would have to be signed in case it had adverse side effects such as death.

So we didn't bother wih that.

I went to the pet store where they had some mite spray and scaly face lotion, the latter you massage into the beak and legs.

Anyone any experience with such a product or should we go with the vet and get them diluting?

Default Healthy Beak?

Get him off Trill and on to something else. A lot of people have had problems with the New Trill. The old one was all right but they have changed the recipe and a lot of budges wont touch and it has made them ill.

That's really odd that "Scatt" isn't licensed to be sold in Northern Ireland.

I'd be concerned about putting anything on the skin and feathers that Jim could ingest and wouldn't recommend doing that.

Following is information about the correct dosage of ivermectin to use for budgies and the amount could be diluted down from the product for pigeons if you are unable to order this product in Northern Ireland.

https://www.awbirds.co.uk/ivermectin-...ites-896-p.asp


With regard to use of the "Trill" brand birdseed, please take a look at this thread
https://talkbudgies.com/diet-nutritio...bird-seed.html

There have been issues where some people have had birds become very ill after using this product so I encourage you to make an informed decision. I know you want Jim to be as healthy and happy as possible.

Tom Boy... Jim is a darling and I hope his beak issue is short lived. I had a question.. I have a budgie with very crossed wings like Jim's, only one sticks up a bit. He can't fly. I just assumed it was an old injury. Do you know why Jim's wings are crossed and can he fly?
Thanks..
Judy

You can purchase small bird-specific Ivermectin or Vetafarm Scatt over the Internet. In the meantime, apply a substance as I explained.

I'm glad you're going to improve his diet. My avian vet offers several nutrition handouts here:

Best wishes and please let us know about his progress.
