Default please help

I was busy painting and I had carefully kept buzz back in his cage, he wanted to play but I had to finish painting ...he somehow got out and flew towards me. I was taken by surprise and he jumped on my brush. He has acrylic non toxic paint on his chest and tail feathers. I got it out with oil and water but some of it is left. M worried to death that he will injest it. I don't have any clue how I can not harm him and take the paint of too. Should I even try nail paint remover?

Do NOT try the nail polish remover as it's really toxic.

Just keep trying the water he might not like it but its for the best ensure he doesnt ingest it. Keep us posted on how it goes

When you wash him use dawn dish washing liquid this is bird safe!. Don't use soaps or any other type of detergent. have you got the room well ventilated paint fumes are not good for budgies at all either.

My heart goes out to you right now. I'm sorry this happened, but you have to remember that it was just an accident. I'm sure many of the members here can tell you off all kinds of stories that they have experienced with scary accidents. You have been given some really good advice, and definitely try to Dawn dish soap thing. They use that stuff to save animals that get caught up in oil spills and such. Either way, I wanted to wish you and Buzz the very best luck.

I would definitely not use any other type of detergent as you don't know the ingredients. can you possibly post a picture of him for us to see the area?
Budgies are very easily damaged by fumes from paints, non stick cooking items, gas, deodorants, perfumes. these are all not good for your bird to be near.
is it possible for you to get in touch with a zoo or wild life sanctuary by phone they might be able to advise you.

I just kept my calm and used warm water with q tips to remove the paints. Thank god for fevicryl that the paints are non toxic and easily came off. I dried him a bit with soft cloth and kept him in the sun until he felt better. He looks tired and weary of the ordeal as it was not a pleasant time for him. I took an off from work and I'll watch him all day. He is eating and pooping fine so I guess he will be okay. I looked up my dishwash liquid and decide its better if I just use tepid water. I thought of this as I was washing my own hands and the paint just crumbled away with warm water after rubbing persistently. I am usually so careful with him that I stopped using nail polish since he loves to perch and lovingly bite my fingers in a good game of tickle fight. I am just praying now.

I am so glad that your budgie is doing better! Yes, warm water and cotton swabs sounds like the best action. If it's cool at night, you can put a heating pad on half of the cage so that he doesn't catch cold while he's getting extra baths during the day.
Don't worry about the accident - we've all had our fair share of them! I've even had my own Sammy get in a fight with my throw cushion and getting his two tail feathers stuck in the fluffy fabric like needles. That was a difficult one to solve
All paints produce fumes, even if they are non-toxic, so it's best to keep your budgie as far away as possible while you're painting. We'd love to see a picture of your finished work, too!
Good luck
