Default Oily mess

I'm freaking out. Our non-tamed budgie got out of the cage this evening (like 30 mins ago), her wings are clipped (still able to fly a bit) and scared of us; took off into flight but crash landed in a small pot of not hot cooking oil (thank gawd!)! I put her in the sink and rinsed her as best I could and used a little bit of dish soap (Green Works). She was biting the heck out of me so I was having a hard time cleaning her. I don't believe her head went under just her body in the oil. I'm not sure if I got her feather cleaned enough. Should I rinse her again? Blow dry her feathers? I have NO clue what to do! Scared bird momma over here!

We generally don't have that sort of stuff sitting out, but we used the oven tonight.

Please help!! Any information!!

Dawn dish detergent is what is usually recommended for it's ability to cut oil and not be too harsh on bird's skin. I would try to get some if possible and wash her until you think you have got it out. She should be fine but I don't know about your hand...

I agree with Randy's recommendation.

Dawn dish liquid is best to use and please do be very careful not to get any in her eyes.

Are the pictures you posted of her after your bathed her or right after she went into the oil?

You must keep her in a warm environment as her feathers are not able to do he job of keeping her warm. Poor baby she would of been very frightened I imagine.

Default Maize- oily mess

The pictures are of after her bath.
She was very scared.
I have her in our bedroom now, it is the warmest room in the house. She has been cleaning herself some, help from her cage mate also. I am going to keep an eye on her the rest of the night and if she doesn't fluff out more by tomorrow, I will wash her again. Poor thing

Thanks for the support everyone!

Keep the cage covered with a warm blanket place a hot water bottle near the cage or under the grill so she can get close to it if she needs to. I hope she is feeling more settled and less stressed.

I'm so sorry this happened! Glad it is not more serious and I'm sure come morning she will be no worse for wear

Please let us know how she does! You did a great job cleaning her, and I agree with Randy concerning any extra washing. Fingers crossed!
