I'm sorry to disagree with you sonnydukes. But the reason I have recommended an avian vet again is because this is something that the poster has been trying really hard to fix himself and has had no luck.
The problem is not going away and we can't diagnose this problem ourselves. We could recommend something that makes this poor bird worse.
Sadly the cost of vets are expensive for any pet owner and this is something we agree to pay when we choose to have a pet in our life. There is sadly no way around this and sometimes we have to pay out for something we don't want too because it's for the best for our pet.
Bananarama, is it possible for you to call your avian vet or even find a different one to see?
If you phone them up and ask how much it will cost to speak to them about the issue. They might be able to diagnose the problem and if they can recommend a treatment, then you can enquire the costs and decline treatment and see if forum members have some solutions then.
If you can find out what they believe is wrong with your bird, whether it is actually mites, you have a better chance of getting sweet little Sherbert better than you do if you keep treating random things it could be.
There could be some treatments people know of IF we know what is wrong.
I believe 100% that the best thing is to see an avian vet and have them treat Sherbert, whether you have had a bad experience in the past or not.
Having left the issue so long, you are giving Sherbert less of a chance than if you had acted swiftly with a vet visit.
