I'll also repeat what others have said: all of the birds need to be treated with Ivermectin whether they are showing symptoms at the moment or not.

This product is available from Amazon.UK which I assume ships to Portugal.

As you can see from the ingredients, it contains the necessary ivermectin.

Beaphor Anti-Parasite Spot-On Treatment for Small Birds

If you order from Amazon based in the US, the appropriate product to use for mites is SCATT (spot-on treatment).

Vetafarm Products Scatt 50 ml Spot On Treatment

You can also order SCATT from ladygouldianfinch.com They ship internationally as well:

LadyGouldianFinch Scatt Spot On

As indicated, when one bird has mites, ALL of your birds will need to be treated.

Hello friends,

Sorry for not responding soon, been quite busy with my job.

So, I have applied 1 drop of Ivermectin in each bird's back neck in 24th December, and 31st December. They look much better. ZÉ MARIA's legs look almost new!!

I'm so happy you could help me saving them!!! I even gave them a new home! Thank you very much to you all.

Will it take long to ZÉ MARIA gets full recovered?

The avian vet that gave me the medicine you advised, gave me this budgie nest and told me to attach it to the cage to see where it goes. I've noticed in the last days, that ZÉ MARIA is putting one leg in one of the females back, but no jumping on her back. They feed and love each other all the time. Could ZÉ MARIA have some kind of a problem on jumping on her due to the missing claws? Or I am overthinking and this is a normal status before mating?

Please check out the images!

Once again, thank you very much to you all!!
Very glad to be a part of this forum.

I'm glad to hear your birds are doing better. Please remove the nest box immediately. Budgies do not need hidey houses or boxes to sleep in and having a nest box or anything that resembles it will encourage accidental breeding. Additionally it seems your cage is below the minimum size for 4 budgies. The minimum for two budgies is 30 x 18 x 18 inches. Have a look through all the stickies and articles on the forum to ensure you are giving your birds the best care possible. I've linked a few down below for you.

I agree 100% with iHeartPieds.
It really concerns me that the vet would recommend you attach a nest box to their cage
when you are new to owning budgies and do not have the necessary knowledge and experience.

The last thing you want to do is encourage breeding behavior!

Please read remove the nest box immediately and be sure you follow the advice in the links iHeartPied provided.
Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

This forum never recommends colony breeding.

You definitely need to remove the nest box. Budgies don't need a nestbox to be happy and they don't use it for anything other than breeding.

Since you have no experience with breeding budgies and are trying to discourage breeding behavior, be sure to take out the nest box immediately!

I absolutely agree with the above posts regarding taking away the nestbox, and the reasons why. I hope you will take this into consideration. Please read the information in the links as well.. It’s all true!

Dear friends,

I'm sorry for not being able to come here often. I have learned a lot with your advices.
I've been away from home in business operations around Europe. In one of them, I've been able to buy IVOMEC, that is the name for Ivermectin in Europe.

My house keeper removed the nest right away you told me, luckily, no action happened!

However, yesterday, I came to check the most active female in this situation.

She is drooling, with millet around the beak. She stays in the bottom of the cage very puffed up and very still.

Any ideas of what this could be? Could it be the mites again?

Thank you!

Please take her to the vet right away, a bird that is at the bottom of the cage very puffed up and still is quite ill and needs professional treatment.

Your budgie needs to be seen by an Avian Vet immediately.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, then take her to a regular vet and ask that person to consult via phone, fax or skype with an Avian Vet (even if it is in a different country) to determine the best diagnosis and treatment protocol for your little girl.

Please be sure to update us regarding her condition. Sending prayers and healing energy for her to have a full recovery.
