PostSubject: quill or feathermite   Thu Oct 06, 2016 4:49 pm

found this on another site thought i might share this as it may come in useful

1 tablespoon of vaseline
1 tablespoon of 'flowers of sulphur'
1 teaspoon of lighter fuel

Mix together to make a paste apply on affected area(best to apply to an area bigger than is affected).The birds skin will change from a blueish colour to a sand colour the following day.A bit messy but it does work.In a loft where there is a history of this condition treat ALL the birds in that section just before they moult.

The above is a tried and tested treatment used for many years.I myself have used it and can say NOBODY will post a treatment which will cure the problem better. Its 100% effective.

Ivomec on perches works. However, Diatamaceous Earth powder works better and is cheaper. Big bag is cheap. I use it on the dog blankets in tick season. Gets rid of worms also.
