Does my Ringnek have mites/fleas?
I thought I saw a flea or something on my 2 year old Ringnek but I'm not sure... He's been ruffling and cleaning his feathers much more than before and he has pulled out some of his tail feathers. Also, he's been very moody lately and his colour seems a bit duller than usual because he looks ruffled or disheveled (if one can say that of a bird...)
How do I know for sure if my bird has fleas or mites or something, and how do I treat it? I don't know of an avian vet where I live (Gauteng, South Africa).
