Hello My name is Brad Johnson. I am a veterinarian who owns a small animal practice in Nebraska. I have limited bird experience and am reaching out for a professional consult.
I have a client who has a Starling bird, 4 yrs old, that she hand raised. The birds name is Twirper. He is very tame, has a vocabulary of approximately 70 words and recieves excellent care.
He has a feather problem. 3-4 wing feathers are growing in with a very hard casing over them. The owner has used Veterycin ointment without success. Let me know if you are able to provide some guidance.
Brad Johnson, DVM
