Bird with itchy head
by: Tracie

Possibly just provide clean water in a shallow dish for the bird to bathe in. Make sure you remove the water after a couple of hours. Birds that drink and bathe in water that has been sitting for hours sometimes end up with bacterial infections. We use a Lixit water bottle in our cages.

Your bird may be getting in some new feathers, and sometimes they get itchy when the pin feathers are coming in. If your bird starts scratching all over, or scratches until there is a bare spot, then you need to Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to make sure it doesn't have an infection or disease.
