Sounds like bird has a parasite of some kind either internal or external. The only way to know which or if it is even a parasite and not a skin infection, is by taking bird to be examined, diagnosed and treated by an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area. Birds have to be seen by an avian vet because they are the only kind of vet licensed and trained in the care of birds. Dog and cat vets do not know anything about birds and will give wrong diagnosis and treatment which either does no good at all or kills the bird.

So, find an avian vet to see your bird so you know what is wrong and something is wrong. Use NO over the counter meds or home remedies because until you know for sure what you are dealing with, it cannot be treated.

Let us know what avian vet has to say and thanks for writing.
