Indian Ring-neck molding and dry skin. Help!

by Gabriela

Hello there, I have a bird who is an Indian Ring-neck and I am very concern about him. He is a year old. I have been observing him and I have noticed that he has very dry skin, I do not know what is causing him to have dry skin, I keep him indoors, I bathe him and give him fruit so the dry skin would go away and it hasn't. Also he seems to be molding but it have been a month with the mold. What can I do in this situation?

Are you feeding Harrison's or Roudybush pellets? If you are feeding 70-80% high quality pellets, and only a small amount of treats, then your bird should be healthy.

It could be your bird is molting, and what you are seeing is the dander from the new feathers coming in.
