Hi there, I have two lorikeets, the female hasn't stop scraching and trimming her feather and skin(?) for a few days. I noticed her feather changed color ( not shiny, darker). She still eats well, I spray mite&lice spray on her after her shower. Any idea guys??? Please help me! I love my birds....

It could be the mite treatment is causing this. In the USA, over the counter mite treatments usually cause more problems and sometimes make the birds sick. You should only use mite treatments that an avian vet prescribes AFTER your bird has been diagnosed to have mites.

You will need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
