My Older D-Y-H Amazon is very oily on his back and top of wings..???
by Amber V
I have rescued a 30 yr old D-Y-H Amazon, and he is very oily on his back and on top of his wings, doesnt seem like he is able to preen well? His diet and droppings are healthy, he is not plucking himself. Just when I touch his back instantly fells like I touched a candle. Any idea what is going on ?
I tried spraying him with warm water and that didnt seem to provoke anything, I guess I will try to give him a full shower? Any opinion or advice is appriciated, there are not many avian vets where I live.
