my ring neck fell into caroil

THIS IS BEYOND AN EMERGENCY, AND YOU ONLY HAVE MINUTES/HOURS NOT DAYS TO GET THIS BIRD CLEANED UP!

Use DAWN DISHWASHING LIQUID and mix it up in some kind of bucket or container like from the kitchen. You want bird's feet to be able to touch the bottom of whatever it is without getting soapy water in nose, eyes or ears. You can also have someone else hold him while you soap him up.

Once you have mixed the DW liquid into warm, not hot water, put your bird into it being very careful to leave head up out of the soap and water. To get oil off his head, use a small sponge or piece of cloth. The idea here is to get the soap down to the skin as well as getting oil off feathers. If you do not get the oil off the skin in time, your bird will smother to death. Any kind of oil will cover all the skin's pores and birds and people suffocate.

IF THERE IS AN AVIAN VET IN YOUR AREA, YOUR BIRD SHOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN TAKEN THERE AS AN EMERGENCY. YOU HAVE LITTLE TIME IF YOUR BIRD IS COVERED WITH THE OIL BECAUSE HE WILL DIE IN VERY SHORT TIME.

Good Luck and God's Speed.

Dr B can not help your bird in time, and I don't have experience with this. You need to get immediate help. Please contact an avian vet or at least a breeder that is local to help you with this ASAP.
