Olive oil in my birds fluff feathers

I put olive oil on my parakeets feet to help the dryness but he got some on his feathers, my boyfriend said to give him a bath so I did and there is still oil on him, he’s cleaning it off some. If it isn’t gone in a few days what do I do? He is acting normal.

Oil on feathers
by: Tracie

Eeeks, you learned the hard way that you need to get advice from an avian vet or experienced breeder before treating your bird. If your bird gets too much oil on it's feathers it will have a hard time regulating it's temperature.

If your bird still has oil on it's feathers, call an avian vet or experienced breeder for help.
