Flea powder on bird caused plucking

YIKES! Flea powder? This could kill your bird.

Please do not put anything on your bird that has not been prescribed by an avian vet. First, Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird in person and tell the vet about the toxic powder you have put on your bird.

You can also read our Feather Damaging Behavior article written by an avian vet.
