Hen budgie, about 4-5 years old, continually scratching, now missing feathers, treated with out of date "Bird Mite & Lice Spray" containing 0.5g/L pryethrins, 5g/L piperonyl butoxide, 3 days ago. No avian vet or pet shop available on island. Can you give home remedy to try. Condition of bird deteriorating.
Caged with 10 other birds in spacious clean aviary. This hen is paired and she spends a lot of time in nest box. Disinfected nest box 3 days ago also and have now separated her from all other birds. She can't fly very well or far. She's had quite a few downs but has always recovered. Thank you
