They're looking really good.. in six days too.. not bad considering the condition before they came to you! good job Aly, and I know that you must be very please with the result so far.

The only brand they had in the shop I was at - Gold brand. The lid wasn't on properly either and it make everything else I bought oily.

It is definitely worth the effort. I have a nice cock that I am going to pair with the violet lacewing and the cobalt cock has really good feather quality. Even if they were pet type birds it would be well worth the effort, its such a simple malady to fix I have given the cock a small beak trim and it really just needs filing down now.

Good on you Feathers! Those poor birds! How could anyone let it get that bad? I've never actually seen scaly face before... now I know!

 

They are looking so much better. It's good to see they are recovering.

 

Well done!!! :D

That's so great.

 

We have just treated my son's bird for scaly face. He started improving after just a couple of days and over the weekend we moved him into a small cage while we completely disinfected everything in his big flight cage and replaced all the wooden perches. He seems so much happier now too. I wish we'd taken photos as well.

It's great that scalyface is so "fixable" too. It's nice to see them more comfortable when on the road to recovery. :)

Both of these birds are now in the aviary. I will try to remember to get a photo in the next day or two.... not a sign that scaley was ever there.

I only have one of these birds now. A friend was totally in love with one of them and has taken him home. As I was getting some photos in the aviary the other day I took this "after" shot...

Not a trace of the scaley left and she is a very happy girl these days, do excuse her scruffiness though, a lot of my birds are moulting...
