I have 2 female 6 year old finches in separate large cages placed fairly close together. In the past few weeks one seemed weak and lethargic.I started adding spinach and veterinary finch diet plus vitamins and probiotics and noticed she became stronger and appetite improved but now is seeming agitated and fluffing feathers a lot. Droppings look fine .Im now increasing the amount of hours of light and placed a small humidifier in the room.Just today I began adding Doxycycline to water. Her feathers appear in a little bit of poor condition .Is there anything I may have missed .Oh I'm also adding milk thistle as of a week ago and yesterday started Polymva Is there anything more that I can do???What could be making her sick when the other bird is fine??

The birds are doing a little neck jerking but they Flinch their wings on their back every couple of seconds mostly when they go to sleep I sprayed the cages and spray them almost soak them with a mite killer and sprayed the cage and gave them scat And spread through the 8th birds that I have other than that they eat fine they act fine sometimes there's a slight puff to them when they're sitting but then the wake up and jump around the cage and eat on their thigh

Hello there, When my baby gouldian mutations come out of the nest they die shortly after. The parents feed them as normal, they have a clean and healthy environment and it’s frustrating and upsetting to see them die, it’s been happening every year for a few years now. Do you have any suggestions as to what might be wrong and how I can stop this happening?

I have had two Gouldians died within a month. I don’t know what to do. I am treating all 11 left with ivermectin. I have tried Scatt and s76 but nothing has worked so Friday I bought ivermectin at a feed store. I started treatment Monday. I don’t see any scratching like before. I found three the next day sleeping during the day. When this happens I know they are sick. So I started the three on antibiotics. They respond the first day but then they don’t. I just gave the three each a dropper of the dosage of worm away. I have worn away two weeks ago to all of them. Two died a few days later. Now I gave it to the three that are sick. The symptoms I see are the chest is way up front. They want to sleep. I don’t know what to do. These are not breeders. They are my pets and each have a name. The are in two large flight cages inside my house. Please let me know what I can do? Thank you. Shadynne.
