                 Upcycled Bird Houses

If schools in India teach children to make wild bird houses and feeders from re-cycled products,then we can create many homes for different bird species.Parents and Teachers must monitor in putting iron wires hangings so that children do not hurt themselves.Children can learn about wild birds,feeding,habitats and also donate a house accordingly.All schools must organize this bird protection movement once in 6 months.

Feeding baby birds

Baby Feeding for rescue birds. Pour or siphon the mixture into a clean eye dropper.The baby bird will open its mouth if it wants to eat. It will also keep its mouth closed when it has had enough. Don’t force it – return later.baby birds need feeding every hour in general (larger birds every two hours). This is something to do combined with general tips on caring for fledglings, such as keeping them warm, in a dark place, and in the quiet.

Check the bird is abandoned or lost. It is wrong to take baby birds from their nest when the mother bird will likely return. Check for injuries as well, and do not try to feed if injured.

Check the bird is abandoned or lost. It is wrong to take baby birds from their nest when the mother bird will likely return. Check for injuries as well, and do not try to feed if injured.

      Feed for  rescued baby bird

  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 50 ml boiling water
  • 65 g ,50% cleaned,soaked or boiled moong daal,Chana daal,urad daal and 50%boiled rice or breadcrumbs
  • Egg yolk if available
  • Plain Yogurt or curd if available
  • Mix and mash it continuously with spoon  in a clean bowl till you get the right consistency.You can use clean mortar and pestle to mash the food.
  • Food should be neither too thick nor too thin nor watery
  • Neither hot nor cold, but preferably room temperature or slightly warmer. You don’t want to burn the baby’s mouth, and you also don’t want to feed cold food.
  • You can add some fresh sweet orange or papaya or water melon or apple pulp juice if you have fresh fruits at home.Add it only when serving.
  • This can remain fresh in refrigerator for one day or max 3 days.Store in clean air tight container.
  • Do not use microwave to warm it.

The bird bath

This is also the  cure for stray sick birds who often lands in front of my door.Hindu habit of planting trees,flowers,herbs, giving a bowl of fresh water,bird feed on the terrace for wild birds.Making few extra chapatis/food for cows and street dogs is a part of ancient practice.


A twisted neck (sometimes called torticollis, or ‘stargazing’) can also be a symptom of a number of disorders, which effect the nervous system and cause the twisting. One such problem is caused by a calcium deficiency, and in chicks this can lead to all sorts of trouble (brittle bones and malformed limbs being one). This normally crops up in hand-reared birds, but I suppose if the parent’s diet is poor it might happen with normal rearing. Apparently no matter how close to the natural diet you can get to giving hand-reared birds, somehow the calcium and associated vitamins do not balance right (I have been informed it is regularly seen in zoo collections, despite having vet-grade calcium supplements). The second, and probably more scary, major cause is a disease from paramyxovirus (of which there are several types) which is highly infectious, causing diarrhoea, inappetite, wasting, paralysis of wings and legs, deformities of the legs (from the paralysis), head tremors, fitting, neck twisting. This infection normally affects pigeons, but is also seen in poultry and waterfowl (which are usually vaccinated for it), and can be contracted by other birds, such as our caged ones.

I have also seen neck twisting as a result of head trauma, which I have seen successfully remedied by veterinary treatment. As this is what your own vet thinks has happened to yours, the outlook is good – fingers crossed!

Man and nature must live in harmony.Man must take care of the lower species.Every human being must do a little farming to sustain wildlife.Do not spend your whole life watching Television.               


Herbs are not dangerous to birds. Ayurveda treatment is the best for your birds.This blog gives free Ayurveda healing.

Neem is the most powerful Ayurveda herb and is called holy because of the high healing energy.Bird owners should also drink boiled Neem water once a week to avoid AVIAN fLU.

The wild bird treats itself with the herbs in the forest when sick.Do not deny the bird the natural treatments.Try planting herbs near your house and in pots.Place fresh water and feed for wild birds as part of your religion.


Grow wheat grass,sava grass,maize grass, lemongrass,thyme,spinach,holy basil,Neem,cherry tree and money plant in pots.Let the birds feed on them.The birds will learn to live independently in the wild too.

Lahsoon (Garlic)Has anti-oxidant properties as well as anti-parasitic properties which kills intestinal parasites. Protects the liver from the damage of chemical pollutants in the air and in food and water supply. In Ayurveda, garlic juice is as strong as the antifungal drugs, Amphotericin and Nystatin, against Candida, a fungal problem sometimes found in parrots. Should be used sparingly and in the form of fresh garlic, not the concentrated garlic powder. Garlic belongs to a family of plants that may cause anemia in animals and birds if given for long periods of time.

It keeps the cage dry.Always keep the cage door open for the bird to fly in and out.Place potted plants/different types of grass in pots near the cage.My birds always feed on fresh millet/wheat grass that I grow.Birds love Money plants.They love hanging on it. Handle the bird with love and care as if she was your own delicate body.Wear sponge/woolen gloves in one hand when curing African parrots with pointed beak.

Mosquito net for birds made up of net material or transparent cloth helps protect the birds from mosquitoes and other insects.

Mosquito net for birds made up of net material or heat proof fibre glass or  transparent cloth helps protect the birds from mosquitoes and other insects.Mosquito bites lead to wart formation in birds.You can also use these as hospital cage when the birds are sick.It can be washed and need less storage space.You can put a wooden sitting stand inside it.This is my little innovation for small birds.

Make the healthy bird drink a drop of Neem water once a month.She will always stay fit and her blood will remain pure.Birds feed on Neem leaf and the bark of the Neem stick. NEEM is the best cure against throat red mites which causes death of the birds all over the world. To avoid ants place the fruits on a marble stand in a tray of water.


In ancient times, around 250 gms of salt or sand was heated and placed in a double folded cotton sack.It worked as a heating pad.More cotton cloth was placed on top to adjust the heat.This was used for curing sick birds and animals.These days baby hot water bags are available in India which can be used as heating pad with layers of cotton to adjust heat and free space for movement if the heat is not bearable.Heat cause dehydration,place water and feed.

A combination of different types of grains are available in all local stores.All plants and trees are holy.Every plant,trees and grasses have medicinal value but Tulsi(Holy Basil) and Neem is an part of Hindu homes because they cure most ailments.

Soaked pulses(daal of different variety) or boiled pulses are good source of proteins.They should be crushed using clean/washed mortar before serving it to tiny birds.Soup style kichri or Khichdi of soaked daal and soaked brown rice boiled in water is very healthy.You may also add few crushed leaves of spinach,holy basil,few wheat grass,soaked black chana,soaked moong and some lettuce.Do not add salt.

Soup style khichdi for birds.The birds love drinking the soup.

Semi precious stones should be kept in the house to absorb negative energies.It should be cleaned by placing it in water in full sunlight or moon light for 12 hour once in 15 days.Healing energies of crystals have been a very ancient discovery in India.

In ancient time healers never took money for healing because all the healing knowledge came from meditation.Taking money for healing adds extremely negative karma.I would like to follow the ancient Vedic trend.Wisdom of farming is a gift by the civilized mind and everyone must do a bit of farming to protect these beautiful creation called the “Birds”.



Universal Oneness:The Universe is my body.All minds are mine.With all feet I walk.Through all mouths I speak.In everybody I reside.

  4. BENITA LOBO Says:

    Hello..Nice article very helpful. Sir, i need an information. I m from Mumbai & i have a african parrot. Recently one of his foot got injured i don’t know how, he is not able to move in his cage. He does not allow me to apply him haldi (he comes to bite). I had mixed 2 drops of crocin syrup in his water, so that he might not fall sick. He does play or talk like before just sits queitly have his sunflower seeds and keep quiet. I don’t know what to do. I m much worried. Sir i will b grateful if your suggest some ayurvedic medicine that can b given through his food or water. Please Sir i need your help. Waiting for your positive reply. THanks & REgards. Benita

    • wear gloves in one hand,hold his stomach and with the other hand pick up the bird gently.Check what is wrong.Do the necessary medication.Put him under a lamp.Make sure the heat is not too much and there is enough space for the bird to move away if the heat is too much.

    • Also place food and water.The bird will drink water frequently because the heat will cause dehydration.Sprinkle dried tulsi leaves in the bird food.I am not very sure about crosin syrup.I have heard there are antibiotics available for the bird to stop infection but that is available in the form of bird dose.Never use detol or cetrimide etc on the birds wound.It will decay its feet.

  5. Dear Sir,
    your article is really interesting. . I too have zebra finches and cockteils at home. . . I would like to know my finches have very wet droppings. . Like loosemotions what can i give them as medicine

    • Few drop of ginger juice in drinking water will be fine.Do not feed them seeds that are colored.Also give them one slice of boiled egg with the yoke and the white part.Keep the cage clean.Drinking water should always be fresh.Fruits like papaya,grapes,orange….boiled rice,boiled pulses etc will be healthy.Soak the seed prior to boiling.It takes few min to boil them in a little container.Soup style khichree is very healthy.Do not use salt.

    • finches eat sand for grinding.

  6. Sir,
    I am a bird lover and I have 2 male budgies and one baby female budgies which I recently brought from Sharjah bird market.

    All these budgies are free from cage, they are our loving pets and I gave full freedom inside the home, they are very friendly with me and my family.

    My question is that the female budgie’s dropping is wet (loose motion) and most of the time she bend her neck backward and sleeping and shaking her tail frequently, having very little food, but other male budgies use to feed her.
    As you mentioned above my wife use to give ginger water 2-3 times a day
    and she feel little better now, but from today onward one of the male budgie also started same illness like her.

    Kindly tell me what kind of illness is this? and what is the medicine you recommend for this illness?

    Thanks and awaiting for your early replay.

      e.Change water and feed frequently.A sick bird will feed only on egg shells for calcium.

  13. Your article is interesting. In fact , i was interested my bird treatment in a heathy way.I hope to have some remedy for egg binding,as my bird has laid egg for first time on 15t march & another today .Mine is indian neck ring & i am concerned about her health.Ifeed curd ,paneer occasinaly,for calcium supplement .Iheard peanut causes liver problem.How to remedy this situation.I give palak,anaar,grape,banana,sweet pea,gur,rice grain,kharbuja seed wich they love.What to do with laid egg?she loves to sit on it.How garlic is o be served .Your information about neem leve for mite seem good to try.How &when to give bath as now i am not sure whether she will lay more egg.i worry about her.Please let me kow soon as what treatment is possible for eeg binding situation.

    • The feeding habits of your bird is good.Do not give garlic unnecessarily,it can be bad for the bird.The bird takes bath on its own if given the right environment.You do not need to give bath.Give them a good bathing tub that fits well.The birds are matured so do not fuss with the eggs.They have been programmed to take care of it.Give them tulsi juice from time to time.

    • Take plastic jars that come with tea,toffees etc.cover it with thick colored polythene.Make round holes using scissors for birds to enter.Hang it using iron wire.Cut iron wire with iron jaw.

  18. hi i have a blue ring pet bird but these days he is feeling sick n m really worried about him.he mostly sits by bending his neck backward and hiding beneath his feathers.the second thing is he is having a problem of loose motions and the color or his motions is brown these days.the third thing he is being sleepy whole day and do not talk.please tell me what to do as soon as possible.i want a home remedy or a herbal treatment for this .

    • Aisha,your bird is on the verge of death.Try this

      a.Clean the cage,put the cage in fresh air,give her fresh feed,fresh water,egg shells and boiled eggs even if she declines to eat them.

      b.Boil 20 leaves of tulsi(holy basil) in water till only 2 spoons of water is left in the pan.Allow it to cool at room temperature.Take a syringe(THROW AWAY THE NEEDLE).Make the bird drink the Tulsi water every 4 hours.Do not make them over drink.A drop is enough.Do not give her anything refrigerated.

      c.The bird is not eating anything.You have to give her energy.Make her drink water melon juice every 3 hours with syringe(without needles).Do not feed her excess of water melon juice.

      d.In the night,put a lighted bulb on her cage to keep her warm for 1 hour.Do not forget to give her juice.The bulb can cause dehydration.

      e.Change water and feed frequently.A sick bird will feed only on egg shells for calcium.

      f.Avoid cleaning rooms with disinfectants but boil neem leaf in water and then add it to the cleaning water for room cleaning.

    • I really do not know if your bird eats egg shells so avoid point a

  19. My Alexandrian parrot has been sick with the above-mentioned last condition of losing balance while sitting or walking since 5 days. I will certainly treat it with above recommendations. I hope it recovers. Although it does take short flights but once it comes down it loses balance. Pls update with anything more. Thank you.

  20. Hi,
    I have a 2 pairs of Zebra Finches. Off late I have seen one of them loosing feathers and turning bald. I keep them absolutely clean (water is changed every few hours and immediately in case they have droppings, same with the food), bath every 2-3 days, have been giving them spinach / coriander every 3rd day. The cage is cleaned twice a day. Unsure if there is some infection. Could you please help?

    • They are suffering from mite infection which is dangerous.Spray neem water with plastic hair sprayer.Boil neem leaves,cool it and then drain off the leaves.Pour in the sprayer and spray on the bird.Let them dry.After they are dry,take fresh Aleo vera leaf ,scoop out the jelly from the leaf and apply a drop on the scalp.The perch should be thick neem twig and the nest should contain dry neem leaves.The bird will feed on neem leaves and dried neem twig on its own.Mites are dangerous for you too.Clean the house with water and some neem juice instead of chemicals.You should also drink neem water.

    • Also feed a drop of neem water to the bird with a syringe after throwing away the needle.

  21. Tammy L Marengo Says:

    I liked your article. Can you use tea tree oil for dry feet on finches instead of neem, or are you supposed to use both?

    • Yes,you can use tea tree oil but you should keep in mind that the oil is slippery and the bird will break its feet if she slips.So dust the feet with turmeric powder or wheat flower after oil application.use clean ear bud to apply oil.

  24. Hi,

    I have a Alexandrine Parrot 5 months old, he is sneezing dry from past 15+ days, we have taken him to Vet but still there is no improvement. We have taken Xrays of his lung and Vet said he has cold his right lung is full.

    The Vet had given injection and tablet but still there is no improvement.

    Currently we give him Corn, Tamotos, Parrot Seeds to eat.

    Please suggest what should i do so my recovers soon.

    • You have to use a lamp at safe distance,along with feed and water…also space for movement…warmth is needed.Boil some holy basil and a speck of grated ginger(one papery slice), in water so that maximum juice gets mixed with water,cool it feed the bird a drop after ever 3 hours.Also watch the video attached to this blog.Heating pad can also make the bird comfortable.Give water which is at room temperature and keep the bird indoor.

      • Thanks for your reply, but it is too late my parrot has died last week on 25th.

        Your blog is good, hope in future it helps if we get another parrot

  25. I thought the author has written right at the beginning that she is a female professional. Why is that most comments are for a Sir? Do Indian fail to acknowledge that women can give great advice as well? I say this because as a consultant on a forum, I also get addressed as Sir. Or are Indians just gender insensitive (skewed towards women)?

    Anyaways, I like to read your blog as I have budgies….the chirpiest of my 3 budgies has become dull after a dip in a lice killing solution…I hope it does not die. Its unusually quiet and is perching forward, like it going to fall off – I have seen them do this when they are very sick.

    • lice killing solution…Does that mean white vinegar and water or some other chemical.Was it prescribed by a vet?If yes what was it?

    • You need to feed the bird 2drops of water melon juice every 3 hours(instruction in the video attached to this blog) and use heating pad or lamp for 10 mins and then watch.The bird is poisoned, that’s why its falling..Chances of survival is very less but one bird had survived even after eating ant poison.Think positive and try your best,


  27. christine king Says:

    hi, i have a starling that i raised from an egg , Harris is now 1yr.
    all of a sudden he is plucking the feathers from his legs only. The vet gave me creams to apply, and an anti parasidic drug. nothing is working. He is eating well and seem healthy . can you suggest anything.

    • Yes,boil neem leaves in water after washing them till the water becomes half.Cool it and strain the water.Spray neem water on your bird with plastic hair spray and let the bird dry.Also feed a drop of the neem juice once a week with plastic syringe without needles.

    • Or leave some neem twig and dried leaves in the cage for the bird to chew.Neem is the best anti-parasitic herb.

    My 2 months parrot have Loose motion and he is become week there is any medicine plzz help??

  29. very very helpful and knowledgable web site

    • Hi there…i have a white face cockateil around 10 months or so.for 2 months plus it was sick.she was vommiting and tremendous weight loss,there was slimy and stick clear liquid coming out from her
      Mouth when she vomits.she bobs her head front and back before she throws out…this was very frequent for the forst month…after approaching my breeder she passed me doxycyclin(broad spectrum anti-biotic) it became better with close observation.is there any herbal remedy to cure this…i suspect she is having bacterial or yeast infection.

      • Tulsi (holy basil) leaves cleaned and boiled in water.Add few drops to water melon juice and feed the bird with a plastic clean dropper.Tulsi leaves should be a part of birds regular diet .Also use neem tree bark as perch so that the bird bites it when sick.

  30. Sanghamitra Says:


    Thanks for the post. It is really very useful. I have recently got a cockateil. It was doing fine till yesterday. But since today morning it is not eating properly. Also not been very active since morning. I have also noticed that his left eye has become red. Is there any infection? Is there any possibility of the infection spreading to humans. I have a kid at home.

    Please let me know what kind of treatment should be provided to him.


  31. Hi…

    how much Ginger(Adrak) juice should be added to the birds water at night prevents loose motion when they are sick.

  32. I have a green Indian parrot….she’s been with me for the 13 years.she has always been healthy and very attached to me .she is more like a dog or a cat. I also have a problem…..I have been getting these rashes on my arms and legs since I have had her …..the doctors say its bird mite……I always thought it was heat rash….I always get them when the humid weather starts. Please tell me what to use as the rashes I have this year are bad. I am in Pakistan so I have most of the herbs found in India.

  33. hello! i had read this article before;for bird liver problem i used to give ayurvedic liver tonic since she has sweet tooth & she likes them but the male is rather hesistant to taste it;then i had purchased a bundle of fresh shoe flannel material to put inside the cage & get them washed everyday ;it is soft on feet & protects the parrot in winter;i cover the cage partially & keep them close by my bedside;i keep a watch on their activity;they love to talk & admire themselves on dressing table mirror;i gave the neem bath a try ;it helped ;now i am having conjuntivitis problem & am taking treatment ;i suspect some health problem in bothof my parrot in spite of giving good diet seem fluffed up & may be stressed out too though they fly freely in my room for 4-7 hours& get into cage on their own when i am ready to sleep’;i love them for their companionship;i indulge my parrot whenever necessary with peanut,coke at times,chip,icecream,gulab jamun,almond ,biscuit& ladoos;they are games for it;my female parrot loves to play for hours on soft cloth;earlier i made paper ball to keep her occupied & clean marble stone ,watch tv or sit on my laptop or cane stick used to chase away predators;i give their leftover food of american corn ,chapattis,dal,fruits at the backyard to feed other birds;i set up a whitewash stand at the back & placed 2 bowl of fresh water everyday along with bird feed grain & plenty of biscuit;all birds love biscuit very much so i have dedicated myself to give some company to my parrot when tied outside at highlevel for 1=2 hours ;then placed an empty coconut shell of water on ground;birds come & have bath when they please & sit on trees for hours;a family of different birds activities are interesting to watch in the backyard;i put on music for my bird ;the male tries to speak out few words on hearing music which seem a little enthusiastic ; i also set up perches of lemon tree,eucalyptus,neem tree for them to fly & sit on meshed door & windows of my bedroom;that’s my life with parrots;other parrot do come & see them;but i worry about the safety of my parrot,their food & shelter& whether they are capable of looking after themselve is a big question in my mind;i saw bird sanctuary & thought of freeing them but realise the parrot may fight or may get traped by malis who could sell them;dont know what will happen in future;that’s all for now;i want to know how long you kept parrot as you seem knowledgeable;my female parrot refuses to be friendly with male parrot & pull his tail or attack him;he is gentle ;any solution?

    • Do not keep the birds by your bed side.The feathers will affect your eyes and fresh air in the room is a must.You should drink neem water daily for one week to avoid bird flu.How did you come to know that they have a liver problem?Who suggested the syrup and what is the name of the syrup?What I find from your message is that you are a very loving and kind person.While finding a partner for the bird,one should choose the bird which seems very friendly to each other.Generally we choose by the look of the bird.I had zebra finch and parrots for a long time.Then I trained them to live in the wild and they have given birth to babies which are all around my house.But I won’t advise that to everyone.

      • I’m gla you could see your parrot;You must have set her free at the time of mating season;Maybe i should have allowed my parrot to be free at the time of mating season but i wasnt willing to do so;Then 3 weeks back after egg season being over i felt she has not been ready to mate completely though sge tried to but in the end i became her object of affection;the male parrot did his best to woo her & after the period was over i felt sense of anger or fustration from male parrot;i was hurt & realised they wanted a change & maybe needed to b free like other counterpart;i saw a female visitor parakeet & my parakeet realising turned a steel katoris to see her own reflection ;i felt that it’s time to set both my parrot free;As i saw my parrot she seemed happy with another but then flew away ;so also the male too;Now i’m realising i am feeling lonely & longing for their companionship;i am unable to feel happy in spite of 3 weeks passed by but i used to see her on tuesday as this was the day i released both of them;my heart breaks when i see so many predators around;Some parrots do move around in different direction ;i know i should keep myself busy but i ‘m sinking in my heart without companionship;i’m not ready to keep dog as it died painfully;All things upset me & i feel heavy in heart too;i am deaf,single,do social service teaching deaf;I’m on vacation& i find myself looking out for my parrot & lose my peace of mind at times;Please advice;i give M-LIV as it would be readily taken by female parakeet as it helps to stabilise whenever i see the health is affected ;Oral rehydration for male parrot is readily accepted;they enjoy mint flavoured POLO & saunf ;it was their favourite ;Now i ‘m left to look after backyard birds ;Maybe u can tell me how u must have felt to do without parakeet;it tough living without them;

      • The bird once trained to live in the wild can live happily.Please do not worry.Yes,I used to put feeds around and people used to inform me about their whereabouts.One day I saw their babies,with the same unique color which was rare.I was very happy.

    • Eucalyptus tree is poisonous for bot birds and humans if it is eaten or the oil is swallowed.

      • I used neem perch ,mango,be or lemon tree perch in cage but outside mix of eucalptus or mango tree ;i read it is helpful for birds with cold;the parrot would chew wood or newspaper from back of dressing table mirror;the paper used to be changed occsionally;Sometime i would give twig of pomegranate tree to chew which needs to be cleaned;i made some videos of my parrot;female parrot used to trust me ;she trustd me with eggs & looking after her ;Later on, i felt too sad & sorry for my sweet male parrot who was very devoted to female parrot ;i could see & sense his hurt feelings & then felt it was neither fair to him nor to her though she did try her best to mate with him but was scared perhap;Then i could sense ,disapointment on parrot behalf due to her attachment with unfertile eggs for a month;i felt helpless & restless for days altogether,;my sleep would get disturbed ;Then i thought how things would be better if she was free to fly & to live life along with male parrot outside as they did try to sneak to fly outside number of times which made me understand their restlessness;Then i took step to give freedom to live a better life ;It wasnt easy for me to accept male parrot being angry with for the first time in my life after 2& a half years;i did feel hurt & surprised too as if he is saying -”u dont like to give us freedom,do u?’ i decided some respect must be gven to their feelings ;When time was right ,i saw a female parakeet visitor & were looking & talking to one another ,i then decided to free them;they were overjoyed at being released ;Though after giving freedom ,i realised i seemed to be wavering in my thoughts of taking important decision of freeing themThen, i felt i saw them coming especially for me every tuesday ,the day i freed them;i am hoping that they remain safe & happy ;i hate predator killing small birds in the backyard where i give them biscuit,peanuts,roti& some fruit & water to drink & bath though i felt unhappy today for pretty small green birds which had little parrot like tail in the mouth of predator with very long beak;i hated this which i saw with my eyes when i had gone to see if food was there;then i saw this small green tail bird looking at empty bowl & as i went to get it ,i didnt knew she would be caught from neighbour house ;i was griefstricken;Please tell me how to remedy the situation;i stay with my parent & wish to put up bird house but there is none availaible & i may have to use my mind to get it made;Thank u for listening to my heart grieves;

      • I have updated this article specially for you.Since you are a creative loving person,you will like the pictures of wild bird homes,feeders that you can make, using stuffs which are available and of-course create a much better one.Just give a quick scroll to this article once again.Keep the feeders mounted high using iron wire with sun shade and also the house must be hung,Just take a quick look at the pictures in the article above.

    • You can do one thing which I have done.Put feed/ water daily.Also put a pot in your backyard.The birds will come.Infact I have a set of wild birds to look after now along with their baby which was born in my house garden.The baby is sleeping in my house right now as the parents trust me.I have put the baby in a basket and covered it with a thin dupatta so that mosquito don’t bite them.In the morning,parents will come and feed them.I don’t have to do anything,Their last baby suffered from mosquito bites and that led to wart.It survived because of neem water.This time I am not letting the babies sleep in the nest with mosquitoes.

      • It nice to hear about the same unique face& colour ; it does make u happ to hear such things;May bless them ;God has certaily given us beautiful creation like birds of all form;i admire them & am consistent in my effort to take care of wild birds & most of the wild birds have become familiar to me & come around me when i go out to see them;it makes u feel nice too & u have something to look forward too also;

    • Since you are a bird lover,birds will always be attracted to you.Very soon,you will have to take care of wild birds.

      • Thanks for your article & response to my reply;i read all your new addition ,article & suggestion of bird house from bottle;i will give it a try ;As i’ worked as an art & craft teacher i will use your ideas to make it which will take some time ;Today i got a surprise to see a parakeet who suddenly made a presence in front of me while i took out my car ;i realised today being friday,my parrot used to see me doing prayer every friday & give them favourite gur ;i also used to pray on their behalf too earlier & still do the same as i feel close to them in my heart ;it seem that they might have taken notice of food put in front yard twice daily as they must have seen other excited bird too having their feed;She mustt have made her presence , for gur which i had put ;i hope they r ok with wherever they are;I am praying to god to take care of all my birds;

    • God will take care of your birds knowing your good intentions.

      • When i see my bird after a week ,does she miss me;i have always felt her affection for me ;i also wonder whether she is feeling the same as me as i became surprise to see her one day at some place as the parakeet caught my eye in sunlight looking at me & doing things like familiar body movement i spoke to her also then left;that made me cheer up;i felt she must have sense my restlessness to see her so she must come ;She must have also liked me as much as i like her;Her behaviou was such that if i showed any preference to male or male showing indifference she would chase him away to show him his place even if i dont say anything much to him or her for that is how i observed carefully over the years & understood her;May god bless her & keep both happy!Your understanding is all that matters to me;thank u!

      • DO my parrot wants to come back in cage?they visit once in a week on neem tree eating neem fruits but with dangerous prey bird coming regularly & sitting on my tree & chasing small birds ,i start worrying about my parrot coming there occasionally;i had to warn them by loud clap & the parrot fly away to some place;i find prey bird family coming in group of 4-5 with very long bend beak ;about 5-6 inches;sometime eagle;it is bothersome;And safety of birds bothers me;I had to keep food at ground level park as the cat climb the wall & hide behind the tree in my house ;So the parrot hasnt come down on ground level;i’m doubtful whether they see food below tree kept on ground level of park;The grain bottle feeder is also tied to some branches & tree trunk but corn kernel has been used well under tree shade ;Now i’m feeling concerned about wild bird ,squirrel safety as i do not know why ugly bird of prey come in front of my house often;they are fast flier too;i do not have a solution for this;I wish god help me to find solution to my problem;they are becoming bothersome bird of prey;i worry about parrots & rest of the darling birds too;i hate to see them harmed but feel helpless * & bothered too;i’m doing the best i can but wish tht i chase prey bird away ;Any solution?

      • The feeder must have a plastic plate on the top as cover.It becomes difficult for predators to attack.The hole in the plastic plate can be done by any iron smith.Tie a clay pot on the tree with iron wire.Rotate the iron wire round the neck of the pot.Attach 3 to 4 wires to the ring and then move it backwards to fix it to the tree.Put a plastic chair or table in shades area,put your open cage on it.Tie the cage strongly to the chair or table so that a cat attacking can not bring the cage down nor have enough space to sit on the table or chair to attack.Put feed and water in the cage.When you make homes out of pepsi/coke bottle or big jars,put a bigger shade on the top.This will secure the bird house.Plant some flower trees around the neem tree.Predators needs space to glide and attack.This way you can save your birds.My experience is birds do come back if they do not find the other environment suitable.I prefer birds who enjoy both environments.They come back to have food,water,medical treatments and sleeping and enjoy the day outside.

      • Thanks for the idea regarding water bottle bird home ,bird feeder but i’m doubtful parrot will come to such low height of tying cage to the chair ;it could be risky as i used to tie their cage at a height of 3-4 feet above my head;i’m not sure if the parrots are interested in staying in cage;how do parrot adjust in rainy weather;do they ive openly or in some tree hole;then i have a sick pigeon who was moving around in terrace who was wet in rain but couldnt fly;it used hode under tank; Due to cat frequenting the terrace,i manage to get pigeon in the cage with the help of maid son who found it be dis oriented &loses bance sometime after rotating several times ;it takes feed of bajra,broken rice somepeanut,corni just placed a solution of mixture of aloevera &neem powder;dont know whether it drank but the newspaper was wet;what do you want me to do?should i give neem drops as i see some tilting movement of pigeon neck &moving round &round &then loses balance sometime;waer is placed on the cage with a pinch of neem powder;Any suggestion;how can i attract my parrot as crows & other birds are territorial regarding food kept out for them;Will the parrot ever come back as i see them once a week;i loke to see my parrot comfortable too but worry how it is possible for them to come in such rainy weather as they catches cold if they remain out;how do i help with my thoughts?would a wooden cage hanged up in place of cage help or both?

  34. I noticed that my parakeet is sneezing (more often then normal). There is nothing else visually wrong with him, (beside calling the vet) what exactly should I do for him? I don’t mind doing numerous things, so any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • The bird needs warmth,clean water which is changed frequently,, hygienic condition and a good diet.Oranges will give vitamin C.Water melon is a must.Keep the bird warm using heating pad but sufficient space to move in-case the heat is unbearable for her.Yes,you can contact your vet.

  35. NOOR-UL-ARFEEN Says:

    Respected sir, i am from Pakistan and i really love your article. it was of a good help for me. i am a true birds and animals lover.i really appreciate all that knowledge which you had delivered in your article. i would love to have more information on this topic. further more, is there is any way to contact you instantly for any help? I truely respect you and would appreciate it. thank fou..

    Waiting for your co-operation..

    • NOOR-UL-ARFEEN,what is mentioned above is just preventive measures because we do not have bird doctors in India at the moment.People really get panicky is such situations.You can contact me anytime on my youtube channel mentioned on the top of the article or send in the message here.Thanks for your support to birds and animals.

      • NOOR-UL-ARFEEN Says:

        Hey doctor..
        Hope you will be fine. i want to know that my female finch was having fever, i gave her a drop of ibuprofen that night. and after that i gave her same syrup in water for that whole night. she was having loose.motions. i tried ur ginger and garlic advise. her motions are over now. but still she ia bit fluffy and lazy. what should i do? Should i mix boiled tulsi leaves water mixture in her drinking water?

    • Make her drink water melon juice every 3 hours with syringe(without needles),just 2 drops.Do not feed her excess of water melon juice. Put a bulb above her nest to keep her warm.Leave space so that if heating is excess she can move.Place fresh feed and water for her.Make a sack of warm salt as mentioned in the article above.Place layer of even cotton cloth on it so that heat is bearable.Touch it and see if it just feels warm.Now this is risky,because some hands are trained but some ain’t. The bird can rest on it.Heat dehydrates the bird so make sure you give her water melon juice.Be extremely careful when you do this exercise.Do not give refrigerated juice. She should be fine within 2 hours and chirping.If you can add some tulsi juice in the water melon juice,it will be good.

  36. NOOR-UL-ARFEEN Says:

    I boiled 20 tulsi leaves in approximately 1 cup water, till it reached to more than a spoon. and than i mixed that remaining tulsi water into finches drinking water about half a spoon in half a cup water. is it fine or i dis sumthing silly? And for how long should i continue this? Waitng for your reply doctor. hope to read it soon

  37. Hi, I have a sick canary, it sits at the bottom of the cage, it doesnt sing, its real weak at the legs, and recently it shakes all the time, the vet gave me some drops to put in his water, but nothing has helped, can you please tell me how to treat it and why does it shake all the time? Thank you.

  38. NOOR-UL-ARFEEN Says:

    Thank you doctor for your kind reply. i want to ask u some more things if u dont mind. what to do when birds are sneezing? Even i am providing them sufficient heat.

  39. I feel there are two people inside me – me and my intuition. If I go against her, she’ll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.

    3)After having meal he makes a squeaky noise
    4)He is sneezing very badly

    6)do u have any solution of how to prevent avian flu…please help….i am really worried about my baby parrot…..THANKS

    • And he is very sleepy ….

      • Mayank Saraogi Says:

        solution to all your problems are in the main article please read carefully

      • Mayank Saraogi Says:

        if its urgent try these methods,

        1)use ginger juice in the water as suggested in the article for the loose motion also use home made yogurt(Dahi) and mix some turmeric powder(haldi) in the yogurt. This should help with the Motion sickness.

        2)Give foods high in vitamin A to fight the flu and also give some cinnamon(daalchini) powder mixed with honey.

        3) Most importantly keep the bird warm around 30-35 degrees,

        4) since the bird is not active feed him/her watermelon juice to give energy but don’t feed too much.

        You will need to get a syringe(used for injection) throw away the needle and put the above ones directly into the beak every 3-4 hours until the problem is solved.

    • Mayank Saraogi Says:

      It can be a number of reason like infection, disease or if there are two or more birds they might be fighting and pulling out each others feather another reason could be that the bird is itself plucking its feathers, kindly provide more details if the bird is very old it might be falling due to age as well

  56. Hey any treatment of Bird Mites on Birds and Human. It seems me and my parakeets budgies are infected by bird mites.

    • Solution is there in the article.

      • Along with drinking the neem water do we need to aply the same on the body also to get rid of the crawling sensation and itching which normally starts in evening and night?

      • Put a white towel on a big glass jar full of water and a lamp over it in the night time.You can see the mites as they will get attracted to the light and crawl on the white towel.

    • Human precautions against mite infections.
      1.Do vacuum cleaning of your beds.Put the mattress out in the sun on a dry day.Throw off the vacuum cleaning bag immediately.Put dry neem leaves under the bed.
      2.Clean you entire house floor with water mixed with neem water.Especially under the beds where dust accumulate.
      3.Wipe out the dust from all the show pieces.
      4.Take bath with warm water mixed with neem water.
      5.Clean your scalp with a jug of water and one cap of cetrimide.
      6.Drink Neem water on empty stomach early morning for 1 week.
      7.Spray neem water in the cage with sprayer and wipe off.

    • Mite infections are dangerous.Humans can also die.Do a through cleaning of the full house.

    • Extremely sorry for replying late. Wash bed-sheets and clothes in hot-water.


  58. I love your website. When I was a child I saw my parents live healthy, spiritual lives. My father and mother respected and understood nature in a very deep way. It is a great blessing to live accordinly with the laws of this universe. I see the same wisdom here. Vedic knowledge is great! I have budgies myself, so the subject of birds is dear to my heart. I know when one truly and humbly seeks Truth, great truths are revealed. Gardening and planting is extremely important. Bless you for sharing your knowledge on this website. I am a loyal visitor but often shy to comment, however this website is too wonderful for me not to leave a comment. Thank you.

    • Thanks for writing to me.You can also share your youtube videos if you have created one.Thanks to your parents for having you groomed so well that you care for nature.

    Help needed…..

    There is a bird at our residence, and it is not keeping well with its skin.

    His feathers are all gone, and the skin disease is spreading.
    3/4th of his body is out of feathers. As there are no feathers, he is unable to fly too..

    Everytime he keeps itching.

    He is not able to sleep peacefully due to itching.

    We cant see him suffering. 😦

    Kindly let me know as soon as possible some good ayurvedic medicines, so that the bird is out of irritation, and gets back his feathers and is healthy.

    Awaiting for your early reply.

    • Mayank Saraogi Says:

      Hi Divya, i don’t have much idea about pigeons, but the spider which you are saying, i think is bird lice, bath with neem water is the treatment.
      Are you sure that your bird has got PMV ??? Take a look at this link on PMV it might help


      More over i would like you to register your self in this forum for pigeon related queries and Help, the forum has got a lot of informative article on pigeon and highly experienced pigeon owners http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/

      • thank you! i will look up ;as a matter of fact i was referred to some poultry boarding office by vet specialist & i am reluctant to show it there ;i was watching the symptom in pigeon & had been looking for solution on internet;thanks once again;

    • Spider like insect is always there in wild pigeons.How ever giving regular bath once daily with few drops of neem juice not oil will get rid of the black insect on pigeon.

  70. I read an article that neem oil drop & garlic oil seem helpful in solving many diseases of pigeon ;however i gave a drop of neem oil ;then thinking i didnt put the drop properly or it may have gone in& i decided to give another proper drop ;after seeing the symptom of neck twisiing & resting ,i gave few drops of ayurvedic herbal teas & some water containing disprin which is kept by the side of pigeon;i read a neem drop is to be given per day till the pigeon show some sign of improvement;i never thought i would have to treat this sick pigeon as i have to be near to feed food in the mouth if pigeon is not able to feed itself properly ;just to be sure that pigeon doesnt remain hungry;i get restless with worry sometime whenever i see pigeon unwell;i get concerned but this is all i can do;Do you think neem water drop is a better idea or i should continue with neem oil;otherwise i have neem powder;it seem a small task but i feel agitated using neem oil drop & i dont know whether neem water drop would be a better option or should i stick to instruction explained;i feel garlic capsule too big to give;should i cut & give in drop with dropper?Hoping for your reply,

    • boiled and cool neem juice is the best.

        Thanks so much for all your advice. I have been treating a rescued sun conure for a stubborn respiratory infection ( I think: He gets winded after a short flight and has a clogged sinus, it seems, by the sound of his breath) with echinacea and goldenseal and a bit of oil of oregano. I also put a bit of colloidal silver in his water. He seems to be doing much better – it’s been about a week – but then get’s hoarse again and tonight doesn’t seem so hot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. It seems like I should get neem and watermelon juice. A conure is bigger than a finch. Dosages for one would be very helpful.

        Thank you,


  71. Ma’am,
    We have a stray peacock who has developed a swelling in the sinus below the right eye.It has been there for about 3 weeks now. As a result, he can see only from the left eye, and also is not able to close its beak. So he is unable to eat anything. We’ve tried to feed him bread in sweet milk but he can’t get it down his throat. There are no bird vets in our area.

    Please suggest an ayurvedic remedy for him.
    Thank you.

  72. We have a stray peacock. It has swelling in the sinus under the right eye, due to which it can see only through the left eye.It has been there for about 3 weeks now. Due to the swelling, it can’t close its beak and hence is unable to eat anything.
    I made a comment 2 days ago regarding the same, but its not there now. There are no bird vets in our area. So please suggest some remedy to bring relief to the bird.

    Thank you so much.

I put fresh food and water everyday. i hate seeing birds sick. He was so livily. I wanna get him back to what he was. A quick remedy will solve my problem.

  79. Raheez from kanya kumari Says:

    Dear sister. I hope you are doing great with lots of prayers and love from birds.. I need your guidance to recover my favourite budgies to stay healthy for more then a decade. I had bought 4 pairs of budgies in 2011. Now i have only 3 birds and lost 5 budgies very sadly. I donno how they died suddently one by one after some intervals. From the three one have broken legs. To make it as 2 pairs i bought one a month back. Now totally 2 pairs. The problem is tey all are flying singing but most of the time staying sleepy with head facing back side. Standing in one leg for most of the times. Staying at floor of the cage. These all makes me to restless. I need them to stay healthy. Fortunately i saw your blog. I couldnt catch them to feed drops.of tulsi and neem so i just mixed the drops.with water and gave it in a water container. Sprayed neem water on their body and all over the cage. Is this a right thing to do? What will happen if excess of tulsi and neem water given to them? Please send your valable suggestion to my mail id raheezahmed@gmail.com. If i give neem and tulsi water daily will it be harmful to them? Can i give neem and tulsi leaves daily with their food? Im waiting for your prompt reply sister.

  80. Hello, the graphic at the top of this website post is packing a bit unusual to me? I used sending a message however it bounced rear.

  81. Is there any way you can contact me? I think my bird sprained or broke her wing? I was wondering if eucalyptus oil is safe to apply for healing or pain? Bird is not in pain but eating and drinking and bathing but cannot fly or spread the wing. Please help me, thank you

    • Eucalyptus oil is poison if swallowed.To fix a broken bird wing first wash with anti-bacterial neem and water. If any bleeding dab a little cornstarch/wheat powder to control. If there is any signs of infection take the bird to a veterinarian. Wrap a 12 inch strip of veterinarian bandaging tape around the broken wing. Leave the bandage on for 2 to 4 weeks making sure it is not too tight for the bird.

  82. well I wouldn’t even ingest Eucalyptus myself, I was wondering if it was safe to apply it on the wound? no broken skin so either sprained, strained, or broken. Wing is drooping, she fell on it 4 times thereafter since trying to fly so now she’s contained. I have looked online and acquired same info u have given me. Now my next question…I am curious now u say that about Eucalyptus? If it was poisonous to them then why do they eat it in their native? The branches/bark and leaves are safe for them? SSoooo now i’m thinking is it because it’s in a more concentrated form? I know eucalyptus is unsafe for other animals but now i’m on the fence about birds. I have heard one lady apply euc. to her birds and also uses it as a incense oil burner for aroma in her home?

  84. Hello, I have a alexander parakeet(parrot), from yesterday he is not eating well and always stays fluffy with his feathers, vomiting is also seen sometimes, and also he is not singing like my another parakeet. I have read your blog also, but please give me some advice what should I do..Also I am providing additional heat,some sugar water sometimes, boiled egg…I will highly appreciated, if u provide little advice. And yes your blog is wonderful.Very good information for birds.

    • this is not medical advice! I would strongly advice you to seek veterinary assistance from an Avian specialist. For the mean time I would say pedialyte, there is this stuff from Dr.Fostersmith online that you can buy and I’ve heard folks in your situation swear by the stuff. I would get it expressed delivery to you if you can or if you strongly care about your psittacine. They are truly expensive pets to own. Even a vet can run you $70 just for the checkup alone then tack on other expenses such as medication or surgical instruments, examination, xrays and the list goes on. You offered these things BUT is your bird accepting them? vomiting is not a good sign =(
      Your bird could have ingested something poisonous it seems. I would remove him or her if you already haven’t from the rest of the flock and place in a incubator or a recovery cage if you have one….keep a bulb on the bird. I use my tortoise bulbs that have UVA/UVB and usually recovers them faster…temp has to keep around 80-90 make sure it is warm at all times. update us when you can.

      • Thanks for reply…

        Yes my bird is accepting guava, peas, egg yolk, egg shells…
        He also urges to eat more sometimes and starts running in cage here n there, like being normal. But after sometime he again goes fluffy and take naps. he is drinking water also normally. But he is not that active he used to be or like my another parakeet. Also he is not singing.

  85. did you separate him from the rest of the flock? Did you get a bulb or a basking bulb to place above him or her? Any heat source will be fine but if you want a fast recovery then you must keep him warm and cozy. Your bird will heal faster under a bulb. birds can die within a short matter if you don’t take proper precautions. If you don’t want vet help then I suggest you buy a bulb placed on top of the cage in a dome lamp…i already have one for my tortoises and have a hanging device so that the bulb isn’t touching the cage. IDK what type of cage you have but don’t let tthe bulb touch the cage. I suggest you buy this stuff too http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=5059+5992+25823&pcatid=25823
    let me know how it goes or if you need further help.

    sorry hinduismglance lol…i don’t mean to steal your thunder but noone is responding

    • Yes I am providing additional heat regularly, but I haven’t separate from flock because my another parakeet behaves erratically when I gone to remove sick bird. For vet ,I have talked to some vets but none of them are avian specialists, they are saying that your bird got cold, provide additional heat and give medicine called “TETRAMYCIN”, I have purchased the medicine but did not given to my bird, as I don’t know how much quantity he needed, docs saying one tablet. Even some vets don’t prefer to give one tablet to dogs, how can I gave my bird a tablet. That’s why I prefer Hinduismglance method of recovery. Today, he spoke for some time. As said by you pedialyte I have ordered that also but also there are some methods to prepare it at home. And yes I have also provision for bulb at cage, but I am providing heat through heater from some distance while also covered cage with blanket.

      1.Which is more appropriate heater from some distance or bulb at cage?

      2. Is it necessary to separate him from flocks as he is showing some positive signs? Because my another parakeet is too much attached to him. I am afraid in separation another one doesn’t harm himself.

      And thanks for your help and time..i highly appreciate it…!

  86. do the bulb! Some heaters omit toxic fumes. the bulb should be near 6inches…my bird loved the bulb at around that height for recovery and sometimes she would go closer to the bulb. I use gas heat in my home but it’s central, not a portable heater. The reason you separate the bird from the rest of the flock is because the other birds will get sick too! Then you will have a whole flock of sick birds. As for that tablet…birds weigh a few ounces so you need to find how much to administer….maybe I can check my books..I am currently studying Veterinary Technician.
    While I look this up does your bird have discharge from the nostrils? What does the poop look like? How old is the bird? Is he able to perch if you can tell or what is that like? Can your bird climb up the walls of the cage? As for the meds, did you mean teramycin?? And the tablet, can it be diluted with water? I think for birds you might have to let it dissolve in water. Also did you take a look at the link I posted from Drfostersmith? Are you able to order from there? IDK your location so IDK if shipping is available in your area or not =/
    IF your bird is old then you can dose them with whatever the vet gave you but if your bird is old it can be going through arthritis or not much you can do. If your bird was absolutely really sick with the flu or something else (bacteria related) and your bird has been sick for over 48 hrs then I think your bird might be ok if you administer to him now. Since your bird can’t leave the flock then just leave the water with the meds in it and the rest of the birds will be ok if they drink it. If you are unsure then please remove your bird so that you can treat him alone….since you don’t want to remove the bird then leave the water in there and maybe they can all sip it if they might catch the cold as well. make sure the tablet is dissolved before you give….some vets give this in liquid form so it’s roughly half a tsp to a liter of water but since yours is in tablet form IDK the dosing….IDK how big the water bowl is you are feeding them from? How many tablets do you have? If you have more than one then I would say try cutting it in half and dissolving in their bowl and give that to them…if no signs of progression then I would say a whole tablet in their bowl. I don’t want to give you advice as I am not a veterinarian so I cannot treat or diagnose your bird but they are just my suggestions. My bird hurt her wing not too long ago…she is fully recovered and can fly but at first I wasn’t sure if it was broken but there were no fractures or open wounds so it was just a sprain thankfully! The bulb helped her recover FAST along with perching on my computer for added heat lol I hope your bird is good and hope it’s a speedy recovery…please let me know or update us when you can.

    • Hello…
      I am from India(Lucknow), And yes it is TERAMYCIN. my bird is able to move freely in cage. No There is no discharge from nostrils, and my bird is 2.5 years old only.

I have been giving him tulsi water and he did show signs of partial recovery. Yesterday I gave him neem tea and he did eagerly have it. However today he was sitting on the cage floor and refused to eat the guava. I have given him the 20 tulsi leaves boiled in water and cooled till it was very small quantity. He had a drop. I sincerely hope he recovers.

  107. Hi- thanks for your article on neem treatment for birds. I have two cockatiels and was shocked to see a “mite” squirming around the feathers of one of them. I did the neem treatment and now they don’t scratch. But they still scratch behind their heads sometimes-is this normal grooming or do they still have mites? Thanks.

  117. I have a parakeet (Lilac) who I was told by a vet that it’s a boy. He has always shared a cage with a cockatiel (they get along well), but there are no other parakeets in the cage.

    Lilac seems to be carrying eggs (I have love birds that lay eggs, so I know what it looks like). The vet tech says that it is possible far a male parakeet to have eggs. Weather that be true or not, my main concern is to avoid egg binding. Lilac is eating and acting fine, but I want to do what ever I can to make sure he has the egg/eggs. I have a heat lamp on one side of the cage, so he can sit in forint of it if he wants to, and I just put a nesting box in there also. Is there anything else I can do?

  118. Thank you so much for your response about my parakeet Lilac. I was incorrect in thinking that it was egg binding that I had to be concerned about. My vet says that he has a cyst, or a tumor, and that the thing to do for that would be a surgery, which is very risky (he could die). Lilac is eating fine, and the only thing I notice that he is doing differently is that he seems to hold his foot up (from discomfort) occasionally, and he has also started to cling to the top bars of the cage at night (which is highly concerning). It was suggested that I have an aspirate test done to see if it’s a tumor or a cyst, which could result in bleeding, and would just be done to determiine if it’s a cyst, or a tumor, and how urgent surgery would be, which as I said I’m trying to avoid, and trying to heal him in another way. I have contacted a holistic vet, and am trying to find otere alternatives to shrink the growth. I know b17/laetrile/amygdalin shrinks growths in humans, and dogs, but that birds are very delicate, and haven’t found any information about b17 and birds, other than that millet and grape seeds have b17, but I doubt Lilac would eat enough of that to get enough to shrink a growth. Do you have any suggestions for me? Thank you for your time, and kindness.

  135. Ayan Bhattacharjee Says:

    I have a couple of Indian Ring-necks, a male and a female. Off late, the male bird has been infected with some eye problem, due to which it keeps one eye closed. The eye has turned red on the outside and the outer eye skin also seems loose. I have been washing the eye with rose water regularly, though the progress is slow. It opens the eye for some time and then the same problem returns. The parrot is eating normally and is trying to hide its eye from me, pretending its totally fine, by looking at me with the other eye, which is totally fine. Though it ails me when I have a look at the infected eye. Please help.

I took it to the doctor he gave some antibiotic and some vitamin and liver tonic. For a course of 5 days. After five days he seemed much better but suddenly after two days. He had the same symptoms again. We gave it water with tang but we suppose it hardly or never drank it. The next day we took it to the doctor he gave an injection and asked us to repeat the course of the antibiotic enrolled hoxacin oral liquid. But on the way back in hardly 10 mind. The bird was panting and gasping for breath and collapsed. We went back to the doctor and he told us the bird couldn’t handle the medicine and was weak so collapsed. I don’t understand what happened what was the mistake. I want to sue the doctor for this mistake if at all has been made
