Our African Grey parrot has been picking then destroying her feathers in the last few months.
We tried spraying her with water, spraying her in the shower and even started an oral presentation medicine from our vet. So far nothing had worked to deter her from destroying her feathers.
So I tried the Aloa Vera feather plucking spray and to my surprise seen a positive improvement in 3 days. I’m very pleased and hope this will deter her from further feather plucking.
I highly recommend this product to other parrot parents faced with the terrible realization of seeing their bird rip out and destroy their beautiful feathers. Thank you for a wonderful helpful product.
I just started using this with my lovebird. It appears to soothe the spot, and I’m hoping that this along with her collar and the birdie herbs helps to break the plucking cycle.
Great product! Makes my birds feathers soft and they're not itchy anymore. It's also a good quick spray bath too.
Sometimes it is hard to give feedback on products for plucking because it takes more than several months to begin seeing if something is working. I use the aloe vera in conjunction with bee pollen, avicalm, palm oil and from the drug store 3 antibiotic ointment for where her skin was scabbed and itchy, spreading it thinly on her wounds. I think the most important thing is that her abrasions don't turn into an infection. I have been using all that for about 2 to 3 months. Yesterday I took her to the vet~and he said her skin is baby soft (well that means her skin is softer than mine!) She passed all her tests showing her very healthy. I feel the items I am using on her especially the aloe spray are helping. Now I have to see whether she plucks the new feathers that are coming in. She is growing back her collar feathers, and along her back between her wings. It will take a long time for her other feathers to emerge. My attitude is that I have obsessive compulsive habits, so if chewing or plucking her feathers remains a habit for her, I can at least protect her from any skin infections and or itching~the palm oil, I feed all three of my parrots everyday, also the bee pollen. Everyone is healthy. I feel the aloe spray is important.
