    Gouldian finches stuck in moult or sick?

    Hi folks,

    I got 3 gouldian finches each of them are approx 6-7 months old. They seem to be stuck in moult.
    I am giving them high quality seed of versele laaga. Egg food, calcivit and D3 in liquid form. Also give them probiotics once a week.
    Though i offer them fruits and vegs but they don't seem to eat or like that. Also provide grit and sand in one container inside cage.

    Just uploaded their youtube video here. https://youtu.be/ycM2oCqbtAk

    Doesn't seem to help. What can i do to make their feathers and color appear normal and of good quality?

    Thanks.

    Hi, I've heard of a vitamins supplement called "MutaVit" produced by Versele-Laga.

    Directions for use
    1 even measuring spoon (= 1 g) Muta-Vit per 250 ml drinking water or per 100 g ORLUX softbill food or eggfood.
    1. During the moult to promote the formation of the feathers: three times a week.
    2. During preparation for the show season: For 4 consecutive days.
    3. After a treatment with antibiotics or other medicines: For 5 consecutive days.
    4. In the case of decreased appetite due to bad metabolism: during one whole week.
    Store in a cool and dry place.
