    Red face rescue attempt

    Guys, I am trying to save a cockatiels life. We have 3. One of them from an egg. A neighbor had 2. a male and a female. The mate escaped, the female lost her egg and the poor thing was left alone and neglected. We took her in when she was already in bad shape. She was the newcomer and the underdog and she has been at the bottom of the pecking order. When she came she had already lost her tail feathers and then she started developing tumors on her wings. they are bleeding and feathers are quite destroyed. We have very few bird vets here and one said she has mites. BS!!! I could be some metabolic malfunction and I also found an article to use Antibiotic cream (Garamycin) which we did. The tumors are getting better but I doubt she will make it. And it seems contagious, since one of the others shows the same symptoms. Anyone recognize the condition?
    SORRY I DO NOT HAVE URL LINKS TO PICTURES So, how can I paste a normal picture please... Thanks How can I paste/ attach one

    Re: rescue attempt

    It's difficut to know what might have caused the tumors and bleeding. Without a complete history of the bird's life, including diet, daily care, etc., you are at a loss as to how to help them, and I fully understand your plight. I really do not have any advice, but just wanted to write a short post and will hope and pray you will find someone who can give you good advice and help you in someway.

    Go to top of home page and click on gallery. You can upload pics there. Or, go to a website called tiny pic, and create an account there, and upload pics to this website URL.
