What happened to my Lovebird? Helpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp






These two days, my lovebird seemed that it feels itchy...
She eats well, poos well.
But just appears so itchy...

What happened?
What can I do?

Most likely she's molting. I suggest to get her vet checked though, just to rule outt mites. Give her a bath to help relieve the itch.

I agree! Looks like moulting. But a vet check could probably diagnose for sure.

Just a minute ago, I gave her a warm water shower with hairdrier dring.

Now, she seemed comfortable and the hair looks great then.

Thanks for the replies... :..)

If you spritz her with warm water mixed with a few drops of aloe gel she may get relief from itching.

Re: What happened to my Lovebird? Helpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp

Well, if you always give your bird baths with warm water and dry her with a blowdryer that might very well be the cause of her itching because the warm water and the hot air would dry out the natural oils on her feathers and skin and make her itch. That's why you always read that birds should always be bathed in cold or room temperature water only and allow to dry naturally in the sun. Next time, use cold water with aloe vera in it. It will help a bit.
