I know, this is the rabbit forum, but I suddenly got a problem with my cockatiel. I thought somebody here may know about them as well. He got scared by the sound and flew and got caught in fly ribbon. I read advise to use vegetable oil to remove glue and then to wash bird with dish soap (Dawn liquid soap was recommended) Oil worked well to remove glue, then I decided I would use free and clear "Seventh generation" detergent, as I haven;t found any free of dye Dawn in stores. I worked small amount of detergent into affected feathers and then rinsed him off from the pitcher (with warm water). In the morning I saw that he is still very oily. Any advise in this situation? He looks sad today, but I think he was pretty stressed.
