Does anyone know if Salix is safe to use - I have some in my garden and it has grown huge and will be getting cut back at the end of the season, and thought perhaps I could use this if I dried it out before using.

Thanks

i think this is a great post Barrie thank you

And i for one used to have plastic perches and even those awful sandpaper perches when i first got a bird - i read books but the advice back then was different and before we citisie others we must think that many of those who are doing these things may not have the access to the net or not feel the need to read new books or magazines having kept /breed birds for years.

What we should do is to try to educate the shops and stores and those working there - they can make better and more money on good value wooden toys and perches and shreddering things.

PS i agree this should be a stickie

I inherited a tiel with severe bumble foot. I put him in the bath with some warm shallow water to soften the crusting and help to clean his feet ( it was severe). While he was happily wandering around in the bath, I prepared a piece of sterile gauze with the antibioti cream and wrapped it firmly around a short pirch. He would climb straight out the bath onto the gauze and the cream. I kept him on the pirch for as long as i could so that the cream could soak into his feet. No rubbing, no stress and he was good to go within a short period of time.
