I been using frontline for donkey years on finches and canary. All is fine. You need is a small drop not entire bottle. See the toe texture the darker or rougher that means the older the bird is. Young bird are like lady young and smooth.
Quality is always better than quantity.
Don't crack under pressure.

Tanin you confirm all my doubts.
Let's start with age, I had doubts already at the time of purchase but the seller being a friend I have not dared to doubt his word.
Mites, I ran a treatment last November and one recently in early March.
The cages where they spend the winter are a little 'small.
Do not use Front Line Combo because I avoid to pick them up. Use Ivomec diluted 1: 9 with Propylene Glycol, anoint a moth or a shackle with a drop and I feed.
Eating, as a staple food use 'Extruded Nutribird UNI Komplet' data at will.
As a complementary food use the 'mash for insectivores UNI Patee': one teaspoon per day.
Also in the run-up to do playback flour moths, crickets and moths of honey.
Three times a week do the vitamins in the water.

Now the female has demonstrated the will to want to nest, and I opened the cage of the male.
I own a couple and the other has no such 'aesthetic problems' (beak and feathers)
I think the issues are related to age and that it is also affected by the so-called 'French silent' that is, the continuous replacement of the pens.
He has a ring which bears the date 2007, the seller told me that he was placed randomly in the past year at the time of birth.


Hi Eltacco,

It seem that nutritions wise, it should be fine... possibly it is not that young bird... but with your good treatment, I really hope that this female shama will get back to its optimum health soonest... hope you can update the status to us from time to time :)

by the way, do you normally let your bird have their daily bath? I find that they will really like it (well, in my place the weather is very hot everyday :lol: :lol: :lol: )
Best Regards,
Tanin

Hi Eltacco,

Here is some picture of my male shama... this one is 'black leg' type so please disregard the colour... but the talon and the beak is like that... this male is matured male and not young anymore.

p/s: I rearrange the pair so I catch this male out

Very nice. I felt warm country bird feather are more settle. Humid environment and frequent bath makes it all the better. Lovely photo.
