2 Replies and 1049 Views Nebulisers - for FREE!  1049  2 Started by  Dave V There seems to be an increasing occurence of Aspergillosis at the moment - I know not why! However, one thing that can really help a suffering bird is a Nebuliser and I feel everyone who keeps parrots should have one, along with F10SC. The correct strength to use this is one part F10SC to 250 parts water (i.e. 1 ml:250mls.). MAKE SURE ITS THE CLEAR F10 SC and NOT the green one! Back to the nebuliser. I got mine from Freecycle for FREE! Freecycle or it's sister site Freegle operate in most large ...

2 Replies and 816 Views What a lovely birdy day!  816  2 Started by  SharonL Well, Bryan was away early today taking part in an archery tournament, so apart from the usual shed load of housework, I have had a very indulgent birdy day. SH sennie is a total poppet. How many safehouse birds do you get who choose the Harrisons over AS20 She also had her first proper shower today. I pumped the wood burner up and got the room temp to around 20deg so they would be warm enough when wet  and systematically showered the whole flock. Last was sh sennie. She ...

4 Replies and 1174 Views We need your donations!  1174  4 Started by  Victoria Whitfield C'mon guys we need your cash...........You will all be aware of how many birds are donated to BL with some quite serious health issues and far more often than we would like we inevitably lose some to Rainbow Bridge. It would be truly wonderful if we could raise the cash for a small plot within a pet crematorium so that all those babies, some of who have only known the love of a safe house for a short time had somewhere to go. Please consider donating to realise this wish so that all those babies...
