Diagnosis: Total lack of nutrition. This bird was rescued from a Parrot Sanctuary. He was the only finch among many larger birds.

Treatment: “Midnight” was started on a quality diet after his rescue and completed his transformation in approximately 3 months. Midnight’s new diet consisted of the Morning Bird Product line, especially the Miracle Meal, which he couldn’t get enough of.
Diagnosis: Balding due to inadequate nutrition during previous annual or juvenile molt. Owner was told that she was 9 months of age when he bought her.

Treatment: After seeking help from me, the owner put this hen on Feather Fast, Calcium Plus and Miracle Meal for less than 3 months. Her transformation is nothing short of miraculous. Read more about her in Why Is My Gouldian Bald?
Diagnosis: Calcium Mineral Deficiency, secondary to molt problems. The deficiency may be caused by an underlying bowel problem if the diet is good. This is not a fungal problem, but a beak growing abnormality.

Treatment: 3 weekly treatments with S76 and then onto the full Marshall Health Programme.
Diagnosis: Stress Bars along wing feathers.

Treatment: There is no treatment to remove the stress bars from these feathers. However if there is no problem when the next annual molt occurs, there should not be any stress bars on the new feathers.

I believe that these stress bars were caused by an inadequate diet rather than a stressful situation at the time that these feathers were growing in because of the number of bars involved.
