Hi,

One of my gouldians (who is currently breeding successfully) has a health issue with his legs.

I´m posting pictures and I would appreciate your advice.

They are a bit on the scaley side. Ivamec treating him may help. Or bathe them daily with a mix of 1/2 veg oil and 1/2 dettol. Messy but effective. How old is he?

He must be like 2 years old at most. I bought him 17 months ago.
Yesterday I was searching and found that I should put Carmex on the legs until the crusts fall down and then put undiluted S76.
I have Carmex. Well, in case the problem is scaly leg mites.
Do you agree with that treatment?

Never used anything but the products I mentioned. If he is only young then it must be scally legs not aging, so a light treatment is indicated.
