Here's the suspected infected bird. I saw some stuff on SCATT? What do I do about the cages? Rewash them in hot soapy water?

Any and all advice is appreciated, as there isn't an aviary veterinarian within a decent distance (and they'll want to run tests I can't afford... crazy)

Here's a pic from a while back before I realized plastic perches aren't great for them...and before they really picked on Biskig.

Case in point, there's Snow's cere. Could the current markings have been caused by fights?

basically that says they ned to go to the vet and get a specific antibiotic but you can also try putting vasolene or parrafin wax on it but be very very careful not to get it on the birds feathers as it wont come off easily One site i saw said to use a q-tip and make sure you check his legs, vent, and wingtip for simillar markings. if it doesnt start to get better in 3-5 days with the vasolene you have to tkae him to the vet. It will kill him eventually but before it does it will disfigure and hurt him. Also he can transfer it to one of the other birds by feeding them. if he isnt feeding any of the others chances are he hasnt transferred it yet but it can take years or months to show up...

your birds are beautiful though smile

Here's an updated picture of Snow's cere. I treated it just an hour or so? ago, and I'll get my boyfriend to help me distract Snow while I do another application of mineral oil before bed so he doesn't eat the mineral oil (that could be really bad).
