The eustacian tubes help us equalize pressure in our ears, so it is probabvly normal that the peroxide came out his beak. Take care.

Thanks, Eggcessive.  It looked really weird when they peroxide came out his mouth and seemed to really bother him.  What you said about the eustachian tubes makes sense though.

I'm so sorry.  Sometimes as much as we want to, we just can't fix them.

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.
