    So there is no way to check or see them, then?

    A vet might be able to check for them under a microscope.

    1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per day per bird will really help with skin condition, feather quality, help the immune system and keep the digestive system in good condition. You don't have to offer it up daily, although you might at first. Then a couple few times a week. I use the liquid Coconut oil, it also comes as a solid. The liquid does not harden and is easy to add to feed. My birds eat wet mash so I just add enough for the daily feed. But you could drizzle it over their treats, eggs, greens, even dry feed, ect.... The liquid is tasteless so they won't know they are eating it.
