This EE is about 4 weeks old. I've noticed that on her wings, near her back, her skin seems really irritated where her feathers are coming in. Is she ok?

to cure mites etc. give them a Diatamatios(sp?) Earth bath(a box or something to roll in. If you have a feed store stall dry is DE and works.

As to the red think of the bottom of the feather like the quick in dog nails. There is blood there and on light colored bird looks irritated.

Good luck
