    Hello, can anyone please help me with some advice. My little golden partridge seems to be getting picked on by my 2 lavenders. Her comb does not look right but she is eating I think still laying as I get 2-3 eggs a day of the 3 of them. Any advice appreciated. Many thanks

    Hi :welcome there is a condition called ' favus ' , much like ringworm that chickens can get. An anti fungal cream will stop it in its tracks. :)

    Thank you so much, will pop to the pet store today and see if I can get some cream. Is it contagious? My other 2 birds seem ok at the moment? X

    Miconazole or tinactin applied daily should do it. Yes it is contagious .
