    This roo has been congested on and off for weeks and weeks now. I have him isolated now, however, none of the birds he was in with got his congestion. Now he has white mold type of growth out of the corner of his eye. I suspect he's got an upper respiratory fungus infection. Now, what meds will take care of such an infection? I know Copti detox is anti fungal, but I'd like to also put him on a powerful anti-fungal drug to wipe this out for good. Back on the gqf he goes.

    No one's ever treated a fungal infection in a bird before?

    Thanks Minnie. I have some Olive leaf powder in my cubbard which I started giving him. Also I had pau d arco which also is anti fungal. This will hold him out till I get that stuff from the link you provided.
