    Hello! Thanks to all of the great people here on BYC, I have sucessfully gotten Vasaline on Jasper's feet. In the day time he wont let me get near him, but at night, I scooped him right off the perch and got the Vasaline on him! I wanna do another round tonight, and once I do, I'll get more pictures. How much progress have we made? You be the judge! Boy, do they look gruesome and horrific!

    BEFORE TREATMENT:

    I will do the treatment tonight and hopefully get new pictures in the next day or so.

    Please comment!

    Looking good! He must feel much better.
    You rubbed the vasoline up the leg, a bit into the feathered area as well?
