So, i have a Lutino peachfaced lovebird who won't stop picking his legs. We took him to the vet about 2 years ago for it for a ridiculous amount of tests, gave him a giardia treatment just in case, but to no avail. the picking comes and goes, and just recently we discovered that he's picked both of his legs almost bald.
I bought this product to spray on his legs. I'm doing it morning and night. It seems to be working, any time he goes for his legs he comes back up with a repulsed headshake, but i still want a little feedback. The instructions say spray from ~8", but if i did that, i'd spray the whole bird. so I spray it really directly and make sure to cover his face.
Have any of you guys tried that Better Bitters product? Any result? Good or bad?

Thankee

What other things have you tried so far? I've never used any products like that myself. I just see them as a bandaid over a gaping wound, so to speak, but I could be wrong. I just don't really have a grasp on how they work, I guess.

Do think think it could be a hormonal thing? Or does it seem to come about completely randomly?
