This was a wild FS it has died and no vet in town would take it. The girl found it in the spring as a baby she was moveing and could not take it that is how I got it. I found out tonight that she never cleaned the cage or took care of it. when I got it....it was clean smelling little did I know she knew I was comeing to get it and gave it a bath. her and her parents need a good kick in the rear. I was leting it get use to my house and my pets before I handled it very much just kept lots of food and water in its cage and kept the door shut to the room to keep out the cats and dogs. when I wiped it down with a wet cotton ball the first time the ball came covered with red mites so that is telling me as bad as it was they knew this and I think that is why they gave it up when they did. Also during this week I lost 14 of my 15 finches they were next to the cage so I wonder it the mites did that too. it the mean time all the cages have been bleached
