Want some great reading material to help with your birds? These are a good start :) Bach Flower Remedies for animals,Complete guide to successful sprouting for parrots & Natures Medicine. Natures Medicine is a 'human' book but there's a lot in it that we can learn from for our parrots too. Just a few of my favourite books :)

A good tip from the Bah Flower book. They recommend you continually give your birds rescue remedy or something similar to it as birds are highly sensitive & develop bad behaviours liking plucking & other nervous behaviours. I give mine RR about once a month.

Hi. Rescue Remedy contains small amounts of the flowers: Rock Rose, Impatiens, Clematis, Star Bethlehem, Cherry Plum. In a 50:50 solution of water and Brandy. You can also now buy non alcohol Rescue Remedy and other Bach flowers. Rescue Remedy is the traditional crisis remedy and something you can safely give to your parrots on a regular basis. Not only is it the crisis remedy, but it is also a very good prevention. It doesn't matter if your parrot is well, giving them Rescue Remedy often will help them deal better with any and all sudden crisis’s that occur in the future.

Rescue Remedy is the best known of the crisis remedies but all remedy makers have their version of this as well.
The rescue remedy 'normal', or for pets is recommended for regular use for parrots, even if your parrot appears well. Rescue Remedy can safely be continually used in preventions as well as in emergencies. There are also other Bach Rescue Remedies for pets, like Pastilles and others. These are not recommended for use for parrots.

Yes my birds get it once a week. It's something safe that you can add to their diet or water weekly.
