No. Her leg is back to normal. Could have been the result of Coco picking on her when she was trying to sleep the other night.. he nips her feet.. I don't understand why they need to fight over who sleeps where, there's plenty of room in there lol. Such a bully. Or maybe she sprained it somehow. Either way, it's corrected itself on its own.

She's doing better today, being active and playing with toys instead of fluffed up sleeping on a perch like she was a few days ago. She seems to be picking at herself less. I got a second lot of meds since the first lot wasn't enough for all four of them. I hope she's getting enough down for it to work... I'm no expert at administering oral meds. Her appetite is good.

Just wondering, how long should I wait before I take her back to the vet for another checkup?

I think we rechecked at 30 days, but it somewhat depends on the treatment, so check with the vet.

Where can I get the 100% Aloe? And how much do you mix with water?
Thanks!

Mabel has returned to her usual mischevious self but she's still plucking her pin feathers, although not as often as before the treatment. She has regained 5 grams and seems pretty happy.

Not sure where you can buy 100% aloe vera... your best bet is probably buying the plant itself. I used the flesh of one medium sized leaf to 500ml of water (the size of my spray bottle), and apparently it lasts for a week in the fridge.

Maybe she needs another cockatiel to talk to her yesterday i asked the man that owns the petshop ive been at and the only thing he said is that some feather pluckings cause are loneliness that is true cause when i bought 5 cockatiels for my 1 white face cockatiel he stopped feather plucking but he did it again because all of the cockatiels i bought for him was still young to breed so maybe mabel feels lonely because other parrots plucks their feathers until they die because of lonliness

Mabel is not lonely, she shares a large cage with three other cockatiels. She naturally chooses to spend time with me when she's out of the cage rather than her 'tiel friends, and is quite fascinated with people and will step up for anyone, even people she's meeting for the first time. She is a very outgoing, special girl with plenty of personality. If you'd looked at my signature or read my profile you would have noted that Mabel isn't my only bird.

Mabel is slowly feathering out again . I will be taking her back to the vet for a follow-up appointment in the near future to confirm her recovery.

Poor Mabel! I am glad to see her recovering, since the place where she plucked off all her feathers seemed really severe. Hope she recovers completely very, very soon.
