gouldian finch bald spots

My lady gouldian finch has bald spots - what could cause that and what should I do about it?


Is there a treatment I should be applying?

Thanks



Bald spots are most commonly caused by squabbling or arguing. One bird is picking on another. If that is not the cause, I have read that Gouldians and other Australian finches need more iodine than other finches. While I have not had this problem and am not a veterinarian, If I were you, I would research iodine supplements for lady Gouldian finches. Hope that helps, Jeanie
