I see no reason to use it. If you used enough to kill Parasites your birds can get Salt Poisoning, if they drink any. Salt is added to ponds and Aquariums to kill parasites, because of the Specific gravity of the water changes, and "Implodes" the Parasites body. But to work it takes a lot of salt, over an extended period of time. JMHO Dave

Try 20 Mule team Boraxo. Mix one table spoon (three tea spoons) to a gallon of water. It works great and will not harm the birds if they drink it.

Hi

I was told that EPSOM SALTS cleans the blood by my mentor.

He always told me to check the OILCAN on the back of the birds, and when you can notice any colour in it, it is time for EPSOM SALTS.

I use 5gr to a litre.

Hi talpog

It is situated underneath the top coverflights at the base of the tail , where the tailfeathers are linked to the body of the bird.

I realy dont know how to describe it better as English isnt my Mother Tonque !, sorry, maybe someone else could assist?

yea, you've got the place where it is correct. It's called an oil gland and the birds spread it on their feathers when they preen.
If you even notice a bird picking around on the rear end......that's what they're doing.
