I feed my (feather shredding) M2, Harrison's Adult Course pellets (which she loves). Lately I've been fretting over her dry skin. She chews a bit on her ankles sporadically, sometimes making them bleed. And under her feathers, her skin flakes a little. For about a week now I've been cutting off bits of my aloe plant and rubbing the juice on her ankles. They look slightly improved although that might have happened on their own. Since I started the aloe I haven't seen her chew on her ankles; this could be from the aloe, or maybe she's just not in the mood to chew her ankles. I also shower her weekly. I saw someone recommended an aloe based spray in another thread, but boy does she hate to be sprayed or misted - just the sight of a spray bottle makes her run. I wondered if she has enough fat in her diet. She does eat people food daily and gets maybe 5 nuts a week as a treat (almonds, brazil, walnuts, hazelnuts). Or maybe I am worrying over nothing. Any thoughts?
