Does anyone know anything about this product? We have a bottle of it that we inherited from the previous caretaker of our U2, but we don't think it was used much. If any of you have any experience with anti picking sprays and pitfalls that may relate to their use it would be much appreciated.

I searched the forums for "quell" and "anti picking spray" with no results, and google was similarly useless (just a bunch of commercial sites).

Thanks!

Hey -- we went ahead and tried the spray and found that it had little to no effect. She stopped picking/preening the sprayed areas for about 15 minutes, recoiling from the feathers when she would try and wiping her beak on a nearby surface. After that time period elapsed though it was right back to the old habits.

The only product I can remember having talks about is called "Pluck No More". If you do a search, you will find what several members said about it. Very mixed results if I remember right.

If any of these products worked consistently, there would be a lot of happy members and a few rich inventers! :rolleyes:

I agree Charlie. The only one I am familiar with is Pluck no more and I tried it on my african grey and I didnt really see any difference.
