Iodine Deficiency in Birds



As always, follow your veterinarian's advice to reverse the iodine deficiency. Lugol’s iodine -- one drop for 250 ml (1 cup) of water -- is used often to combat this condition.




Including iodine in your bird's diet will help prevent iodine deficiency, as well as goiter.
