Thanks! I'm going to try the aloe and apple cider vinegar. As I said before barely
any of the oil came out on them anyway due to it separating from the water.
Managed to ruin my spray bottle but luckily I have tons of them lol Should buy
stock! Besides giving them baths even with a tiny bit of it would break the bank ...
the aloe and vinegar is much cheaper and frankly smells better too! Besides I clean
the bottom of the cages w/ vinegar so I always have it. As for my fids eating the
palm oil they seem to HATE it! I've tried it on toast and pasta and on their pellets
and bananas and so far they all eat around it lol Smarter than people gave them
