    I don't believe I'd be jumping on this bit of advice without
    talking to my vet first. The tiniest amount of Dawn, even when
    cleaning up animals after an oil spill, makes huge amounts of
    suds. A "quarter cup"????????? I don't think so. I also don't
    think your vet will tell you to put bleach on the bird either.
    Be very careful.
