for the birds suffering from scaly mites...

segregate the birds in three groups...

1st group
add some sulphur 30 and calc flour 30 to some water and let the birds beak for few hours.

2nd group
add some silicea 30 and calc fluor 30 to some water and let the birds beak for few hours.

3rd group
don't give any homeopathic remedies. This is the reference group.

Observe the changes in next few days and report back.

for the injured bird....
add some arnica 30 and rhus tox 30 to some water and let the bird beak for few hours for 3 days.
If the injured bird also has scaly mites also add silicea 30 and calc fluor 30 to the medicated water.
Observe the changes and report back.
