Hmm so I've been reading about it and it seems that you shouldn't use it in water for birds everyday, only use it when you suspect possible intestinal problems. It seems that GSE has a very acidic ph so you don't really want to be adding something very acidic to their system without having something else to balance the other alkaline side.
Apparently GSE can kill parasites even giardia, and mine skin problems, its even been known to help with mange. It's really quite amazing but I think maybe it best just to give it every once in a while. Like maybe give it for a week every 6 months so that you kill anything that might be in their system. It's too bad because it would be nice to use GSE simply to purify the water but it seems theres not that many studies done of it so I wouldn't want to really test that out.
However I have been using it as a lysol, and to wipe down the cages, and to get the pesticide off their veggies.
