You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. Silver sulfadiazine creams are relatively nontoxic to birds and so are often chosen as a topical antibacterial. Chronic ingestion, however, has been reported to cause agyria (silver poisoning). It causes a bluish discoloration of the skin, feathers and mucous membranes. A one time inadvertent ingestion of a small portion of the cream should be well-tolerated. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
