Many together.: Tar shampoo is very effective, but you need to clean the scalp first with a mild shampoo, and then use neutratar or a generic afterwards.

Unknown: There are many studies of penises and much work studying terns. However, I am unaware of any study of the terns' penises. Most birds do not have a penis. Most birds have a little lump called a cloaca. So it is unlikely a tern would get peyronies disease. ...Read more
