Re: I introduced my young CAG to my new baby 'Too today :)

Ratzy I really don't think there is any need to be spoken to like that, I'm not asking you to convince me of anything. I have my views on quarantine and you have yours because of your very sad losses, I wont argue about something I don't feel I need to defend. Thank you for the advice though

Thanks Mel, absolutely it is a personal decision, as is the way everyone on earth cares for their animals big and small, no one has bad intentions as we all do what we think is best.
I see you have dogs and snakes! I used to breed Royal pythons (love them!) and I have St Bernards and Labradors Your sulfer crested is gorgeous! We nealy got one instead of a U2 but the sulphur was a bit older and a bit feisty so we chose the younger U2. We also have a pair of Vosmaeri Eclectus who are finally starting to breed, it only took 4 yrs to decide they loved eachother haha.

Re: I introduced my young CAG to my new baby 'Too today :)

I am 100% with Ratzy on this topic of quarentine! I have bred birds for over 35 yrs. I have bred and shown dogs for over 20 yrs. You cannot even compare these two Apples and oranges! I have never lost a bird due to illness for lack of quarentine. I can tell tell you of at least 50 birds that harboured unseen diseases and were passed on to established pets due to lack of quarentine. Most were babies brought home. The "best breeders" are not always the safest. Young birds harbor illnesses due to poor immune systems. I wish you luck on preventing your birds from getting diseases from eachother. If I remember correctly this Too was pretty dirty when brought home. Makes me wonder how thier husbandry was in thier aviary. What ever the case your grey has now been exposed.

Wow your house sounds a bit like mine - crazy haha. It's fantastic to come home to so many critters... big & small.

She just had porridge on her from the previous feedings that the breeder hadn't washed off. (Her son had fed the bird that day and wasn't as skilled as his mum at it.) The breeders husband is also a vet. She is in very good condition, eating very well and has settled immediately and is very happy. .
I wouldn't judge someone as not caring for their birds because it had some food down it's chest, just as if viewing a puppy I wouldn't worry if he had been playing in the mud, it's part of life. I have no doubts as to either birds health and no concerns but thank you anyway for your advice.

Haha Mel it sure is!! I also have horses but they don't live with us here as we run a game reserve and erm I don't want them eaten by lions Yep our animals are our kids!
