Re: Quarantine?

True, most people don't and are taking a risk regardless. If the new bird does have an airborne disease, it is best to know asap, hence the tests. EVERYONE should have these tests done. Believe me, I had a PBFD scare and I then realised that the quarantine most people do is NOT a quarantine against these airbone deadly diseases! We need to be careful and trully have another area to quarantine....like a detached garage at least(which I use now for quarantine until all is cleared). After the deadly diseases are checked for, your only worry is hopefully a cold which is easier to diagnose and not too dangerous for your fids.

Re: Quarantine?

The scare I had was condemning my whole flock!!!! Thankfully, it was a wrong positive and my flock is well and healthy! Never been so scared in my life!!!

Re: Quarantine?

We don't have an avian vet in our podunk town, yes I have used varoius searches. I have new one in bedroom and the rest in the living room right next to it. Small house. there is a vent that connects both rooms, no closure, so I'm not quite sure how effective I'm being. I lost one bird recently, my budgie Demetri. I got him from stupid petsmart just four months ago and now that he's gone and I look back, I believe he was not in good health since the beginning. Everyone else is still doing good and everything has been sanitized since he passed and he was seperated when he began showing signs. The whole thing is just frusterating, you feel like you never can win. But I treat my birds holistically so I believe that has given them the strength to not succum to whatever took him. More-so preventative medicine than anything. I guess that's all just a side note.

Re: Quarantine?

I also wait 4-6 weeks or longer even after a clean bill of health from the vet. Better safe and all that
