A separate place is best right. So the tiel I posted about. The lady is getting tired of it. If the owner isn't found soon she is going to give it away. She stated this from the beginning. I have offered to foster it and continue to look for the owner. It is the only bird in the home. If it doesn't look sick when I get there do you think I should attempt a quarantine anyway.

I already know that my mom and kids won't change and or shower between interactions. Also it is impossible to get a separate air flow.

The best i could do is no direct close contact.

What are the criteria for determining if an off site quarantine has been adequate?

Should I keep them separate anyway since the "new" bird might not be staying.? How long should I keep looking?
 
Definitely quarantine! Minimum 3 months preferably 6. I would put her in a separate room and if you are worried about family members not being responsible enough to disinfect between birds then I would say the new bird is off limits to them. Could you shut off vents to the separate room? Quarantine is best for the health of both birds.

Telling them no access won't work. There's only each of our bedrooms a bathroom and a common area.
