I am concerned that we are sending a message here that it is okay to go against veterinary advice when it comes to quarantine. It is important that we take the proper precautions and not base our decisions on our own conclusions. Especially when almost every vet out there advises that you quarantine your new bird for at least 30 days. Not everyone is going to be lucky and bring home a healthy bird. That is why it is so important not to undermine the importance of quarantining. Even if you get your bird from a very responsible breeder, quarantine is still considered essential. Ozzie’s breeder knows the history of all their birds and still feels Rio should be quarantined. Shouldn’t that tell us something? Someone may read this thread and decide to not quarantine, and they may unknowingly have a sick bird that could infect their whole flock.

Quarantining a bird is not easy - it is a big responsibility - it is incredibly involved. This may be the reason why some prefer not to do so, or they feel they do not have the time. Whatever the excuse is - it is not good enough. I know someone who purchased a “low risk” bird from a reputable breeder who had no history of sick birds. Good thing she went to the bother to quarantine because the bird she picked out landed out having Psittacosis. The bottom line is that there are enough sick birds out there that vets find it important to urge us to quarantine. There is not a good enough excuse not to quarantine. But there is one exceptionally good reason why we should - to make sure you protect your flock. I am not telling anyone to do this - the professional experts are. On this forum we normally urge people to take the advice of their vets. This is an important time to do so.

This shows you what Psittacosis is and what it looks like. Any new bird that you bring into your home could possibly have this.


If your bird has it, you can get it.
