Just a question I thought it might be good to put out there as I've been pretty sick recently. Do any of you worry about handling your bird if you're sick? Can they catch something from us? Some of the time I wasn't up to having Doc out much anyway but sometimes I think he rather enjoyed the extra time I was home from work...hopefully at no cost to his own health?
Humans do not transfer cold or flu viruses to their birds. In fact, there a only a couple of uncommon viruses that can be passed along to them, but it is very difficult to do so. Feel better and I bet that he enjoyed the extra attention!
