Hello all. Just wondering. Have any of you ever ended up buying a bird, a young one (a year or less) that ended up being sick at time of purchase? (For example, you buy a young Senegal, perhaps they were fluffed up all the times you saw them, a sign of potential illness, but you overlooked it, and a day or so after taking it home, you do a new bird check up and find out the bird is indeed sick. How did it end for you? Many seem to say if the bird is young, especially around the time they have recently weaned in their own, and indeed are sick, that this means that they are much more likely to die young or be sick on and off over their lifetime.... have you all found this to be true in anyway? Either way I am in a similar pickle with a bird I have a deposit on. Other birds from the same clutch as him show no symptoms, but "mine" does. I am 95 percent certain I will be switching to another bird, even if the cbc tests, gram stains, chem panels, cultures, etc, end up being clean or even if the symptoms completely clear up following some type of treatment from the vet..... mainly because if it IS true that young birds who were sick at a super young age are more likely to be sick at a higher rate than other birds over their whole life, I will steer to another bird. Let me know your stories friends! Love this supportive community. So is this assertion a myth or quite true?
