    I thought I would post the Avian Health Network link so that people can learn more about the devastating disease, PDD. This link does a great job at trying to answer questions about PDD and gives some very emotional accounts of people who have lost birds to the disease as well as tons and tons of information about how to deal with it.

    The reason I’m sharing this is because I don’t think we talk about PDD enough or how horrible it really is and I can’t state strongly enough how important it is to be as aware as possible. Please take some time to visit this site and educate yourself more about this horrendous disease.

    Below are some specific links on the site that I found very interesting, helpful, or just a way to hit home what this disease is really about. The site itself is so full of information, it’s easy to get lost and I wanted to point out a few places to get started.

    Frequently asked questions about PDD - Avian Health Network: PDD FAQ
    Stories about living with PDD - Avian Health Network: Living with PDD

    On a side note, does anyone have good updated links to PDD? I don't know why all 4 links in the original first post are '503 service unavailable' for me... :confused:

    I have updated all of the links except for the Yahoo group as that link is still active.
