    Introduced new bird without Quarantine

    Hey, As the title says, I (stupidly) brought a new bird (IRN) into my home and placed the cage into the same room as my current bird (budgie). I was naive to the fact that you had to quarantine birds before introducing and it’s now been >24hrs since I got him. The person I got the bird from...

    Can birds get covid?

    I tested positive for Covid-19 this morning. I been seeing mixed answers if birds can get COVID-19 or not. Does anyone know if I can spend COVID-19 to my cockatiel? If birds can’t get COVID-19, can some people give me tips how to entertain my bird while we quarantine in a room?

    To quarantine, can I move other birds?

    I recently got two new Cockatiels. They are currently in my room with my parakeet. The only other room in our house that the cats can't get in is my brother's. The problem is that he doesn't have room for the standing flight cage the Cockatiels have. He can fit the cage with my parakeet though...

    Can a respiratory infection spread through toys?

    Hi, there. First post. I am planning to adopt a green cheek conure once I find a good breeder in Georgia. The problem is, I have a little budgie who had a respiratory infection a few weeks back. He has since recovered (stopped antibiotics last week) and is back to normal, but I am still...

    How far is far enough?

    Since everybody's sequestered around the house during Taco and Kamara's quarantine, all in very random places, I'm starting to wonder how the fids will be sorted once quarantine is over. The same room is too dangerous even with insane filtration right? Would adjacent rooms be okay?
