I just got lost of taste and smell yesterday and it has been freaking me out as well. I feed him and take care of him so he has to stay in my room but i try to wash my hands if I have contact with him and wear a mask when I’m close up. I also am very congested as of this weekend. Hope you feel better!
I discovered that Cracker Jacks still taste great!!!

COVID-19 And Pet Birds – Pet Birds by Lafeber Co.


When it comes to pet birds, at this time, there is no evidence to support that it could transfer to them. Given that birds and mammals are two largely different groups and the virus is not even transferring well between mammal species at this time, it is unlikely to be a problem for birds. As previously mentioned, coronaviruses are usually species-specific. This makes it more likely that the virus cannot spread from humans to pet birds.
