Hey all - excited to join this forum to learn and share my experiences with Barby, most recently with a PBFD scare (positive test after having intro'd her to our house and other GCC, then cleared 8 weeks later). She was adopted from another owner who had to relinquish her and another bird as they moved overseas.
Feel free to point me to threads with questions on the PBFD topic - after having gone through emotional hell and back, I hope I can help others in similar situations.
Also: Barby is a feather mutilator, barbering her feathers relentlessly. So I'll read threads on this and likely come back with some questions for your experiences :)

A little update: now that Barby has settled in and both birds are cleared for PBFD I'm charting and photographing her barbering (status / changes).
I did a search for threads just about feather barbering and guess I'll start a thread over in the health forum in the coming days. Hopefully it'll prove helpful to those looking for close up shots of the damaged feathers etc.
She's going through a molt right now, with over 20 feathers lost each day, and new pins appearing. So yay!!!

Thanks to everyone for the welcome :)
