Hi, Few days ago I notice That one of my budgie lost his feathers and its rough and also his tail is become smaller and less active. Today I caught him to give him suppliement but he bite me roughly and I get few drops of blood. So now, I want to know That if he have French Molt (Polyoma Virus) can it is spread to human from birds?? Can I get problem from this bite?? Can I infected by Polyoma Virus like Psittacosis, avian influenza etc. At this moment I am very tensed. I uploaded his picture. Is it actually French Molt (Polyoma Virus) or normal molting??? Thanks 52013999_2226019787717853_5101276032057475072_n.jpg 52087549_2226019797717852_4689299418950664192_n.jpg 52013999_2226019787717853_5101276032057475072_n.jpg 52087549_2226019797717852_4689299418950664192_n.jpg 52144338_2226019837717848_4554137270591946752_n.jpg 52469043_2226019881051177_5788642825742581760_n.jpg 52598466_2226019871051178_7657586093566459904_n.jpg 52605516_2226019857717846_4889893147796045824_n.jpg

Your bird looks very unwell. You should get it to a vet quickly.

Your poor bird certainly does not look well, I hope you manage to get him to a vet ASAP and that all will be well with him.

We can't tell you if your bird is sick or not. We are not vets. Get that bird to a vet now. It is your responsibility as a bird owner. This life is in your hands.

Remember, if it is french molt, every other bird he has been anywhere near will also have to be treated. Get to the vet!

No one can diagnose your bird over the internet. A proper vet check will look at your bird's feathers, check his nares and ears, listen to his heart and breathing, feel his keel, weigh him, and assess his overall condition. We can't do any of that from a photo. Your bird needs to see a vet.

It is especially important to get professional treatment for your birds because they really suffer with this condition. It is also painful to them. @monjur sayad
