Sweetie was brought to our private bird rescue on May 4th 2014 suffering from a broken leg which had occurred on April 23 2014 but had not been treated. After much investigation it was discovered that she had visited a Vet. in Brampton, Ont. Upon contact with this clinic it was agreed upon to take Sweetie there for surgery on her leg. Unfortunately due to the former owners reluctance to have it treated or surrender her for almost 2 weeks it had become very infected. Sweetie under went surgery on May 13th to amputate her then hopelessly damaged leg. She has rebounded wonderfully and is going to live a happy, healthy life here with our Sly Flock!.

HI SWEETIE, WE NEVER DID THAT QUARRENTINE THING WHEN WE FOUND OUR TIEL DIGGER. OF COURSE MAXI TIEL WAS THE ONLY BIRD THEN. DIGGER WAS TAKEN TO THE VET RIGHT AWAY. THEN WHEN I CAME HOME I WAS NOT QUARRENTINED EITHER. OF COURSE I HAD VET GUARENTEED FROM MY BREEDER. THE ONLY TROUBLE MOM HAD IS WHEN SHE GOT HER PARAKEETS FROM PET STORES, THEY DID NOT DO WELL.

Here is another vote for you!! My mom spent the day at the Delaware Bay, so she has been very busy. She volunteered and help to band endangered shorebirds. She is doing it tomorrow. Today she worked with Sanderlings and tomorrow they are going o try and target Red Knots. It is a lot of work, but she knows that the work is helping to protect and learn about these rare shorebirds. Have a great weekend!

  Hi again Ms Sweetie, from your pal Jen Lynn
...do you have a lot planned for Memorial Day W/E, we love the cookout idea with family and friends, dad has been invited to several different friends homes, but he told them all he has already made plans to spend the day with the things he loves most, namely us birds! I don't think he will be visiting our family grave sites this year, but not for lack of want to, rather for a lack of strength! TGIF dear friends, let's all make this weekend count, let's fill it with happiness and love, and spread it around, our world needs more of both! Give our love to all in your happy home, CYA tomorrow...

Much love on Friday, Jenny, ZigMan, & our Dallas flock

  Sweetie day TWENTY-TWO
Happy, healthy Friday to everybirdie. It's looking to be a great long-weekend for all my BC friends in the US. I am very delighted by the responses you are sharing with us. I hope everybirdie takes the time to read them too. There is a lot to consider when it comes to sharing your home with a Companion Parrot. When my Momma Deb started with birds, there was so little written about them it was a hit or miss situation when it came to care, housing and health. Today, with the internet at our finger tips, and countless books on various species, self-educating is a joyous and necessary component to be availed by all. We never know it all, and learning is a life time effort. Everyday with a Companion Parrot offers opportunities to observe or learn something new and valuable.
Many of us wish to adopt a new fid into our homes, hearts and flocks but there are so many considerations beyond species to work through. I must say this topic was brought to me by our dear friend Eva Kline of the famed K K Koral. It is something we need to look at when thinking of the addition of a brand new flock member in an established flock. That is the dreaded "quarantine" .
It would be the very rare home that can provide us with "IDEAL" conditions to quarantine an incoming bird. So with this knowledge what can we do? and what is not ok to do? To correctly quarantine a new Parrot you need a room, that is supplied with it's own source of air, preferably filtered intake and exhaust. Many Avian diseases are air-borne. Simply separating a new Parrot from the flock within the same household does not prevent contamination and disease spread through the air, air vents and whenever the door is opened to care for the new comer. The false belief that changing your clothing, shoes etc after caring for the new comer WILL NOT prevent the spread of disease.
By definition all quarantine of Avians is to be done in a building separate from ALL other birds in a flock. It must have it's own air filtration system to prevent spread of airborne disease particles and be tended by someone who does not come into contact with other Parrots during the quarantine period. Separation of the flock and new comer by floors within the same home is not considered fully quarantined. Although changing clothes, shoes and showering before entering and after being in contact with the new fid will work greatly to help stop cross infection.
The recommended method of quarantine suggests that all incoming new flock members have TWO sets of blood testing done at intervals advised by your Veterinarian to screen for Avian diseases. However, unless the Parrot is shedding a virus, a false negative can occur.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION: what other suggestion do you have for bringing home that new flock member?

  Hi, Sweetie
BOTM vote #22. A notebook filled with day to day info is a great idea. Having plans just for a short time emergency is a good idea too.

Have a great day, wing hugs and beak kisses, Pearl and Silver.

HI SWEETIE. MOM THOUGHT SHE HAD SOMEONE TO CARE FOR ME WHEN AND IF SOMETHING SHOULD HAPPEN TO HER. SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE HER NEPHEW WHO SHOWED AND INTEREST IN ME. BUT WHEN MOM FOUND OUT ON HOW HE DID NOT TAKE CARE OF HIS GUINEA PIG SHE DECIDED HE WAS NOT GOING TO GET TO CARE FOR ME. IF ANYTHING I WILL GO BACK TO MY BREEDER/BIRDSITTER TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH HER. MOM HOPES THAT NOTHING LIKE THAT WILL EVER HAPPEN. SHE IS THINKING OF OTHER OPTIONS JUST IN CASE TOO.
