I am looking for some help regarding transmission of avian pox (avipox) in avicultural finches. Several area finch breeders have noticed occurrences of pox in captive bred finches. With treatment the finches have had a very good survival rate and sufficient measures have been taken to control the transmission. The basic question remains; Are the surviving finches appropriate for breeding? I have only found one source that indicates that the virus is not passed to the egg. Do you have any information or opinion on this?
