    Just wanted to share this link with those who havn't been on it. I find this a really valuable resource for doing research and looking up clinical signs of illness in poultry. Anyone else use this?

    Excellent link! I HAVE used the Cornell Lab's website before, trying to decipher certain mystery diseases. Many of the illness descriptions have pics, which can make all the difference in determining if this is what you are dealing with. Thanks for posting it!

    I also use this one a lot...

    Between the two, I can not only help out my birds, but learn something along the way.

    Great post Jbobs!

    Yeah MerckVet is great too. I also use the Compendium of Veterinary Products a lot to look up what drugs to use and dosages etc, but I think you have to be a vet or vet tech to have access to it - I've tried sending links from it before to friends and it won't let them access it.

    Great links guys. I keep a random mix of birds so illness is always a worry.

    Don’t you think this should be placed in the Notable Archives & Important / Frequently Requested Topics at the heading of Quails?

    Might be an idea. It's very helpful for alerting people to very important and potentially catastrophic diseases - some of them which are reportable.
