    Does anybody know what diseases can be passed from poultry and/or waterfowl to parrots? We recently got a parrotlet and I want to be sure we take any necessary precautions.

    I guess anything that can be carried by wild birds to domesticated birds could then go inside too- those 'yuckies' would be 'bird specific' not breed/species.
