I've been reading articles all day... I came across one that talks about keeping your birds safe/protecting your birds... many things in the article made a lot of sense, but at the same time, it kind of takes things to the extreme... and I just wonder, do people actually do these things daily...?? Such as: If you’ve been near other birds or bird owners, such as at a feed store, pet store, or bird club meeting, clean and disinfect your clothing, shoes, cages, and equipment before going near your birds. Scrub your shoes with disinfectant. This may seem like a lot of work, but your boots and shoes can easily track disease to your birds. Or keep a separate pair of shoes or boots near your cages to wear only when working with your birds. Wear clean clothes that you use only when you feed and care for your birds. This would suggest, every time I go to TSC or any other feed store, I need to clean and disinfect my shoes and clothing.... Uhhh, as I said, it makes sense, but I don't know if it's a little above and beyond what is necessary. What are your thoughts?? And: If visitors have birds of their own, do not let them near your birds. Avoid visiting farms or other households with poultry. Do not share lawn and garden equipment, tools, or poultry supplies with your neighbors or other bird owners, but if you must, disinfect them before bringing them home. Those are some of the things I read.... but I wanted to ask also, what is an acceptable quarantine time for new birds? If/when I ever decide to add to my flock? Thanks so much in advance!
