WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Always wash your hands after handling birds or cleaning aviaries.
Purchase a copy of "Everybird - A Guide to Bird Health" and observe the quarantine precautions
outlined on p. 21.
Do not do autopsies.
Wear disposable gloves, particularly when handling dead birds.
Control mites, ticks and insects in aviaries with pest strips or insecticides.
Clean regularly. Do not allow dust and debris to build up. Use a face mask and gloves.
If you get sick tell your doctor about your birds.
