So... for those who dont know I work at a Petsmart. Recently we got in a young sun conure and after his first week here we noticed he was not eating very well so we are now hand feeding him and by we, I mean me as I'm basically the only one who knows how... Anyways, onto whats freaking me out... At first I thought he just wasn't weaned properly but after taking him to the vet it turns out that he may have Psitocsis (sp?). Ahhhhhhhhh! We didnt catch it right away so he had been taken out of quarantine already so my birds, my boyfriends bird and the birds of the other people in my department may have been infected. We'll here back soon, but Im not going to be able to sit still until I know.
By the way... to preempt any people who may not like their local Petsmarts. It is likely that this disease was brought in not from the breeder but from a coworker of mine who bought their own baby sunconure around the same time as we got ours from a fairly shady breeder.
