Possible To Quarantine So Close?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have a a decent sized aviary, used to quarantine my birds inside. Right now that is impossible, so i've been thinking of ways to have a 4th Budgie in the group, which would make two males, two females.

 

Exactly how far does the bird need to be away from other birds? Is it physical touch that we are restricting? If so, a closed off area inside the aviary should be fine for quarantine. If not, then i'll have to rethink my options.

 

I have two cage sizes to use for quarantine. I was thinking of having the one smaller cage in the aviary, with the other larger one on top of the smaller cage. That would give 1-2" of room so no budgies could touch. But they could get close. Would this be suitable?

 

Thanks for any on topic replies.

Do you have any pictures of your cages?

 

I think it is best that the quarantined bird is as far away as possible... others will give you better information... I'm just a beginner

It is essntial that when a birds wings flap, that dried faces dust is not spread through the air...that is why a minimum of 5 metres.

No worries - Thanks all, good to know. In the meantime I picked up a friends mini-aviary to use.

 

KAZ - I notice by your '.....' at the end of your post you're probably a bit bored of having to quote links of what could have been found with enough patience. I thank you for your post and understanding - However I strive to do the right thing by my animals, and a post in vain asking for info is much better than just going off and doing it the wrong way. :D I'm sure you understand.

 

Regards.

I have no problems looking things up for anyone if I have time to do so. Too easy :hap:
