I am a school teacher and I worry about the general knowledge of young people these days.

 

Rabies is a disease that does not exist in Australia, so NO, your bird cannot get rabies from a rat.

 

How did the rat manage to get into your aviary/where you birds are?

 

That is the the first thing you need to find out and fix, then go from there.
