Your Bird's Health

Avian influenza seasonally occurs in the US from December to June because the virus survives for long periods in cool humid weather, within bodies of water, and on many surfaces. HPAI is easily transmissible and deadly. It kills within 24 – 48 hours via internal hemorrhaging. There is no cure and no vaccine to prevent it.

Do you have a vet for your flock? Do you bring your birds in for a checkup annually or semi-annually? Does your vet have Saturday or Sunday hours? Do you know where to get emergency care for your bird? At one point in your bird’s life, they may need emergency care – especially as your bird ages.
