Just keep this in mind-
'Image result for psittacosis
Psittacosis—also known as parrot fever, and ornithosis—is a zoonotic infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia psittaci and contracted from infected parrots, such as macaws, cockatiels and budgerigars, and pigeons, sparrows, ducks, hens, gulls and many other species of bird.'
We rarely get one in our hospital but it is a serious SERIOUS disease reminiscent of Piper's Disease (I tinker with bagpipes) and not to be trifled with one iota.
OK me being paranoid.
you're a little bit late, months back, we were among the first in the aquarium, very hungry birds. The came out at us very hard, even bit and drew blood on my daughter! Those little suckers bite pretty hard when hungry . I was bit pretty hard, and scratched up as well while feeding them. I figure they've got to have antibiotics in their system, way too much human interaction not to be clean.
