so i got my new babies from a local petshop, i know the owner, and it is him who breeds them, i have seen his birds and the only illness he sometimes gets is sinusitis...(a type of cold)
now the two babies i have are clear for sinusitis... they are healthy little babies...
can i cut my quarantine short, being that i know the health history of these birds?...
i have to move soon, so it will make things easier if theyre not, but isnt impossible to keep quarantined....

I always think it's better to be safe. I've had a couple of new birds from sources i've trusted, and a couple of weeks into quarantine the stress of the move triggers some hidden illness.

It's always best to wait it out but I don't want to be a hypocrite..I've cut it short in the past. I just don't recommend it to others. There's always a risk no matter how healthy they seem.

I've done the same, which was usually when the problems happened. :rolleyes: The only time i feel safe not quarantining is when the bird has come from an only bird home, and even then i'll keep it separate for a shorter quarantine.

That's true. Even a bird from a one bird home can have problems. That's the thing with birds. They hide their illness VERY well that's why it's SUPER important that you watch them constantly and take note of any changes at all.
