I was wondering if anyone is concerned about West Nile Virus. I was reading a bird talk magazine and it said that west nile virus can possibly be deadly to parrots. It said to get a mosquito net and put it over your birds cages at night. I think I am going to get some nets to put over my birds cages at night. What do you guys think about west nile? Here is a link about west nile virus Anyone think Iam just being way to paranoid :wacko: :blush:

I wasn't aware there is a problem in Ontario Jaime there doesn't seem to be a lot of them around where I am so I am not worried about it, unless you leave your doors wide open for them to come in I think the risk to indoor birds getting it from a mosquito is minimal.
