A vital component of the care of birds is to also incorporate research to gain valuable knowledge. This page will be updated with various research papers as an on-going process.
NOTE: These articles are general in nature and are not intended to replace the advice of your experienced avian vet.
Birds need to be treated on an individual case by case basis
Please remember we do not treat just because we can, but with the genuine belief that by doing so we are helping the bird along the flight path back to successful freedom.

This page has just begun development and we welcome contributions and suggestions please email us:
