Diseases and symptoms of these diseases

The tendency and demand of people to keep exotic birds is very high. Now people are not keeping them only for hobbies; from a commercial point of view, this bird has become much more domesticated than before.

          In our country birds are not keeping in a scientific way till now are we are not yet aware of the proper method of bird keeping. We are not aware of the exact procedure of keeping birds yet. As a result, it is not possible for us to know the cause of the bird's illness. Unknowingly apply various drugs. Sometimes the bird's disease is cured and sometimes the opposite situation occurs.

       I am informing you about the experience of keeping birds for a long time and knowing the symptoms of any disease from others or from bird experts. I can't say these are 100% correct. The cause of the disease can never be detected without testing in the laboratory.
