Message:I'm sorry, Notgayaboutbirds, but I find absolutely nothing disturbing about what this person has done to open up her heart and her home to a bird in obvious need.  I agree that this bird probably does have parasites which could be contagious to humans (and in my opinion I believe it is Giardia), but the parasites are not life threatening if treated promptly and should not present any threat to the humans as long as sanitary procedures are adopted while the bird is being treated.  Procedures such as keeping the cage clean, the bird's cage water clean and washing your hands thoroughly before and after cleaning your bird's cage, bowls, etc...  Giardia is passed along in contaminated water by droppings.  It is highly unlikely that the human is going to drink poopy bird water.

Which brings me to ask Debbie if you ever had your bird treated with Ronidazole as if it did have Giardia so that disease could be ruled out?  Have you taken your new Nanday to the vet?
