Beak And Feather Disease in Birds



Any bird infected with PBFD should be immediately quarantined. Euthanasia is recommended to prevent the spread and stop the bird’s suffering, as there is no effective treatment for this viral infection.




To prevent PBFD, strict hygiene should be followed in bird colonies, especially controlling the dust. Also, regularly screen for PBFD. Consequently, if any bird is found infected, quarantine the bird and burn its nest box to prevent the disease from spreading.
