can't add much apart from hope he improves.

I would be asking questions about who is there at weekend, will he  be crop fed and medicated or is he eating for himself as if he is eating alone he may be better off at home.

No hun, the symptoms your describing are very similar to one of my babies that went off to his new home....unfortunately he picked up the disease at his new home, where a previous bird had lived with the same thing (unknown to me as had I did I wouldn't of let him go ) Low white blood counts are typical of PBFD hun....I, just so hoping your little one can fight what ever it is he as picked up....my baby was a young bird too and their immune system is not as established as an older bird hence why it takes hold!


I don't want to frighten you but I also want you to be aware hun......are they testing for pbfd??

Sometimes it's better to be for warned, I was hesitant to post as didn't want to make matters worse ...it may well be not the case at all, but as ive read through your post its identical to lil Radley........if he can fight there's a chance, but those white blood cells are working so hard to fight it off....I know Radleys dropped to 0.4 and if I recall the normal range is 4 or 6 upwards....


like I say hun it may not be at all, but worth mentioning to the vets to see if that base is covered xxxxx


Thinking of you xx

I do hope you get Cody sorted. Give him a good tickle from me. Must be so worrying for you. Big hugs all round.

i was thinking along the lines of since nothing has come up as a red marker as such no gram negative or positive flagging up in the bloods, no overloading with viral cells showing up in a full blood count and the only note worthy thing showing as being low white cell and a calcium maker adding to that the recent tragic illness of Tommy's that seemed to show one thing then another than another entirely different... and none of the normal unusal heard of things....  and no total conclusive it was this or that but seemed to be a combination of lots of things.

i had in my head decided that PBFD wasn't in the mix here, no other noted contact with other birds nothing shown up until now ie a sudden loss of weight and a sudden decrease in wishing to eat... yes only a year old but somehow wasn't thinking that one would be an option....

with the mention of xrays and a scope, lack of vocalisation and a weight drop a perhaps indicator for the all terrifying A word.... but to be honest Aspers has a fear of god about it for many of us but its never a done deal that one and is manageable in early diagnosis ... add to that that the spores are all around us for that and we all live with it day to day regardless of how much we clean (its in the air) one minute the weather is nice then wet then damp early summer came before spring arrived and back to a damp dark summer.... fungal paradise.

suppose its down to the vets to see what other markers are showing up .....

I wonder if, much like aids with people, there aren`t some new strains of viruses hitting birds which nobody really knows about.

Just attacks the immune system hence why you get so many progressive and changing signs and diagnosis?

Maybe when vets just assume PDD, there`s another virus, or something simlar, or maybe more than one?

I know what you mean tasch but Radley had the exact same symptoms, roughly same age and if it wasn't for his mummy being like codies mummy and on it getting the advise I guess she'd be none the wiser....his symptoms were weight loss, quiet, lathargic, unusual feet temperature, very very low blood count, was being crop fed and weight gain very minimal....pbfd does always show as you would typically think with beak and feather problems.... The prognosis of pbfd with the low white blood count was told by three vets to me to be typical of it :( ....

If the results come back as aspers then that can be addressed...rad also went through X-rays and scope also showing an enlarged liver
