Can other species of birds get pox from a pigeon?

I have what looks like pox on one of my pigeons (started another thread for that) and need to know if it's contagious to other birds--I have a parrot, cockatiel, and parakeets in my room and would like to bring my pox pigeon in but obviously not if the other birds can get it (the pox pij is quarantined in the living room at the moment).

EDIT: Jay provided more info on my other thread that states parrots can indeed catch it, so if a moderator can remove this thread that would be great. Thanks!

Maryjane, click on my webshots link....there is a page there that lists the different types of pox by species. To be certain, you could email Dr. Spear
through his website:


Hope this helps.
