Here are a couple of pictures of one of my PMV survivors. About two weeks ago she began loosing feathers on her head. Small pinpoint bumps appear, but they do not rupture. There is no crusting as I have seen with pox in the past. The skin is quite dry. The feather loss is spreading. I've been treating it with some triple antibiotic without success. This bird lives indoors in a cage with Loverly. They are paired and I hate to separate them. Certainly Loverly has been exposed to whatever this is, but shows no indication of any leisons of any kind.
The birds do go out to the aviary at intervals for bath time and sun. None of the other birds show any pox symptoms, but I can't rule it out.
Does anyone have any idea of what I might be dealing with here?
