Health checks before departure

We have several birds that will soon be leaving for new collections. Before they are moved they receive a health check including a physical examination to assess a range of criteria such as their general body condition and that they have no foot problems. In addition faecal (poo) samples are collected and sent off to a lab where they are screened for parasites and any bacterial infections that the bird may have. This ensures the bird is fit to be transported and that it should present the receiving collection with no health issues.
