Estimate birthday of my conure l?


I have a shot certificate with date his first shots were given. I want to know how old my conure could have been when he got his shots, so I may figure out when his birthday is?


Answer:

Hi Charlie,

If you have the name of the Veterinary clinic, they should have the bird’s age. Vaccines are not as commonly given in parrots, so it depends on what they gave him. Most likely it was for Polyoma and that is first given at 3 weeks. But generally it is only given once the bird is sold, so that date really is not a good indication of age. I would ask the breeder or whoever you bought your conure from.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
