iron storage disease


can conures get iron storage disease?


Answer:

Hi,

Any pet bird can develop it, but it would be extremely rare in a conure, just as it was rare for a Grey. It is most commonly seen in the fruit eating birds – Lorys, Lorikeets, Fig Parrots, Mynah birds, Toucans, etc.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
