And cause unnecessary trouble. That is precisely why MOST of
the truly knowledgable people, who used to be on here, left.
It's hard to offer help to those who need it when there are so
many who come on here simply because they have nothing else in
life to do but start arguments and muddy the water so much
that the needed answers get lost in the piles of poop. This
board is supposed to be about birds and to offer advice and
support to bird people. It was never intended to be a place
for people with mental health issues who thrive on chaos and
know little or nothing about birds. If you are in real doubt
about a birds state of health, you should always consult a
certified avian vet and get the latest information about
current issues and research concerning avian health.
