Parrotlets and PBFD

I know all parrots are able to get pbfd but what I was wondering is, is it like PDD and uncommon in parrotlets or is it easy for them to catch?

That's really a question for a vet since I only have anecdotal or subjective information based on what I've heard. I have to say, however, that in almost 30 years of breeding parrotlets, I can only remember one parrotlet being suspected of having PBFD but that really doesn't mean anything as far as its pathology is concerned. I can say that generally speaking New World birds have less of issue with PBFD than Old World birds but again that is very general and not a scientific analysis.

Sincerely yours,
