PBFD or other disease?????

A cockatoo is a parrot that is any of the 21 species belonging to the bird family Cacatuidae, the only family in the superfamily Cacatuoidea. Along with the Psittacoidea (true parrots) and the Strigopoidea (large New Zealand parrots), they make up the order Psittaciformes (parrots). The family has a mainly Australasian distribution, ranging from the Philippines and the eastern Indonesian islands of Wallacea to New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Australia.

Please check the blood sample 1st.. From external look it just like the PBFD.. Better take the good one.. This one can/may jeopardise the whole collection if confirm with PBFD.. Dont take the risk bro.. :roll:
