Poxviruses are large DNA viruses that induce intracytoplasmic, lipophilic inclusion bodies (Bollinger bodies) in the epithelial cells of the integument, respiratory tract, and oral cavity. All birds are considered susceptible to poxvirus infection, but many companion and aviary birds are rarely exposed to a susceptible strain. Because of import restrictions, poxvirus in blue-fronted Amazon parrots is no longer commonly seen. In pet bird practice, veterinarians will generally encounter only canary, lovebird, and pigeon poxviruses and fowlpox (see ), which have specific host ranges. Poxviruses are environmentally stable, increasing the likelihood that a viable organism will come into contact with a susceptible host. Poxviruses cannot penetrate intact skin, and a break in the skin or mucous membrane must be present for infection to occur.
The term conure is used for a diverse, loosely-defined group of small to medium-sized parrots. The group is not a taxonomic group consisting of related species and is therefore used by pet keepers rather than avian researchers. You can find many different types of pet birds within this haphazard group. Generally speaking, conures are slender birds with short, broad beaks and they vary in size from 23 cm (9 in) to 48 cm (19 in). Some have elongated tail feathers while others have short, narrow-tipped ones. Some conures are becoming increasingly rare in the wild, including the Blue-chested Conure (Pyrrhura cruentata) and the Queen of Bavaria (Aratinga guarouba).
