Avian Researcher:

Jeannine and her husband Terry have been involved with birds for many years. Her flock now consists of six cockatiels, all rescued. Her experience with Avian Bornaviral Ganglioneuritis (PDD) stems from the five years she cared for their Triton cockatoo, Krissy, who passed away in 2013. Their cockatiels range from around seven to 18  years of age.

They have been involved in avian rescue for the past 13 years. Some of the birds came from rescue organizations and some through friends.
