Bird ate from food
Is it bad to eat from food that bird (Great Tit) ate? It's often told that bird feces is a vector of diseases but I guess it's not that bad if it only came in contact with the nose?
I wouldn't. What about bird flu!!
Animals don't understand about germs in the same way humans do..... Well actually animals don't even know germs exist!
Meh... I guess it sort of depends. I'd regularly share my food with my rats and eat after them.
I'm curious how you'd end up eating after a bird.
I would eat food that my wife or kids chewed on, and the human mouth is a rotting cesspool of bacteria.
(sounds bad, but it's true)
If you ate from the food first, I'd actually be more concerned about the bird's health ;-)
But really---what happened.
We need to know.
My dog eats from food that my bird drops all the time and has never had any problems. I don't know that I ever have but after having a bird for 25 years, which has included tickling him and touching his beak I don't think I have ever had any problems. Then again he is not exposed to other birds which might carry disease. Okay, I guess I should just say, I don't know.
