Pacheco’s Disease is caused by a herpes virus. Often seen in shipments of imported birds, stress seems to trigger a reaction in a previously asymptomatic carrier or increase the susceptibility of becoming infected. The proximity and stressful nature of shipping appear to contribute to the transmission of the virus.
