Hep C and HIV cannot be transmitted in the way you describe.

I am happy that your question has  been answered. The reason people get a wide range of responses on similar topics to this is because those of us here who have or who have had Hepatitis C are very sensitive to the unfair stigma attached to this disease. So when someone posts a concern about an extremely improbable or impossible transmission scenario people understandably get upset because we assume that anyone really concerned would first take a few minutes of their time researching the topic independently before posting in a forum with people afflicted with the disease. I'm sure your intent was not to upset people, but I'm just trying to explain why some people may have been upset. Anyway, you will not get hepatitis C from from your pet birds so hopefully your concerns are over.
