The first survey on the incidence of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) and avian polyomavirus (APV) among the captive psittacine birds in Poland was presented in this study. Samples were collected between 2006 and 2009. A total number of 751 symptom–free birds from 31 genera and 59 species were tested for BFDV and APV by means of a PCR assay. BFDV was found in 25.3% and APV in 22.24% of the analysed population. The co-existence of BFDV and APV was noted in 5.99% of the birds.
