Pigeons & Chickens?


Can pigeons and chickens be kept on the same property in 2 different cages?

Avian doctors say that the chickens will become sick because of the pigeons?

I think that raising them in seperate areas away from each other is fine.

I don't think that pigeons will make the chickens sick or vice-versa, they just have completely different nutritional needs, loft/housing requirements that could potentially pose a problem, just not good to keep any different species together, but in seperate completely seperate coops is okay.

I'd agree w/that, just think they have different needs and you may have
them for different reasons as well.

Here's a link to Merck's On-line w/a listing of diseasea that poultry can
contract:

http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/in.../bc/200100.htm

On the left, there's a scroll menu that enables you to select which
text you'd like to view on the right.

Here's another link from Merck's On-Line:

http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/in.../bc/220100.htm

In the first paragraph on the page brought up by the above link is a another
link to a table on Zoonosis. Just to give you an idea of comparison of other
species, poultry and birds in general.

There may be some diseases that they they both can contract, some that
are species specifc, some just different all together. Housing in separate areas would seem the way to go for both of their protection as a group.

Hi FP & Treesa,

How do i explain this to a poultry doctor. I like to have chicken egg farm somewhere in the country side and also would like my pigeons to be with me away from the city but the doctors say dont that the chicks come from a very sterile enviorment and they run lot of risk

Hi Warriec,

Did you get a chance to look at the two links I gave you and what did
you think of them?
