Found pigeons with PMV, very important question, please read!


I rescued one 3 weeks back from a flock, hand fed him, hes doing excellent. Very used to being indoor. Still cant eat on his own, but I can see he is stabilizing very well.

Now, found the 2nd bird from the same flock, who can fly well but have trouble picking up larger seeds.

I caught her as well, brought home. They are from the same flock.

So I wondered, if they can be kept together in the same room, cuz I assumed the PMV from the same flock would be of similar strain.

Another question I have is, please answer.

can recovered pigeons who had PMV, be reinfected with PMV again? Are recovered pigeons immune to PMV virus itself?

An example would be, if my recovered bird, can in contact with a new PMV bird, can he/she be infected yet again??

(Not talking about the symptoms that can resurface when they are stressed, I am talking about new infection)

They can be in the same room, no problem.

There is no lifetime immunity after one bout with PMV. Immunity after recovery would be a little longer than it would be for a pigeon which had been vaccinated and never had PMV, but after that it could get a new infection.
