The reason I went with chlamydia was that initially I couldn't see any canker lesions in his mouth so I thought it wasn't a canker case. Only after a week the canker lesions came up. When I started treating him with doxy, he did show improvement on a daily basis. That was the reason I took canker very lightly at first as I thought it was all part of chlamydia may be. But I was wrong. It was on Marina's insistence that I started the treatment though little late but still better late than never!

I'm giving him approx. 50mg of flagyl.

I'm really glad he is improving. Give him a fresh batch of acv water every day for like 5 days after antibiotic treatment. You are going to use so little acv, might as well mix a new batch every day. Even healthy birds will benefit from acv in the drinking water on a regular basis. If one gives them acv water 3 times a week, it helps to keep them healthy. So this should be an ongoing process.

Probiotics for pigeons will also do him good.

The only ridiculous thing here , I feel , is you. Iím sorry to say but it is because you always judge a book by its cover. Firstly, you said that he wonít survive. And now, you are judging me without knowing a thing. I donít feel the urge to even give you a description of my experience with birds. As you said, leaving the birds to nature , yeah thatís what I do until a bird is at my doorstep breathing itís last. If not save him, Iím always glad to provide him some warmth so that he can breathe his last,peacefully not worrying about being hunted by stray cats.
Surely Iíll send you a pic of him soon.dont worry!

Hey beachwood45789
We're supposed to be stewards. Helping in injured or sick animal is being a steward. Breeding animals that are overpopulated (like you do) is the exact opposite. All of my pigeons are/were injured or sickly "street" pigeons. Work on your biology: your loft pigeons are the same species as my street pigeons. A different species would be the Nicobar, or the Western Crowned. You can take a street pigeon and turn it into a beauty with more brains and personality than some flock that lives out their lives in a loft.

-syed, you're doing a great job. It's difficult to say what the outcome will be, but in my book there's nothing better than helping an injured animal. If you have an aviary vet some somewhere near you, they could give you better help than any of us amateurs trying to dispense medical advice.
