    Hi everyone!! I have read a lot on PT about Brewers Yeast the past couple days and I decided to purchase some for Stanley. I bought Blue Bonnet's Sugar Beet Brewers Yeast (http://www.houseofnutrition.com/blbryepo16.html). However, I noticed that some folks recommended not using human grade...

    Has anyone ever had a problem with crop fungus in young birds, from the use of brewers yeast. I have read an over whelming amount of positive remarks about using B.Y. but I also read that young birds can be a problem. I currently give my flock organic Apple cider vinegar twice a week and just...

    Hello all, I was wondering at what point of the week during the race season should Brewers Yeast be given if at all? Can it be given everyday, or just a few days before the race? Any suggestions on its use for short and long races would be greatly appreciated as always : ) Roy

    Hercule is an ex-racer, downed with wing injury on his way back to Belgium from England, and rescued by a fancier who owns my nearest feed store. As he is now pretty much grounded, we offered him a permanent home. He nests in the shed at the end of the most recent aviary extension. When we put...

    I have seen many posts about PMV and I find it very disturbing that so many are being diagnosed with this virus when I believe that it is entirely possible that some of these birds merely have a vitamin B deficiency. The symptoms are the same. The nervous system is affected and tremors, loss of...

    For anyone who has been following the threads about PMV and vitamin B deficiency. My tablets are 750mg and about the size of a kernel of corn. I am certain that I used to give a whole tablet as I don't remember cutting or breaking them in half. They are so old that they are probably not viable...

    Hi everyone, I was just reading and I quote " All grits dry out and should be moistened occasionally. When it is thus refreshed, the birds appear to relish it more.!" I have never done this before did i miss this little trick from years gone by ? I had always thought it would do more harm...

    Hey everyone, You may remember the fantails we rescued a month ago from an auction in rural Alberta. I thought they were deformed, as I'd never seen such extreme fantails, but was told otherwise. Although one of them turns in a circle and has difficulty getting around, he is not sick. We took...

Left the membrane alone. I kept it moist. He got his body almost all the way out. He couldnt get his but out so I helped...

    I have had a few different occassions this year of fertile eggs survive until very close to hatching and then the egg appears to literally melt, killing the near ready to hatch baby inside. The egg appears to just kinda fold back, and kindof melt off the top half of the fetus. Anybody heard of...

    I am so confused!!:eek: I have been looking at ALL the different vitamins on the market and just am not sure which is best for the pigeons and doves who live here. Most of these birds will not be breeders, most are rescues, so no showing or racing either, I just want an all around vitamin to...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post here. We rescued a pigeon (for the first time)that has the same symptoms as Sarahttt has described-in particular the neck twisting and the head seeming at times to be turned completely upside down while the body is standing normally. When the pigeon sleeps...

    Hey Everyone, Yep, my Beautiful is a girl :eek: !!! I woke up to an egg this morning. It is NOT fertile, as no mating has been going on. Last week Beautiful started acting weird. Well, like a girl. Anytime I'd pet his back. He'd go flat and his vent would open open up. He did this last year...

    I think I have a bird that is either blind...or very sick. Hopefully this video shows you what he does. Basically, he flies, he flies into stuff. He is extremely skinny. I have to feed him with baby bird formula to keep him alive. He will not eat or drink himself. He seems to be looking around...

    Can anyone help? She is 9 years old and a rescued racing pigeon. Last night and this morning she really hasn't been herself, shes quiet and just sat on her perch with fluffed out feathers, looking sleepy and her poo is clear and runny like raw egg white, (for the want of a better description.)...

    There hasn't been enough consideration given to yeast infections in birds and to try and highlight this condition, I'm pasting this article about it along with the source. This condition happens so often that you need Nystatin in your arsenal of weaponry. If a bird is not responding to what we...
