    I'm well aware that garlic has antibiotic and other properties; I saw a pigeon today that seems like it has a slightly brownish cere. Is it sick? If so, should I give it garlic, and how much? * I can't give it any water - it shuns all of it and doesn't really want to get near me so I can't...

    A week ago I noticed a pair of my pigeons acting very aggressively in the loft and they brutally scalped one of my squeakers. So I proceeded to separate them and a couple of days later the pair had horribly runny bright green droppings. I've been using Sulmet, but apparently too late as I lost...

    Thought I would pass this along. http://www.pigeonbooks.com/index.php?r=14&c=73&l=en Makes for interesting reading. I am a firm believer in fresh only garlic in the water, once a week.

    I did a lot of reading on this site I've seen people talking about goods of Garlic and ppl telling to give garlic once a week. References to feeding pills, have garlic soaked in the water over night and then put it infront of Pigeons. How about just hand feeding the garlic? If yes, what...
