    I don't want to sound irresponsible here... However, my little pigeon, Muffin, is not yet fully recovered. After her 5 days on an antibiotic (Tetraycycline) given by my vet, (I originally thought she was going to give me Baytril, but had none, most surprisingly), Muffin is better, but not...

    Can you medicate your birds while they are on eggs and have babies? I have a yb who seems to be going light and he is the only bird but I would like to treat the whole flock. I just wormed him thinking maybe that was the problem. It is a Trimethorprim/Sulfa drug.

    I went in to check on my supposedly PMV pigeon this morning and his face was wet. When I picked him up I noticed that liquid was coming out of his nose/mouth. It smells sour, and when I offered him some water, I noticed that when his beak went in to get some, the liquid that came off his beak...

    One of my relatively new birds has droppings that are mostly comprised of water but with a little solid material. This has been going on for a week or so. Since I had found a worm in another bird's droppings, I wormed the whole flock this weekend and thought that would take care of the watery...

    Jesse sleeps on top of the china cabinet, so I line his areas with white paper towels. Many of his poops, develop a bright green liquid stain around them. I am starting to worry & was wondering if any of you have ever noticed this with your pigeons? Thanks. Phyll
