    My new rescued feral pigeon, Princess, has watery droppings. It started yesterday, but she looks fine. She's eating and drinking well, she's alert as usual. She was on antibiotics, erythromycin, for 10 days. Any suggestions? Please let me know. Thank you. Constantin

    K: A new item was added to the grocery list tonight: One Gallon Of Apple Cider Vinegar. The product is cut with water to 5% acidity. Now, how much per gallon do we use? Remember, this is not a loft situation--far from it. Bernie spent the afternoon watching The Sopranos with me while Cosmo...
