    Well this has been an awful weekend. There is an apparent breakout of what I think must be paratyphoid in my tent aviary. I noticed Friday night after Santa Cruz bird died that one other was looking not well. His keel was sticking out a bit and I brought him in and put him on heat and also...

    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.)...

    Shane is still not well. The fecals are fine. He eats and eats but his crop stays relatively empty. He is bone thin and fights the hand feeding. His heat lamp died last night so he was hunched, cold and not moving this morning. I'm not sure he will make it. He has a new lamp so when i went to...

    You guys have a lot of experience with canker, so I could think of nowhere better to turn than to Pigeon-Talk. My pet goose, Moody, has a canker growth on her tongue. It is not bothering her at all, she eats and drinks fine, but it is obvious from the outside as well as the inside that she has...

    Hi Folks, I am the race secretary for a new club here in the Atlanta area and I need some information from all of the racers out there. We have experienced some extremely high losses during this year's young bird series. On the average it is probably in the 65-70% range. I know that this is...

    So recently I got impulsive and picked up some new birds. Got them home and then realized 2 of the 4 were not well. Sick bird #1 has a respiratory problem. He was sneezing a lot and wheezing too. The person I got the birds from sent me a mix of tylosine and amoxicillin to give him. I'm on day...

    I have a young bird (4-8mos?) I've only had him about a month. About a week after I got him home he started up with what seemed respiratory symptoms, snotty sneezing and making a wet sound like he was trying to clear his throat. He got treated with Tylan/doxycycline and seemed to come around...

    Our latest rescue has been with us for 13 days. He was treated with Panacur, Albon & Clavamox. The Panacur was ended last Friday, the Albon on Monday & the Clavamox on Tuesday. He's a big bird & seemed to be doing fine. He had lice & 2 pigeon flies (that I know of), & was sprayed at the...

    Hi guys, just wondered what you give your birds if anything when they are in moult. This time of year can be very stressful for pigeons, and make them feel ill.

    Hi everyone! One week ago now I found a young pigeon that couldn't fly or even walk. She was in a busy train station, so I knew immediately I should help her. I put her into a box and took her with me. She is still a baby, but has "grown up looking" gray feathers, with some yellowish baby...

    I just got a bird back from a real bad race and put her away with some food and water by herself and she's throwing up every time she takes a couple bites of food. She'll take a couple bites then immediately throw up and go back to eating. She's eating like it's the first feed she's seen in a...

    Clueless brought her two darling balcony babies over. They have such a bad pox, poor them. They are also very skinny, even though they are eating on their own, quite a lot, they are skinny. I am not sure if I should deworm them, they are young and pretty affected by the pox. I have some pics of...

    She has been sneezing a lot (several times in a row 2 or 3 times per day) and her poops have been more watery than usual the last couple days. I have been watching her very, very carefully and she seems fine otherwise. She is eating and drinking and being just as active. I checked the inside of...

    I have 3 new squeakers I brought home a week ago, they are in quarantine from my other birds but I'm not giving them any preventatives other than probios. I noticed today that one of the birds appears to possibly be breathing funny, beak slightly open and making some small croaky sounds from...

    I have lurked on this forum several times. I have learned a lot from the information. I finally decided to join up. I had a very small loft for a while for 10 birds or so. Then earlier in the summer I built a bigger one. Still it's not big enough (is it ever???). I'll build a bigger one...

    I recently rescued a pigeon that was being attacked by others. I called him bonk because he had a tendency to fly into the windows of the cinema. I live in Texas. I began researching his symptoms and they seem to match the paramyxovirus, but I'm extremely worried. I've read he can be pulled...
