    I wormed everybody on Monday. I use Eqvalan (ivomec) in water. One hen looked a little down so I brought her in and wormed her orally (keeping her inside). Everybody else doing fine, passed some worms. But, this particular hen has been passing worms (dead roundworms) in her poops for 2 days! Now...

    Lets say everything gose to cr=p. Job losses, food shortages get very bad ect. ect. And your local feed store has no grains avalible. So, you have pigeons that you can eat to help you survive, and give you a good sorce of protien. But how do you feed them to keep them reproduceing for you?

    Hi all, I need some help in what to do next. My dogs apparently got ahold of a pigeon in my backyard. Hubby went outside to find feathers all over our back patio. I went in the yard and found the poor soul. He/she is alert. Many feathers pulled from its back (bare skin which looks raw...

    I had a red Muffed Tumbler OC that was born before I was (banded 49) and he lived until 1971. That made him 21 or 22 years old. I remember as a teenager, marvelling at this bird being older than myself. I realize that some large parrots like Amazons and Macaws can be 80 years or even over 100...

    Hello everyone. I need some advice. I have a small ringneck dove aside from my 2 pigeons. The dove is 4 years old. The dove stays in a completely different room than the pigeons, they have no contact. Anyway, my dove has been sounding and acting different. He seems like he's cold a lot...

    or am I missing something here? I ran across this accidently. $10? for a cage that size? Shipping of course is pretty steep but that's still less than $75 for this cage. I would think these would run around $100 or even more. I paid $75 for Walley's cage and it's no where near this big AND it...

    I met a canary breeder near here who suggested microwaving chicken egg shells for 4 minutes to make them brittle and to kill any bacteria, then crushing them and spreading them on the floor for picking fun and extra calcium. One more way to recycle!
