    Just wanting an idea of what meds folks use on a regular basis for their pigeons; old, young, baby, new birds? For myself, I'm just using garlic in the drinking water, some bathsalt and spray for parasites and just keeping the loft clean. I know, to only apply when needed, but I have also...

    I have a pigeon who keeps pooping out watery/darkgreen/smelly poop. I dont know if she has a infection or disease. She looks fine and just got done laying her eggs. She eats well and drink well and doesnt seem to have any bad signs of diseases or infections. Is this regular or is something wrong?
