    Not sure where to begin on this, or if I should post this, but I think I am going to have to make some new arrangements regarding the housing of my birds. I have kept birds for the past 15 years, and worryingly, I have felt unwell for the past few months, and am currently being investigated for...

    ok, I searched other threads, and saw some stuff about blech, nothing specific to PMV though. I'm pretty sure, almost positive, the one i got a week ago has PMV, now the one that was in a box next to him is showing sure signs of PMV. You see, i do quarantine them, but the BEST i can do with...

  11. Pigeon & Dove Stories
    I got into pigeons back in 1977 while I was in the Marines Corps at Camp Lejeune, N.C. I lived in base housing and did not have a loft. I joined a local club (New River Homing Pigeon Club) that had just five members. I obtained my initial birds from members of that club, some free and some...

    I have been watching the pigeon that has the bad canker and as he breathes one side of his front inflates and deflates. It isn't a ruptured air sac, but more like when they deliberately swell themselves up to defend their nest, but on one side only. Does anyone know what this indicates? I...
