    I'm caring for a Pigeon I found and I'm having a tough time finding local supplies(grit mostly). I'm wondering where others in the area are buying their pigeon goods and what online stores they've had luck with.

I started to tube feed, and for 3-4 days...

    I have seen many posts about PMV and I find it very disturbing that so many are being diagnosed with this virus when I believe that it is entirely possible that some of these birds merely have a vitamin B deficiency. The symptoms are the same. The nervous system is affected and tremors, loss of...
