These pigeons live in the rafters of our apartment building. The balcony is pretty protected from...

    I'll be installing a coop of sorts in my aviary soon. It will be about the size of a utility shed (like those portable tool sheds you see at garden and hardware stores).

    Hi, my new pair of homers are digging around in their feathers with their beaks alot, and they kick out with their feet, as if there is some irritation. Is this some type of mite perhaps? Also, what would be a good preventative to use in the cage, or on the birds? I use sevin dust on snakes for...
