  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello everyone! I use to feed many pigeons on my roof. There is a flock of about 20-30 pigeons living in my attic and then some others come from other roofs of the neighbourhood. In total they are about 50+ birds. Yesterday I noticed one of them showing a symptom of PPMV. He was twisting the...
  2. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi, I'm new here but REALLY need some advice. I found an injured pigeon this afternoon - there are no visible signs of injury.

  7. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    PPMV survivors who have a Neurological Legacy that inclused Star Gazing, Twisted-Head positions, tremors, trotting around backwards, or other variations, can be greatly comforted and helped in overcoming these issues, by a few weeks series of Back Massages. I will try and get a little Vieo...
  8. General Discussions
    Extracts from a study of West Nile Virus, recorded on the CDC website: At first, I found that surprising since pigeons badly impaired from PMV would be unlikely to survive long unaided, but then I recalled a couple of references to the effect that pigeons which demonstrate the neurological...

    Had a PPMV outbreak...my fault, brought in a young Pigeon who I thought only had Canker..."Oooops"... Anyway, it swept through the inside Free Fly Free Rove area...out of about 90 Pigeons, lost seven who were either fledgling-post-fledgling age or Babys ( oddly, one Baby'd die, he sibling...
