    The vet recommended that I use Corid, but I was wondering if anybody else might have any suggestions? I am giving her Baytril right now, would it be okay if I got the Corid and used it at the same time as the Baytril? I also need a probiotic to give her, but I'm not sure which one is the best...

    I am new to this web site and live in Queens, New York City. I feed the pigeons, sparrows and wrens and lately, a pair of some type of partridges. These birds are so accustomed to me feeding them everyday at the same time, that they all wait patiently an hour before on the roof of the house...

    About a week ago I went to my loft and one of my cocks fell to the ground and could not fly or stand, when I picked him up he was cold to the touch and was breathing strange. I placed him in a cage with a heat lamp and in about two days he was flying and eating and is now ok as far as I can...

    I have a cock that was fine yesterday, and when I went to the loft to feed this morning he could not stand or fly. His body and feet are cold and his breathing is very showllow. This has been one of my best breeders and I have had this bird for a year and it has never been sick.

    It seems my birds have hookworms (Tropisurus americana) I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this worm, what did you use to treat, and what were the symptoms? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Matt
