    I am loosing over 50 percent of my young pigeons to a disease. All the adults are healthy... lay eggs and raise squabs with no problems. Young birds leave the nest and get weaned.. then independent... still no problems. But a couple months later some of these young birds will suddenly get...

    For the last few days, my King Pigeon Archimedes has been having some irregular poops. It has been very rainy here in NY, so he likes to sit in his nest for a few hours and when he comes out to poop, he gives me these big mountain lion sh!ts with the white cap and that seems fine to me. He...

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has experienced any side effects from grit, namely Piminix? We used to have positive results at first, but lately the pigeons have been acting pretty 'off' following eating it. Nothing looks or smells out of the ordinary with the product. The birds go for it...

    One of my pigeons started stamping its feet up and down very fast like it was tapdancing, it looked like it was trying to reach an itch. Now a couple of pigeons have started doing this and I am wondering if it is time to give them a Permethrin bath again? Or maybe just spray them with a...

    Green watery poop, extremely twitchy when walking, eyes focus and unfocus when looking at something. I held some food to her earlier and she tried pecking at it, barely moved her head forward and opened her beak. Missed the food completely. She isn't eating or drinking. I just received this...

    today i saw my baby bird with his neck huddled in the nest bowl. As i looked it he was breathing heavily and had is neck twisted, but it was stiff and not wobbly, i was thinking the other pigeons may have stepped on him or he is sick. I gave it some water cause i assumed it was dehydrated but it...

    Hi, I've had a white dove four fours years and she's never been sick until now and I don't know what to do. A couple of weeks ago her eye had, what I thought to be, some staining around it, as she jumps into the cat food when my cats are eating. I washed it off and today it has returned. She...

    I was curious how many people have got sick from there pigeons. Whether it be something you caught from them or because of dust when cleaning. I'm just curious if there is a major danger here?

    I'm just wondering what could cause shivering in a pigeon? As most of you probably read I got my pigeons about 2-3 weeks ago. They all appeared healthy and happy to begin with. One was puffing up, but that went away quickly and I think it was stress from being swapped at the sale. Anyway, they...
