    Hi everyone! Remember my Butterfly bird, from this post? Well, she's back... although technically she didn't really go far. I set her free a couple of weeks ago, after dosing her up for a week or so with the vitamin supplement I ordered (Vetafarm Multivet with moulting aid) - she was so...

    Hi I'm new around here and to pigeons. I have a one week old squab with a lump on the left side of its neck that I just noticed today and I'm not sure what it is. I can't tell if it's canker, I can't get the beak open enough to see down the throat. The crop is empty and he/she is fairly...

    My vet came to the house today to check my Dove for canker or a yeast infection, he did a swab of his mouth and throat. Since he left my bird sounds very hoarse, and is making sounds like a hiccup ..does this sound normal? I tried to call the vet back but can't get a hold of him. Is it possible...

    I got a sick pigeon from a animal market and I am trying to treat it :(. I cleaned up his eye which had excess pus and put antibiotics on it. He has been coughing and I think it is canker. I checked the throat there was a bad smell but I couldn't see anything. I gave it metronidazole and the...

    The next day after worming a pigeon the bird acted like it is having trouble swallowing its water. On inspection of the throat and mouth there was yellowish tan worms about an inch long. One was wiped out and it stood up on one end and had looked almost identical to what I call an inch worm like...

    Hi all, My heart is pounding as I'm typing this. I think there is something wrong with Krikky :( For the past few days, I (the human) has been ill - parched throat, fever, giddiness - and Krikky seems ok. But today, I am still unwell and there is a major difference in Krikky's behaviour. She...
  7. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    So I was reading an article on PIPA the other day and it had to do with checking the throat in order to help grade pigeons. The article tried describing what to look for but I'm still a bit unsure of what to look at. Does anyone know of any books that have pictures of that help in describing...

    Around a week or 2 ago, I noticed the laugh in my dove changed. He used to have a normal laugh but now it is very rough sounding, like his throat is dry or something. However, his other coos are the exact same. I'm not sure whether he is sick or not because ever since he's hit puberty, he's...

    Hello all. I'm not entirely sure if my bird has something wrong with him. He could just be yawning, but I'm posting it here just incase there is something wrong. Since my other dove died of illness a while back, I guess it's easy to consider me a bit paranoid. :/ Anyway, A few minutes ago, my...

    Possible Pigeon Pox, maybe mites, Help please! I went to my coop today to find that one of my breeding females has sores around her eyes and a few on her nostrils above her beak. She does not seem to be in any discomfort but it definitely has me worried. I've seen pox in other species of birds...

    One of my baby roller pigeon at 2 and a half weeks old just suddenly started having this marble shape in his throat. I think this is some sort of throat disease because all my other baby roller pigeons never had this thing before. The thing in his throat seems to be making the baby pigeon have...

    I have a few pigeons that have lost the feathers on their throat. Any ideas why this has happened?

    Hello! My pigeon is about 2 months old and has just recently learned to fly. He was fine up until he was about two months, and then this small bulge appeared in the middle of his throat. I thought maybe i was seeing things, so i ignored the problem. Now it's about a week later and the lump in my...
