    I was wondering if any one knew about the pigeon herpes virus and if it was treatable or not. I received pigeons from a friend who recently had an out break of it in his loft and was wondering what I could do to prevent or treat it. Thanks.

    Mieke is 10 years old and for the past few weeks, she has been gradually losing weight and becoming weaker. She wasn't eating with her usual enthusiasm and her poops were slimy and very wet. She started limping a bit and was unable to fly so I brought her inside and hand-fed small seeds and...
