I give my breeders ACV and Garlic water
helps the young birds not refuse it when they get weaned as they are already used to the taste from the parents feeding them

I do the same and I agree with Ed about the young being used to it and won't mind it when they are adults.

I take one clove of garlic, smash it and put it in a gallon of water. Let it set overnight and use it the next day. I don't know where I found the information for using it but that is the way I do it.

When babies are being fed by the parents,they are transfering all microbes they have to the babies...GOOD ones and BAD ones...You should NOT interfere with this transfer...ONLY if the YB`s are looking like they have a problem,do you medicate,or use any other means to get them healthy...Leave mother nature alone...Once the babies are weaned,you can add garlic,or any other non-medication to the water...Don`t medicate unless there is a problem....Let the YB`s peck around, and get their own immunity built up on their own...I am going to add a picture to this post,of my YB section,with the dried droppings,that I have under the perches,just for this reason...I have NEVER inoculated any pigeon,that I have ever owned..And my birds have never had pox,and all the other ailments that people inoculate for...Alamo

YBA1,Don`t give them anything but fresh water,twice a day...They cannot get any immunity to any diease,if you give them anything to PREVENT them from exposure....I don`t give anything to my YB`s untill two weeks before the first race....If you have to put something in the water,to help kill germs, 6 drops of Clorox bleach to a gallon of water will take care of that...Every other day !!! That`s it !!.......Two weeks before the first race,you can as I do,give them ...............Vita Kings 5 in1....
It`s a combo wormer/cocci/canker/respiratory/Pro Combo Probiotics........Good Luck....Alamo
