Hello everyone,
This is my first question, probably of many. After 20 years without pigeons, I am finally in a place where I can have them again. What book would you suggest that would describe common pigeon ailments, preventative and corrective care. What medications should I have on hand at all times.

Is there a thread for this already. I browsed through them, but there are so many.

I don't know of any good books, but I've made my own compiled with the wealth of information at Pigeon Talk and also I refer to -

Thanks for the link. I'll keep the website in my favorites. I'd still like a book to have on hand though. Has anyone read the "Flying Vet".

IMHO.......this is THE best book available today. I have it and if I could only keep one book, this would be it. WELL worth the money it costs.

How about medicines?

Thanks, I'll look for that book. Any other suggestions are also welcome.

What basic medications should I have on hand for emergency pigeon care.

Thanks for the responses

My obsessions come in cycles and whatever the current obsession is, I must read and learn all I can about it. I've been spending a lot of time on the site and reading all I can about care. Hope I don't have many sick birds, but I'd like to know what to do when it does happen.
