Hawk, at this point, I would probably run a 4-5 course of a Sulfa based antibiotic, like Sulmet, Albon, or you could call the tropical fish stores in your area and pick up a med called Triple-Sulfa by API (for this med you will also need a 1cc syringe - the kind without a needle attached). From the look of the droppings I think more than probiotics and/or ACV may be needed and a sulfa based med will treat both for cocci and a number of GI infections that can cause the droppings to look like that.

Good luck with your birds,

Karyn

Hi HAWK HUNTER, you need to also use grinding grit. There are 3 different types of grit SHELL,GRANITE, and MIXED. When feeding young you must supply granite grit or mixed grit along with the shell grit. The young pigeon is not born with grinding grit( GRANITE). Many people think that shell grit grinds up the food this is not true all that shell grit supplys is calciun and is broken down very quickly. So get a mixed grit and add it with the oyster shellGEORGE;)

Karyn: Thanks Karyn! I'll have the sulfur medicin prepared. I'll wait until Tuesday and treat them with those med if the droppings still go wet. Because the bird have no sign of sickness, and I want them to have a natural immunity system. I would like to give them medicine as least as possible.

George: Thanks George! Actually, The grit that I feed my birds contain small rock in it and something black look like carbon. I went to Jedds store and there were alot of grit type. Do I need to give the birds anything else? Such as pick stone, vitamineral...?

I think the droppings look to me like coccidiomycosis ,please give some anti coccio medicines like Sulfamethazine (Sulmet),Dosage: 1 tablespoon per gallon for 3 - 5 days.

Hawk, not sure I would wait a few more days to start treatment, the signs of sickness are the wet dropping you said they still had a day ago. In theory it sounds like a good idea, to try and let them overcome a possible infection on their own, but sometimes what you end up doing is weakening their body systems further by letting what ever it is infecting them persist without trying to help knock it out.

Good luck with them,

Karyn
