So do lice flies tend to prefer sickly pigeons? Or can they be found on even the healthiest of feral pigeons? I re released my feral pigeon Lilly after I nursed him back to health and I saw him today with a couple of lice flies on him. I'm worried it may be a sign that he is getting sick again...

Thank you!
I wish I had the space for a loft - I live in an apt in NYC. At least it is near a large park, so the pigeons I rehabilitate can be released here and I can keep an eye on them.
(I still have my Ralph, tho, who was born feral but has some issues and can never be released.)
Lilly was recently released after being nursed back to health. I was just worried that lice flies would indicate that she was ill again?
But, from what you are saying, even healthy feral pigeons can get lice flies?
thanks

Of the 10 ferals that I feed and watch over all have always had fly lice and they are all really healthy. It's nothing to woory about.
