Its pigeon pox. You can apply cream( made for pigeon pox)to help with the boils. But pigeon pox has no cure and will go away by itself in 4 weeks. Vitamin(specially Vitamin A )supplements for birds will help too.

''HOWEVER''They need supportive care otherwise they will die ! You need to take care of them and feed them.

The baby pigeons could also have secondary infections since they are sick from pox.

You need some medications in case there are secondary infections.

Can you look at their throat with a flashlight? Do you see yellow sticky stuff?
How is the bird is it active?

I will advise you further on this once these questions are answered regarding medication and supportive care.

Yep, it's pox. You will have to wait for the bumps to dry up and go away, but it is contagious to the other birds. They may very well stop eating, and you need then to hand feed and water.
This had nothing to do with the birds nesting outside. This is caused by biting insects that are carrying the virus. Usually mosquitoes. You have to keep them out of your loft.
They do sell things to put on the bumps to help to dry them up sooner, but you need to be very careful near the eyes and mouth. They will dry up eventually on their own.

Hi there tat in my loft a long time ago I bought some very young squabs they had pigeon pox and only about 1 or 2 birds got infected but it didn't affect all my birds. This will dry and fall off by its own in a few weeks they will look good as new :)

Doesn't sound as though you would be able to feed them yourself, so you will probably need to leave them with the parents. The pox may get so bad that the parents stop feeding, or the babies stop eating. I would watch them closely, and if they aren't getting enough to eat, then you will have to learn to hand feed fast. Feeding with frozen peas that have been defrosted and warmed, or fresh peas that have been cooked to soft, then cooled to warm will work. Not hot and not cold.
