What med should I have on hand and the best place to order them. We are 30 day away from having birds and I have to order supplies now so help me out with what we should we keep on hand. And anything you think we would need for the first 6 months.

If the birds will not have been vaccinated, you should get vaccines against PMV and Pigeon Pox.

May be as well to get an anti-Canker med such as Spartrix.

Any antibiotics really needed only if birds get sick, and which type would depend on what the problem is.

Get anti-mite powder (or Sevin dust) or spray, too.

canker and cocci meds are good to have on hand....dewormers buy as needed to keep fresh, calcium syrup is a good thing to have too, for hens that may get in trouble with egg problems, as sometimes that is needed right away

What do you think when the birds arive should we deworm them as a mater of course.
ask the preowner if the birds were dewormed and see what he says and go from there... I personally wait if they have not been dewormed for a few weeks as a new place can be stressful to pigeons...wait till they settle in then deworm them..that is if they have not been dewormed by the seller..
