General Pigeon Health Tips

Tip #1-When using Aureomycin products to treat your birds, you should always take away grit as well as any feed or supplement containing calcium.

Tip #2-Birds will be sick and you may not know it until it is too late. Send in their droppings and we will analyze them and tell you if there is a problem. Do it before breeding at least. Pinpointing the problem could save you money by targeting the problem and selecting the proper treatment. I do it every month. Call Jerry for more informaiton.

Tip #3-If your birds don't eat all of their feed in 15 - 20 minuets, you are feeding them too much. Cut back on the amount until all of the feed is consumed in 15 - 20 minuets. This will keep any feed from being left over and also prevent spoilage.

Tip #4-Change your water every day, especially if it contains medications, vitamins or probiotics.

Tip #5-A dry loft, well ventilated with lots of light will do more good than preventative medications alone.
