Young birds sickness or Adeno Coli, part two…

"Take time to breed, it's the key to success"

I see it often, youngsters that are taken away from the nest to early. I really do not understand why someone would do that. The only reasons I can think of is to avoid getting them on eggs for the second time or the idea that there is not enough time to prepare the old birds as widowers.

If time is the issue for you, pair them up a week earlier! If the problem is your pigeons come at eggs for the second time seperate the old birds after 17 - 18 BUT move the youngsters with the hens. Put them including the nest bowls on the ground and make sure you feed also on the ground or at least make sure the youngsters can see the hens eat.

Do not take away youngsters before they are 25 at least, look at the situation. Are they really independent? If note leave them a few more days…

I promise you you will have less problems with Adeno Coli...

Best regards,

Apple vinegar has been a constant value with a few top pigeon fanciers in Belgium for years. They kind of kept it a secret from other fanciers. It produces a remarkable result.
- Maintains the balance of the intestinal flora
- Improves the digestion – Softens the feathers
- Aids against muscle cramps
If you are not convinced of the effect of apple vinegar, take up the next challenge: give a few of your pigeons apple vinegar every day for 3 weeks and the others not. You will notice that the treated pigeons will have softer feathers – more flower and oil on the feathers than the non-treated pigeons. As probably known, pigeons with a soft pack of feathers and a lot of flower and oil on the feathers have a very good condition and will be promising for the coming season.
