    Many diseases... but if you start off with healthy chickens and pigeons and keep the coop cleans then there should be no problems.

    However, its not advised to keep pigeons with chickens... because the chickens kill and eat the pigeon chicks.

    I've had bantam young pullets n cockerels, even attack and down, almost injuring healthy adult pigeons. Course had fledgeling pigeons attack and chase large adult chickens etc. Hehehe
