Hello I have three pigeons two oriential frills and an Antwerp, they live with sixteen chickens that all do well together, the male frill as far as I've observed has liquid green poop, it's so green it looks radioactive, he still drinks, flys, eats, and courts his mate, but whenever not doing anything he sits in a puffed position, maybe he's just cold as it is winter, but does anyone have advice about the green poop?

That is really weird. Is it sulfur colored? If it is, then they might have Blackhead, but I would look more into it if I were you.

Green droppings can sometimes indicate not eating enough or starving. Sometimes it can also indicate foods that have been eaten, such as greens. I'm not familiar with pigeons, but maybe others can chime in.

I agree you need to check into this. A bird sitting puffed is never a good sign, neither is runny bright green poo.

You need to connect with pigeon experts as what ails a pigeon will be different to what ails a chicken.

Green droppings seem to be a symptom of most pigeon illnesses from what I have read. Here is the pigeon thread her on BYC where you can post: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/52/pigeons-and-doves

Also here are a couple of links to sites about pigeon diseases and treatments:
http://www.racingpigeons.biz/disease-and-treatment
http://www.pigeonracingpigeon.com/m...eight-most-common-health-problems-in-pigeons/
Interesting... I also have a couple of pigeons with green droppings. Thanks for the links.

Amprolium won't hurt, but i think you aren't supposed to give it with vitamins.

What wormer do you have?

What Terramycin do you have?
