Got my giant house pigeon hen in the mail today. the bird I mentioned in a previous post. def has the body type of a house pigeon, but seems to be a bit smaller then my other birds. Mine also look lik ethey have better rossettes,and clam shell shaped feathers on the back of their necks/heads. She is about the same size as my blue grizzle cock bird. The other hen looks huge compared to her. she is supposed to be a show quality hen. While I know nothing showing in apa shows, I am guessing I got a show cull. Either way, I love her. My mom even thought she was a beautiful bird. Still, I am happy about the purchase, and that I got her. Pictures will come soon. She does have better muscle tone then my bigger birds. Got to looking this bird over tonight when I got home. And noticed she has a deformed foot. It looks like the deformities broiler chickens sometimes get. Either its an old injury(possible bumble foot), or its a deformity. All the toes curl. One curls under the others. Also look like she has a healed calace in the middle of the foot, and scaley leg, or leg mites. The other leg looks fine and healthy. She's not having any issues walking on it. There is some loose skin on the effected toe. But no infection. So, how would I go about treating the leg mites? Would ivernmec horse paste dewormer work? Gonna keep her and use her for breeding. Just not going to buy from that seller again. Kind of bummed because I had planned to show her next fall. Oh well.
