    Do I need to de worm my pigeons?

    I have never treated my pigeons with any medication... only ACV in the water sometimes for health.

    I just noticed that a few of this years young birds have grown up to be much smaller than their parents.

    Should I de worm my pigeons.... and also some have young in the nest... is it safe to de worm the flock when they are breeding?

    Also do you recommend I treat for coccidiosis too?

    I have always prided myself on keeping my birds natural as I can and not having to medicated... but over the last few weeks I have been having problems with my chicken flock with worms and possible coccidiosis... so its got me paranoid about diseases now!!!

    Thanks.

    I've raised pigeons for 15 years now and have never wormed my pigeons with no ill effect. I'm sure you'll get 50/50 responses on this one.
