    I am hoping to get a homer kit of young birds in the next month or so wondering what others vacinate for?I am also shopping so anyone has some young birds for sale... I don't plan on racing at this time but do want to train as if I was just for the fun of it.New to pigeons.I will post pix when my loft is here.Should be delivered soon I think the great builder friend of mine who is working on it is almost done.Hard part is moving it on the flat bed trailer over to my house.He lives around the bend from me.

    Most vaccinate for PMV-1 and Pox [​IMG] They can be found at foyspigeonsupplies.com and other pigeon suppliers as well.

    Yep! The pox vaccine is the only one I am aware of that doesn't require sticking the back of the neck (or inside pocket of the leg, which I have no experience with). You have to pluck some feathers out of the breast, and brush the vaccine onto the skin.
