    (Found on Pigeon talk) In treating pigeon pox

    Hi ya all,

    I found a new way to treat pigeons with pigeon pox. the medicine is home made and it works very well to dry the pox. its made from saffron, coconut oil and chilli powder. can be used all over the body but carefully around the eyes. even can be applied to chicks. the pox lesion falls off in 2 days after applying.

    The lesions start as small papules and gradually progress to a wart-like thick dark scab. Eventually the scabs will fall off and complete healing generally takes place within four weeks of infection.
