Today I’m going to talk about the do’s and don’ts of introducing new pigeons to your already existing flock. Do’s -Keep new pigeons separate in an area far away from your pigeons for about 4-6 weeks quarantine (as you wouldn’t want to just risk loosing all your birds from an illness). -(WHAT I DO) So I would wash my new pigeons before putting them in the quarantine area, just to get all that stuff off their feet from the other place and also to feel the bird and check it looks healthy and keep a mental note of it. -Watch the new birds behavior and stance. They will most likely be standing still and not doing much (which is normal). A healthy bird will have a great stance. You should write down how the birds look. -Give the new birds apple cider vinegar in their water. Now this apparently is good for them but just get other people’s opinions on that first. -Add more points if you feel like it. Don’ts -Don’t put the pigeons with your other pigeons right away (no excuses) -Don’t buy sick birds in the first place (unless you get no say, I am with you as it’s happened to me.... once) -Don’t keep sick birds with healthy ones (just why would you do that) -Add more points if you feel like it. This is just some of the do’s and don’ts I have. Feel free to add more and share stories.
