    the longer you can leave yer ybs off any treatments the better I don't usually treat ybs for anything until they start training and then only a periodic canker treatment I find the regular use of certain supplements oregano and a few herbs is all keeps them well with good food and plenty access to minerals etc...the thing with ybs is a lot of fanciers cram them in the lofts on the darkness system and get bacterial issues and scream they got young bird sickness by this time the unsuspecting fanciers dilly dally with the illness and ybs die on them ,if you have a bacterial issue you need to treat or cull and no natural products will get you out the mire you need to treat and the sooner the better ,I would and have used furaltadone for bacterial issues in isolated cases and indeed 4 years ago when I had imported some ybs with a problem ,those ybs went on to race the programme and score and some are still in the loft today and have not been treated since so their is a place for medication I think in certain instances but certainly not to prop pigeons up but a yb team with a bacterial issue would need to be treated if you did not want to see dead ybs ,now a virus is a different thing all together and the 2 get mixed up with every pigeon fancier being his own vet and this is the problem

    The last time I raced was in the Filey club, four years ago.

    I had every possible assistance from every member, including a youngster who is a successful fancier in his own right, the members could not do enough for me in every respect.

    However, I just cannot not do my share and lifting baskets etc; onto the transporter is now far beyond my capabilities, so I sadly had to stop racing.

    Prior to that it was in the Scarborough Flying Club which I resigned from after serving as President and Chairman for several years because I could not be involved with a certain person who in my opinion should not be in any sport.

    The last time I raced in the latter I won several races both with young and old birds including second Thurso in the first Thurso race and first in the second Thurso race and 3rdand 4thfrom Lerwick, on the day when my first two best entries escaped at basketing.

    What this has to do with anything pertaining to the pigeons health I know not.

    Regards.

    Slimey dark green droppings, sicking up undigested food, holding small amounts of food in the bottom of their crop unable to digest it.
    Something goes wrong with their head gear they seem vacant, And when you shake them in from excersise some that usually trap well will just sit on the roof of the loft and look at you blankly, (not to be mistaken from when they’ve had a spook) when they’ve had a spook you can still see they’re perky.
    Lack of appetite is usually the first sign of it, then the next day they go down hill.

    Food for thought. Over the years have raised many thousands of pigs. Farrow to wean to market. So vet visited on a regular basis. New health threat etc,. Always something. Sterile environment, medications, virus shots. All followed meticuosly. I asked one trainee vet one time "How come it never ends?" "To build an immune system a person would lose hundereds of thousands of animals. Virus? They have offshoots. They adapt. They are slow to take hold but when they do they stay."

    denise,
    As far as I am aware I have never had the problem with my pigeons, nor any of the other ailments some fanciers pigeons appear to suffer from.

    So I am unable to tell you anything regarding same.

    That does not mean that my pigeons have never encountered such problems but have shown no signs of doing so and could have dealt with the problems themselves.

    I just hope you have the same luck as I have had.

    But at the same time you can help by giving your pigeons the best chance of dealing with any problem by treating them in a manner that nature tells you and not what the self proclaimed experts tell you, because in all probability it will be they who have caused the problems in the first place.

    But above all just enjoy your pigeons and take any success as a bonus.

    Regards.
