We all no that B.O.P. is our biggest problem as the birds are not happy going out and being chased and killed at home,and radio waves are all so causing some of our losses, my thought for another thing is G M corn it`es coming in from all over the world now, I have seen that if i have to say wheat is the only one I no, as if some grows in the garden it grows about 2ft high, it use to be about 4ft, all so the amount of people that have wheat alergies now is it affecting the birds in some way?

good point ginger, I think its a possibility a pigeon could have an allergy from gm corn, as you say, some humans do.....maybe this is the reason for some illness`s we put down to other things.

very interesting ginger, and by the way, good to hear from you again...

If enough of us write/email to the people that produce our birds' corn, like Versele Laga, Matador, Vanrobaeys etc and ask the question regarding GM corns, I am sure they will tell us what is going on.

There is very little point speculating.
