i have read a few articles about it regarding pigeons and the experts say pigeons are a dead end host of the disease and can contract and die from it but they don't pass it on ,seems a bit strange to me but their you have it

Migratory birds have been arriving for weeks now. However. Weather in a few days should be OK for the birds to be out. They will go out. My alarm system ( the 30 or so feral pigeons) Will alert me. They are good tough birds. Hawk around I know it by watching them. Regardless, first chance open loft again. I hope they have a built in immune system to cope. Health wise very few problems over the years. survival of the fittest. JMO.

Yes. They are not racers or expensive pedigreed birds but survivors. Many years ago had a yb from them. Unbanded. club let me ship it. It went to 150 miles and was always in the top 10. Lost it after that. But was an interesting experiment.

Must also add this. Had a few young from the ferals come in to the loft on occasion. About 1 a year. Left them in there. Flew out with the young for a day or so then took off. If they transmitted any thing via the water then hopefully some immunity was passed on. Yes, some did get sick about 4 years ago but then recovered. Nothing since of note. Couple of cases of Paratyphoid over the years but basically nothing else. I can live with the status quo. But again, each to their own.
