Hi guys,

on the odd occasion my pigeons have had smelly droppings, and just wondered what your thoughts were.

Today I have ordered some test kits for the first time to see if there is anything I am missing

The birds do look in good condition.


ideas?

Or anything that lowers the pH of the water to create an acidic environment in the gut - enviroboost, ascorbic acid (vitamin c) etc

Yes, but couldn't tell you how many days though as I tend to clean out twice a day, usually notice mould when I have been away and had someone feeding them for me..

Regards to everyone for the information :)
