Swelling To Wing Joint


 Share

Recommended Posts

My birds are just getting over an illness and they still have swelling to there joints on each wing. I have read that it's a build up of salmonella bacteria in there joints.

They are looking much better in there selfs but wondering if this swelling will ever go away. Is this perminant damage?

Terrible disease Kev have seen it wipe Lofts out and you never know where it can come from as the carriers can look the healthiest birds aswell

get rid of what shows symptons now ...and for the next few years, keep a close eye on what survived and their young...get rid when needed .....if pattern shows through young rid parents. Cruel disease and can take years to eradicate from lofts

I've spent so much money on these prisoners and all year dedicated my life to these birds, breeding and training the young. I've built up just short of 100 birds now. What am I ment to do, kill them all? I could not bring my self to do it! If I did get rid how do I know it won't happen again? I've spent 3-4 thousand pounds on my new lofts as well as birds, and all that time

 

Will this disease be imbedded in my loft?

I see the only alternative is to vaccinate annually against Paratyphoid proceeded by a course of Baytril.

You have to weed out the carriers so keep detailed records of your breeders e.g. youngsters bred & lost, youngsters that succumb to illness & youngsters that don't make up as well as other youngsters you house. Identify the carriers and eliminate from you loft.

you should really get a culture test done on 5 days worth of dropings and get a good pigeon vet involved the usual is 14 days on baytrill then wait a week to vaccinate you will need to vaccinate every year you should also look at if your keeping too many birds and look into getting a gas burner and do regular burn out of your lofts also be carefull that your food stuff is stored safely

In my personal opinion carriers of paratyphoid are the ones that show reaction to the vaccine

Would agree on that one

First encountered salmonella paratyphus many years ago very good stock birds that I had brought in suddenly had swollen wings and some could not get of the floor ,I blamed everything when in fact I was the cause of the whole problem . I had stored a pallet of feeding in my workshop / warehouse with all ok well so I thought until I got near the bottom of the pallet Mice had destroyed it ,There was the answer ,yes treat with baytril etc but they are never right

Disposed of all the birds showing symptoms then raced all the young of the remaining hard over two seasons the nests that did not produce birds were also eliminated have to be honest was just left with a select few .

Without a doubt in my mind pigeon lofts and food stores that have mice problems will never be successful

Good luck sadly there is no fast tract cure

Ps all my feeding is now kept in the spare bedroom
