I used to shoot on a farm about 20yr ago,the farmer kept pigeons and budgies and other birds too many to mention,he had pigeons in barns and huts that never got cleaned out,I seen mice by the hundred running over birds nests he never treated for anything as I asked him often what he did about the mice and rats. All he said was he lost some yb's to the rats but the rest were fine,guys used to queue up to buy his birds. Not racers i may add. Is it possible the racing fancy has wasted the natural immunity that the birds had by constantly giving the birds so many different medicines.

Racing birds are a lot different from show or fancy......i look ok from the outside but I couldn't run the length of myself
