kept pigeons for 37 years ,racing and not racing , have a virus in my loft that was either brought from Blackpool or with a mob flyer coming round my huts. in 1981 a first had pigeons I got them from everywhere no problem with them certainly no viral infections not like now..then came jagging I think the beginning of the end of pigeon keeping in the uk ! throw in mob flyers commercialism and outright greed and the games f8888ked ! i'am surprised more pigeon men are not in the caper house or on anti depressants ! as for me I gave up racing but still have pigeons tumblers/tipplers a love the wee souls but to see them die and be sick breaks my spirit . been to the vets got BAYTRIL SAVED ONE another two ill and one has died . I never started pigeons to become a vet or a taxi driver for pigeons ,I started them because I like them and wanted to have them and to race them for a hobby . so there you go with my rant and as for me I am on anti depressants ! wonder if its cos I keep pigeons ?

Feel for you mate ,have had virus,s in lofts and not nice to witness birds dropping of perch dead when they seemed fine in morning ,
It's getting harder to keep birds healthy no matter how clean your lofts are .
