This for coccidia. One pill to each bird and repeat in 10 days.

Thank you for those links very helpful.

I have another question when my wood pigeon died his friend seemed lonly so one day i let her fly with my male and while they were together they mated. The other day she layed an egg its her 1st ever egg i didnt realise she was going to lay but she had droped it on the floor and in her aviary her box that sits on the floor was some blood im guessing its hers and wood she bleed if this is her first time laying or do pigeons allways bleed when they lay i keep budgies that very occasionally breed and ive never noticed that they have bled when they layed. I have checked her all over and there is no sign of blood any where on her and she looks and seems fine this happened two days ago and i havnt seen any more blood since.

Hi Rachel, Hi there/Bye
I'm so glad to hear your little woodie has found companionship with your male, after the loss of her mate. Circle of Love

As far as finding a bit of blood after she laid an egg, this can happen and since you haven't seen any more and your little lady is doing fine, I wouldn't worry about it. To be one the safe side though, keep a little extra eye on her to make sure nothing occurs. Smile

Rachel...make sure she has calcium available. I give my birds oyster shell and is always available in a separate dish in small amounts, such as a half cup. Should it get wet, you need to replace it right away because it can grow fungus.

Thank you i handle her every day as i bring her in and out of the aviary at night. Yes she loves cammy so much but cammy is very humannised and prefers people to pigeons and he usually attacks princess my female that lost her partner so i can never house them together butoccasionally i allow them to fly together in my house with supervision so that cam isnt to naughty. But i am hoping to get princess a forever friend soo when i rescue a racing one that is going to get culled.

Yes they both have constant acess to oyster shell which is in a seperate bowl next the their food also they have a mineral block in there cage.

You know Rachel, that's pretty typical behavior on Cammy's part toward Princess. My Romey was terrible to Sammy for about 6 months, attacked him when ever he got close and she prefered to be with me.{ I hand raised her from the time she hatched.] Her agression toward him was so horrible that I was flabergasted when I saw them kissing one day. They have been devoted to each other ever since and it's been nearly 10 years.

Louise had a similar experience with Jackie and Snowflake. She was worried Snowflake would hurt Jackie as Jackie has only one eye. It took Louise the longest time before she permitted them to be together because of it.
Often agression, in pigeon behavior, is the first step in a mated relationship.

I did read at the time when he first beat her up and they said it was a usualy thing. when i origionally bought her for him and i put them in together they seemed fine at first then the later that day he beat her up bad i had to seperate them as he had cut all the skin arround her eyes and it was constant he just wouldnt stop or leave her alone. I have tried several times since and if you are not watching he really beats her up again he just chases her pecking her slaping her grabbing hold of her neck it just looks so nasty and i know how it feels as he often does it to my hands or even worse my feet lol. If princess wants to mate he is usually fine but as soon as he has had enough its straight back to beating her up. He just seems to prefer his little plastic pigeon, they are in aviarys next to eachother and he would rather flirt and mate and feed his plastic one than take any notice of princess. Its just a difficult as it wasnt very nice the first time her cuts looked very sore and swollen and i dont want that to happen again.

Hi Rachel, Hi there/Bye
I'm sorry to hear about how Princess was treated by Cammy. Unfortunately that does happen. Disappointed

I would suggest not letting them together at all.
