Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can you suggest how I can treat my pigeon for Rickets?
A. According to the Youtube video I found online, Rickets is caused by a deficiency in calcium and vitamin C and can be cured by hand feeding the affected pigeons with a supplement containing the 2 ingredients in question. The only product we have that contains both calcium and vitamin C is called Pink Minerals and may be suitable to your situation. https://www.petandgarden.com.au/pigeon-supplements/1636-pink-vitamins-and-minerals-3kg-bird-and-pet.html
