Bud i would seek full refund for the birds from Ronnie if he does'nt oblige contact the AERC if you need the details let me no the other fancier who as been effected by him as also contacted the AERC.
He just keeps getting away with it year after year somthing needs to be done take my advice if he doesnt take the birds back i would destroy them all disinfect all your loft and start again i will bet my house on it that he has'nt sold you any quality stock anyway because he doesnt even no what he as.
Steve...

p.s bud dont worry about replacing your birds i no a lot of roller flyers in this country who would be willing to help you out.

Hey Bud,
Pick up the pieces and dust off.Start again man,don't give up now.The really big problem is if you have falcons around.Last night I lost 2 to the damn falcons and one came in slashed across the breast.Now that can be really disheartening and make it hard to carry on in this hobby.

Hey Bud, I will donate 2 Ruby Roller young birds for August delivery if you cover box and shipping. Call me or email.

PS I will only do it if you cull those sick birds and carriers. No point in wasting 2 more birds.

Er, not wishing to pour cold water on Tony's kind gesture, but doesn't the Atlantic Ocean separate you, with a host of export/import hurdles to overcome?

Hey bud wayne told me the situation this is what i would do in your shoes treat all birds with batril anything that looks like its gunna die do it a favour dont let it suffer.
Next disinfect all the loft,drinkers and troughs with virkon s .
The birds you have wont be world beaters but i'm not saying they wont breed you some entertaining rollers for your own pleasure my advice to you is join the AERC and get round as many flys as possible and meet the lads, when they no your serious about the birds they will help without charging the earth for there birds.
Me and wayne are going up to middlesborough at the end of the month watchin the old bird fly the north east is a hot bed of quality rollers at the moment if theres room in the car your welcome to come with us.

Sounds like a respiratory problem have you checked them for canker? look down there throat for any cheesy looking stuff.
Batril is a very powerful broad spectrum antibiotic which should,nt be over used but in your case i would use it just on knowing were the birds came from.
Dont panic bud ive been in a much worse situation then you dont get disheartend by all this it will pass if you want the batril i can put you in touch with someone who is far cheaper than the vet but it means a drive to oldham.
Steve
This is what they same about canker

Affected pigeons in a loft may cease to feed, become listless and ruffled in appearance, and lose weight before death. Pigeons often have difficulty when closing their mouths because of lesions in the oral cavity. They drool and make repeated swallowing movements. Watery eyes may be apparent in birds with lesions located in the sinuses or tissues around the eyes. Diarrhea, increased water intake, and respiratory distress may be noted. Birds may die suddenly due to suffocation if the lesion blocks the opening of the trachea. The disease becomes more severe in birds that are noticeably emaciated. The thin weakened bird loses the inclination to fly and will "take to the wing" reluctantly.

WELL BUD !

Iam very sorry to hear of this set back to your loft ,

its a dam shame lads pass on birds which they know not to be in full health ...... with the help of the guys on here with their information iam sure it will be only a tempoary set back !!
i have loads of friends who race birds , lately i have approached the secretary of our local racing club , they have to vacinate each year in order to send their birds to race , he is willing to vacinate any rollers for me each year .... for which i will make a donation to their club ....... maybe worth a try for you ?
virikon is an excellent disinfectant , i also use battles black ....... which is very much like the old jeyes fluid ,only 3 times the strength ,

all the best

It is not just shame to pass on sick birds, it is unethical. It is as bad as when racing homer guys send sick birds to race and infect all the birds that are participating.

You can also infect your loft by your kindness. How many of you lend breeders to others? Sometimes others, which are possibly your friends don’t have lofts as clean as yours and their lofts are infested with mice and rodents or their feed is contaminated. When you get your breeders back, hell will break loose in your loft. Let us be honest, how many of you quarantine the breeders when you get them back?
