Canker

CANKER ~ (Trichomoniasis) is caused by Trichomonas columbae ~ a microscopic single-celled organism and is the most common form of infection in pigeons affecting mainly the throat, crop and may include other parts of the body.

The organism is usually transmitted by saliva therefore in feeding, food and water are contaminated and during such behaviours as ‘billing’ or parental feeding of nestlings. Youngsters are the most affected before they have built their natural immunity.
