Going light can be caused by a few different things. Commonly coccidiosis. Generally it is just a term used for the sudden lose of weight. 

Good to see that hen has recovered George. I used to have some white sesqui tablets around but haven’t for probably 30 years.

It was a term I remember from many years ago reading the old magazines.

It seemed a bit vague. That's why I asked.

Not often. On the very odd occasion I have had one sick. They tend to stop eating, and lose weight. 

The worst, and fatal, case of a pigeon getting sick and dying was a case of Mycoplasmosis, which I had in New Zealand.

He had the ruckling sound and lost weight and died.

I think I have had Salmonella in my pigeons too. There was a general loss of health and bad droppings. 

The answer to a lot of these sickness is fresh garlic. The active ingredient of garlic, Allicin, is powerful against canker, cocci, ornothosis and all sorts of diseases.

In combination with natural apple cider vinegar, freshly crushed garlic is a great additive to the feed to promote good health. 

It's a winner! And not expensive! 👍 👍
