For good accurate advice you need an avian vet, no disrespect to anyone but a local vet does not have much idea where birds are concerned, mix some glucose and or multi vitamins in some water and give to bird via a syringe

I can test droppings for worms and coccidiosis. I can't currently test for salmonella but will be able to within the next month or so. If you want any of your pigeons tested for worms or coccidiosis for free Safzola (you'll have to post droppings to me). PM me.

I'll also be able to test for mites too. As they die they fall into the droppings. So they show up in the slides as well.

Thank you..our local vet is having a look later and i will give him a poo sample as suggested...great site this by the way....we have 11 pigeons so its good to know i have somewhere to ask questions
Glad you like it mate, plenty of good blokes on here only too pleased to help where they can. I hope you manage to get her sorted soon, I would try and get some electrolytes into her as well. You could probably give her something from the chemist or If you look at the list of sponsors at the bottom of the board index you will find a variety of stockists who you could get some supplements from.
All the best
