Vaccinating Your Racing Pigeons The Safe Way by Slobberknocker Lofts

The second way to vaccinate is much safer on the racing pigeon and has virtually NO health risk to the bird. I put the bird upside down between my knees with the birds head pointing towards me. Gently extend the bird’s leg up and slightly outward as shown in the pictured below.

Spray the area where the leg sonnects to the body with rubbing alcohol.

Once the area is wet, you will notice where the skin connects the leg and the body, creating a small pocket.

Inject the vaccine into the pocket. When you inject the vaccine, you can see the vaccine under the skin, which is perfectly normal. This method of vaccinating is less stressful and painless to the Pigeon.
