Doves and Pigeons Diagnosed with Ectoparasites

These parasites develop from contact with contaminated equipment or other contaminated birds (doves, pigeons but also chicken or wild birds).

Columbicola columbae is a louse of approximately 2 mm long that feeds on remains of feathers and skin and causes itching. In these conditions of irritability doves or pigeons can’t rest. Easily visible in the light when the wing is spread, they can be found on the feathers of the neck when the infestation is massive or when the infested bird is dead.

Faculifer rostratus is a mite of small size (smaller than the millimetre) which attacks the barb of the primaries by causing holes in the feather, in parallel lines with the feather shaft.

Dermanyssus gallinae is a bloodsucking mite which hides daytime near the nests, in cracks of the wall, under the breeding equipment etc. At night, this parasite attacks the sleeping pigeons to feed on their blood. These non stopping blood intakes induce anaemia which can be mortal for young doves or pigeons.

Doves or Pigeons do not benefit from these poor sleeping periods and get weaker and weaker. They also loose their fitness and can give the nest up during incubation periods as they become exhausted, causing death of the embryo (black egg) as a consequence.

Argas or dove/pigeon’s tick induces the same symptoms and consequences as the dermanyssus. Its larva remains on the host and appears as red and black spots, the size of a pinhead, in the neck and on the wings. The ticks can be the hosts vectors of the paratyphoid and pocks.

Cnemidocoptes laevis is responsible for scabies. This parasite sits mainly on the neck, but can spread at the edge of the wings and to the ventral area. It breaks the base of the feather and causes a very strong irritation to the skin. Frequent in spring and in summer, scabies seem to disappear during the moult but the problem will start again the following spring on a more significant number of birds because it is a contagious disease.
