Wart like bumps on dove beaks and feet ,

by G Woz
(Calif.)

I have white doves, I noticed on more then 1 of my doves wart like bumps,some on their feet and some on their beaks .
They are dark in color and make the beaks deformed.
They are in an outdoor aviary.I noticed this on the younger doves just the other day.Some of these doves I have had for more then 3 years.Could this be a virus? or maybe mosquitoes.
Please help,
G. Woz

This can be from several different causes. Nutritional deficiencies can do this. Pox virus and other viral infections ca do it. Your bird should be seen by an avian veterinarian to provide diagnosis and treatment.
