Falcons, like all creatures, are infected with diseases, and some types of these diseases can be treated easily, while others are difficult to treat, so the falconer resorts to releasing his falcon away from the rest of the birds so that the sick falcon does not cause the infection to pass on to others. He must have knowledge in this field, knowing the symptoms of each disease and the methods of its treatment, and there are signs that indicate the health of the falcon, the most important of which is that it is clear in color, that it hastens to spread its wings, and that the bones of its thighs are level and moderate, and the most important thing that the falconer can know about is the state of health of his bird It is (the droppings) of the bird, because the droppings of the bird are like urine and human excrement

If the guano of the bird is coherent, uninterrupted, very white, thin-black, easily separated from its place, then this indicates its safety and that it is free from diseases. When it comes out, this indicates that it is sick with indigestion, but if the droppings are mixed with its blackness and whiteness, and the blackness prevails over the whiteness, then this indicates tiredness of the bird yesterday. And if you see the bird suffering from shortness of breath, lack of appetite to eat, weak body, and clogged gills, and its droppings are yellowish in color mixed with some blackness and whiteness, then it is afflicted with (raphidosis), which is a serious disease for falcons. His falconer refuses to give it Food It is enough to give him small pieces of lamb the size of a coffee bean mixed with goat's or camel's milk and put him on the den to rest, then he will recover and return to his first condition. If the bird starts fluffing its feathers, holding its head behind its wings, and sometimes placing its foot under its armpit, and its mouth is always open, panting, and its eyes are protruding, it will be hot and feverish. He heard a voice imagining to him that it was calling him to eat, and if the bird spewed more than it had lice in its feathers, and it is a dangerous disease with a large effect that affects the feathers of the prey and spoils them, and perhaps the benefit of the bird is completely eliminated, and the lice are born in the bird by the action of the falconer himself and by his negligence, so it is when the bird feeds the meat Some of it may remain in its anus, and it is fixed while it is stuck to it, and the bird is in the habit of putting its head under its wings at night, so if it does that and in its anus there are remnants of meat, it will be infected with lice, and if the lice catch the bird, it will deprive it of sleep, the pleasure of food, suck its blood, dissolve its body, and leave it skin on Bone and prevented him from hunting, and he may not see lice because of their smallness and their disappearance in the feathers, but it is inferred that they worry the bird and the fluffiness of its feathers and its extreme weakness. However, it is not permissible to cauterize before these blisters harden, and the cauterization is only in the grain at the top of the nose, after which the rest of the grains fall off the feet.
