Pigeon struggling to fly in Glasgow


Hello everyone, I have caught (walked right in my kitchen) a wild pigeon who seems to have a sore wing. I tried to catch it two days ago but it still could fly a bit. I opened the door today and it was on my step and had left some watery white poops. I have brought it inside with food and water (has eaten alot) and it seems alert. I'll attach some pics of the wing and poop. I am located in Glasgow, Scotland. I had help before from two members of the forum about a sick pigeon. Does anyone know what's wrong with him? Could the watery poop be from starvation or an underlying problem? I don't have any meds for pigeons. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Picture of the right wing hanging down and watery poop. His poops are now looking a bit more solid after eating and drinking well.

If he was not able to fly well, he would not have been able to get to a food source. I think he was just starving when you found him. Obviously the wing is injured, but not broken.

If there is no way you can take him to an avian vet (one that will not euthanize him), just give him some rest and time for the wing to heal. Might take a couple of weeks. It's a good sign he is eating. Give him a decent dove/pigeon seed mixture. He will also benefit from apple cider vinegar in the drinking water 2 or 3 times a week. 5 ml acv to 1 litre of water. Let us know how he is doing.
