7oz 6yo


The vet said she would hospitalize and tube feed if necessary.
His breast bone is prominent and he feels lite.
He eats on his own, definitely...
But I am also wrapping him to feed him fortified stuff, red palm oil, and meds.
He is extremely picky...but does eat, and drink.
I keep him warm, darkened, isolated...
When he is out, he will stretch and flap his wings fast without flying, preen, coo...

I have a few questions;
How quickly will he gain weight?
Will peas add good calories?
What else could I offer a fussy pigeon?

Thanks, Heidi

Can you give more info regarding this pigeon? Is this a rescue or one of your own pigeons?

Try to get a handrearing formula for parrots and parakeets. Mix with a little bit of water and form into small balls (peasize). Rather feed that to him, plenty of vitamins that a sick bird will need. If you can't get hold of that, peas will do.
