With his wet pox do they dry the same way as his dry poxs. As of today they don't seem to brother him much for now. One of them seem to be brown or turning dark like his dry pox did. If they do dry like then when they fall off will he swallow then or try to spit then out.

Maybe you can check every day, and if the growth seems to become loose then you can use a earbud to remove it. That's what I did with a dove that had a pox growth on his vent.

For our little one it around 2 days ago. They not loose yet. They don't seem to grown much bigger. He pretty much on seeds only now today he went straight to his new seeds. What might help your little one out is making sure he/she is warm. We make sure our little one clean and very cozy. We now have a little heating light above his cage sense. The Ac makes it to cold for him. It helped a lot once I read that when fighting Pox it's important to keep then warm and very clean. To prevent them from getting other infections while they have Pox.

Thank you for your info Wingsoul.
Our room temp is abt 29-32 degree in the day and at night if AC is running outside the temp about 26-28 in the room with door slightly open for some air circulation.
I will keep it warm.

Last night his biggest lesson finally came off. Then this morning the last one on his face fell off as well. He looks so much happier now. The only ones he has left is the growths in his eye lead. It look like it took part of his beak with them through. He has much more engry as well. We so happy for him.

Nice that some have come off. Can't really tell the damage to the beak from those pics.

I'm so happy for you. He looks like a totally different bird. So again, a vet was proven wrong when he told you "it's only a matter of days now". Thanks for the patience and taking such good care of him. I hope you're planning on keeping him, he had quite a rough start in life. What about the pox in the mouth?

They pretty much gone. He decided it was time to leave the nest. We took for sunbathing he gave a look to me, then to to trees then looked back to me once more. Then he took off straight into the sky. I'm a crying miss. I'm diffently miss him but he a very strong Dove that deserves to be free. He our little champ Aurara we called him.

After me and my husband cried our hearts out. He comes home after 3 hours. Sense he returned we have talked about keeping him before he flew off. Thought he deserved being free when he came back. We do want to keep him as well. He become very attached to us and Vic's versa.

Please don't let him outside. He is in no way ready to be on his own. He doesn't even know how to find food or water out there, and isn't healthy enough yet. He won't last out there. If you must take him outside for sun, then do it in a cage where he cannot get away. With the way the pox has changed the beak, I'm not sure how well he will be able to eat on his own. Is he picking up seed?
Can he pick it up off the floor, if not in a dish? If he were free, that is how he would be picking up a lot of seed. Under feeders on the ground. Not in a dish.

Build him a nice little aviary with a small shed to roost in and he'll be happy as Larry - so will you knowing he will always be safe from predators. Pave the floor under the shed and the flight area so as rats can't dig under and get to him and use wire that's too small for them to ge in also. Job done!

He's looking fab, well done to both of you.
