Feral Pigeon, Bright green poop .. need help!


Hey everyone, My next door neighbor at work came to me and said there was a pigeon that was stuck over the weekend inside his shop. It didn’t have access to water or food for 2-3 days or so.

Anyways, now I have him. He’s been drinking water well. I’ve made an ACV (bragg) solution for him and he’s been drinking that. He has eaten some seeds on his own but not as much as a pigeon normally would. He’s fluffy alittle but, but not as much as a normally sick pigeon would be. He’s very alert. When I put water for him he will run to the end of the cage.
I played YouTube videos of pigeons cooing and he was responsive to that.. he walked up near the phone and squeaked at it, indicating he’s a young bird. I estimate him at 5 months or so.

As pictured, his poops are watery green with little solids. I didn’t want to medicate him with anything Incase it’s a liver issue and I didn’t want to over work it. (not that I have any at the moment if I wanted to)

He/she currently weighs .8oz or half a pound. I’m located in Ceres, Ca which is next to Modesto.

Update: I "force fed" it by opening its beak and dropping some seeds on his tongue and he ate them. I gave him about 20 or so small seeds.. i didn't want to give him too much for the first time. I'll wait a few hours and see if his poop changes to anything solid. ..

I just grinded some of those seeds, and during the next feeding i will mix the grounded seed mix with some garlic water solution and feed him alittle bit of that... Hopefully that's more easily digestible and it could get the nutrients faster. A handfull of seeds sure does grind down to very little amount ... I'll make sure not to over feed him.

He looks young, probably doesn't know how to eat by himself. Best to forcefeed will be frozen peas defrosted in lukewarm water. Feed him 30-40 peas 3 times daily, total 90-120 per day.

Put him on your lap, facing to the right if you are righthanded. Reach with your lefthand over his body and head. Have a pea ready in your righthand and put deep inside the beak over the tongue. If he spits it out, you are not putting it in deep enough. Give him time to swallow and continue with the next one. They quickly learn to eat peas by themselves, always leave a small bowl with him. Once he starts eating them, you can add some small seeds.

I’m fairly certain he knows how to eat .. he just doesn’t have as much as an appetite . Update: this is “his” poops this morning. There’s some solids in there atleast since yesterday’s feedings so that’s a positive sign. Weight is still the same. The seeds you see aren’t undigested seeds, they just fell in there. I fed him again today and will feed him again in a few hours

Update: Good news and bad news

Good news is he seemed to have an interest in food on his own 5 hours after i first hand fed him this morning. He ate some seeds and has been drinking a lot of water. He doesn’t seem lethargic. I did put him in front of the sun for 10 min today and he opened his mouth to “cool off” I brought him back in the shade. He must really like acv water because he sure likes to drink a lot of it.

Bad news is the poops are still green , and the last two poops have just been watery with no solids in them.

It would be a good idea to have a fecal test done by a vet, then you would know what kind of medication he may need.

Update:
His poops appear less watery have more solids in them. He ate roughly 60 + grains on his own today which is amazing news to see him have an appetite. He’s been drinking his acv water and he seems to love it- concentration doesn’t seem to bother him at all. On Friday I had him on garlic water so yesterday and today he’s on ACV. I haven’t weighed him but he appears more full and less fraille. I want to see what his poops look like . He’s at work but I’m watching him through my camera to make sure he has water and if he’s eating.

A healthy appetite is always a good sign. He looks much better than in the first photo. Lets hope he will be ok.
