Hi Alvin,

That information is on the first page of our website.

It is included under EMERGENCY CARE/TREATMENT upper right hand corner, in red letters.

Thank you

As long as this sticky is here, may as well toss in a few more links,
some may also appear elsewhere on the site or in threads:

I don't know how close these are to you, Retief Ehlers will see feral pigeons and has gained a lot of experience with them

You could try London Wildcare, Beddington Park,Church Road,Wallington,Surrey SM6 7NN Tel 020 86476230

Some pigeons make a complete recovery from PMV, but there is the risk of them having what appears to be a relapse. I have some that recovered and have lived without a relapse for 6 years. I also released two but lost track of them so I don't know how well they got along.

I would never put a pigeon to sleep because it has PMV and all the ones that I have nursed have survived. There are places that could offer a permanent home.


How strange, I posted this in response to a request for a pigeon vet in London, but that post has disappeared. I can't even remember the user name.

And a contribution from Charis:


I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years. But there was one, a beautiful bird, pure white with light grey tips on its wings; that one was different. It was a female. I had only to wish and call her and she would come flying to me.
I loved that pigeon as a man loves a women, and she loved me. As long as I had her, there was a purpose to my life. Nikola Tesla

hi guys I was wondering if you could help me- the feathers around my pigeon's heads are not being released from their quills. They look like they are covered in scaly quills on their heads rather than feathers. What is this a sign of?
