Gorgeous fancy injured pigeon needs Northern Cal home

Last week, Mickaboo was contacted by the San Jose Animal Control about an very ill and injured fancy pigeon that, if we didn't take on, would be euthanized.

Within the hour, he (?) was picked up by a Mickaboo volunteer and rushed to For the Birds avian vet practice. He arrived in grave condition- ill, weak and with a terrible wound to his abdomen that was filled with maggots.

He's been there ever since and has made a remarkable recovery. The vets say he's a miracle bird. He's now eating on his own and his wound has almost healed. He's been named Winter and he needs either a foster or forever home in Northern Cal (he's improved but in no condition to travel).

He's a gorgeous, irridescent chocolate fantail with feathery feet and was surely a cherished member of a fancier's flock until he got lost and injured.

MickaCoo not only needs a home for him but we are soliciting donations to help pay for his vet care ($580 to date). Please visit www.Mickaboo.org to make a donation through PayPal, by credit card or for the mailing address to send a check. Please include "pigeon Winter" in a note along with your donation.

And please forward this along to other fanciers you know.

Direct replies to me at [email protected] are appreciated.

Thank you,

He is a gorgeous lucky little bird. Hope a forever home can be found for him.
I will contribute for his care on Thursday.
