    I just saved a baby pigeon that was attacked by an aggressive pigeon on it's first flight. I know this wasn't a parent, as I am very familiar with my local feral pigeons by feeding them and caring for the random baby with tied up legs from hair & wire. I had been hearing non-stop squeaks for...

    My friend brought me an injured pigeon yesterday, and after it made the night in a dog crate, I explored its injuries by bathing him. He's got a gaping wound on his chest in front of his breast bone, I can see between his crop(maybe) and other muscles. I think it needs stitches, and I don't...

    A few weeks ago, a pigeon laid eggs on my balcony. They've hatched and grown quite a bit. They can't fly yet, but they are almost completely covered in feathers except for a few hairs on their head. They still make the "baby pigeons noise". They are big enough that sometimes I confuse one for...

    Hello, A pigeon couple laid eggs in a pot in my balcony around a month back. The hatchlings were born out of those eggs. Yesterday night, when these hatchlings got almost 10-12 days big, the parents left these alone for all night (I checked from 10 o'clock to 1:30 in night), which was pretty...

    We have recently aquired two racing pigeons. They circle the house a little each day, but today were gone a little longer than usual. When they came back, one had a small cut between her wings, on her back. There's no pulsing, or flowing, just a good scrape of some sort. Not sure if she was...

    Help, please! My mourning dove was attacked by my love(hate!)bird a few days ago. She is now missing half of the top part of her beak. I took her to a bird specialist who trimmed the lower part of the beak to be shorter like the top half. She said this would help the dove eat easier , as the...
  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Yes, it's me again :( Was working and happened to look out of the window to find a feral pigeon stuck in one of my bushes. I freed him, and soon found why he was there - he'd been attacked by a cat. The cat kept trying to get at him, but I brought him inside, gave him some seeds and water, and...
