  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello: I recently found another young pigeon. He was about 23 days old when I found him, and should be 28 days old now. When I first found him, he was super skinny and light as a feather. He was also very dirty - he had bits of bird poop all over him, and large balls of feather and poop...

    Last evening I noticed my Candy walking with a limp and holding her leg up when perching. I couldn't catch her yesterday without chasing her and risking further injure, so left her be. I figured she had just a sprain since she is a very large bird (700gr+) and has a hard time flying and landing...

    Please can you help? 3 weeks ago I closed my pigeon in his aviary with a rat.I had no idea it was there until the next morning when I went as normal to open him up. He was clinging with his beak to the wire, and at first I thought he had caught himself somehow falling from his perch. I took him...

    I don't really know what I expect any one to do..........:confused: I had Walley out yesterday morning, like always. All of the sudden, something spooked him, I suspect a hawk, because at the same time all of our pigeons went inside the loft. Regardless of what it was, something scared him. He...

    Three months ago I picked up a pigeon that couldn't fly well. Now he can fly better but his left wing does not go through the full range of motion - he can still fly to the top of the wardrobe though. However for the past week or so I have been noticing that his chest is wet. I have been...

    Hi everyone We have a crisis in our "keeper" aviary. Most of the birds are moulting now so it has not been unusual to see them puffed out some. Yesterday morning, everyone was fed and watered as usual. Lewis went for his walk, came back home and checked the aviaries. He brought Ringo in...

    My little one has had watery poop for quite some time. I figured it was normal since I was giving him extra water between feedings. But I just fed him and cleaned his 'home' and discovered his poops are a yellow/orange color. It just appears to be just the feces themselves. It almost looks like...

    About a year or so ago, and days after a crew on my husband's job, on the Williamsburg Bridge, removed the iron where a pigeon had nested disrupting the nest. Days passed and since the mother was unable to find the babies, my husband brought a few of them home to rehabilitate (Willie B. is my...

    The whole 'red legs' problem cleared up, and I've managed to warm up the room so little baby doesn't get cold. But now his legs are going splayed! He is kept on paper towel, so hw should be able to get a grip, but instead he scrabbles about until his legs are out to the sides, then gives up...
