    A favor please? Question about your vet. Hey there! I was wondering if some, preferably all, would do me a favor. Can you check if your avian vet got any postgraduate education on the subject, and if they do, where did they study? I'm doing some research on the topic, and the only avian vet I...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    hello, Me and my partner have taken in what we think is a baby pigeon. It has all its feathers, (light grey) and dark brown eyes but it wont stand and it was just sitting outside on a step all day. Sometimes it will try and flap and there is nothing obvious (to us) that we can see wrong with its...

    Back at home in Epinal, France, I was happy to discover a nest on the floor of one of my balconies with two lovely pigeonots about three weeks old. This was 3 days ago. For the moment I have only seen one parent come to feed them so I gather it is the father as I suppose the mother was already...

    Hi everyone, I’m looking for help, information, and advice, anything that will aid my sick birds. As Charis suggested starting a new thread describing my birds’ problem here I am. It started three years ago when one of the houses in the neighborhood was sold and new owners moved in. Existing...

    Folks, Much to my shock, my 2-yr-old single Birdy laid an egg last night. Obviously not the male I thought I got last summer! I am not happy about Birdy laying an egg; frankly it kind of grosses me out. However, I am not moving the egg or the nest until she gets tired of sitting on an...

    I have described this problem under another thread called "Listless bird...again" but now the issue has been focused. The vet did xrays, blood tests, fecal exam, throat etc....no diagnosis except a slightly enlarged heart and liver and low heart rate (around 100). No infection shows up in the...

    I'm just curious how many people here take their birds to an Avian Vet?

    Earlier today my boyfriend found an adolescent pigeon on the university campus. It was sitting on the ground. He took it home and it does flap it's wings and move around a bit, but it's left leg is injured. At the "knee" it is fat and swollen and discolored green. He can't move his toes or...

    Ok, got this one a few days ago, seemed to only have canker, pretty bad, but was hoping flagyl and baytril would do the trick. He seemed to be able to eat, sometimes too much seed would get caught up in mouth and i had to clear it out for him to eat again. The canker is in mouth, the left side...

    Found an injured pigeon downtown Portland today. It's now temporarily in a safe environment with food/water, but can't stay here. Called Audubon Society, but they don't take in pigeons. Is there a rescue group in Portland?

    Had a few things I've managed to figure out to make life with pigeons easier, and wanted to share with you all. First off, water dishes.....I use a large tub for their water, which they also bathe in and slosh all over the shavings and make a general mess. Somehow after years of this, I...

    I am new to this site and am looking for help with a baby voorburg. His parents I believe were shot out of the sky and I am now his mother. He is a month old now. The first two days were the toughest because of hand feeding, Then he started eating and drinking on his own, and really had quite a...

    I'm in the Sherman Oaks California. My neighbor found a pigeon in her front yard which can't fly. She put it into a large cat carrier and called me (I'm the animal person on the street). I know nothing about birds. The only bird I tried to save died at the vet, so I don't feel good about that...

    Dear Pigeon Life members, I am writing to let you know of the pending sale of Pigeon-Life.net, which includes this web site content and discussion boards. This decision did not come lightly for me. And while I am sad to see my time as owner come to an end, I am very excited about the future...

    One of the pigeons that come in my garden has been very ill yesterday and today I managed to grab her and take her inside. Since yesterday she started to walk funny and now when I inspected her wing there are some bones sticking out a bit or it could be some stuck together feathers, she is a bit...

    Hi. Moody needs larger gravel for grit, but as it's not landscaping season, it's hard to find. I was wondering offhand if it would be possible to use AQUARIUM rocks for her grit. The uncoated kind, I guess. But they might be painted. But it might, again, be possible to find unpainted ones...

    Seeing as my vet is being absolutely ridiculous and not responding to me, I have decided that due to the fact that she is not as specialized in avian medicine as I thought she was, I'm going to have to take this on myself. First order of the day is purchasing or renting, borrowing or just using...

    Please, someone help me... I don't know what's on my hands but I am not liking it at all! Please... So, tonight Moody went into the bath. I had a friend over and Moody got really anxious. She was really attacking my friend and was not happy. I started to smell blood, so I figured she was going...

    About 5 days ago, i found a baby dove in my backyard at the base of the date palm that is home to a flock of feral doves. Based on the day-by-day photos of racing pigeon babies here, I have concluded that she is about 17 days old now. http://www.speedpigeon.com/baby_racing_pigeon.htm At...
