    HELP!!! One of my baby archangels had the back of his neck completely stripped. I finally put the two babies out in the aviary and one was attacked and didn't make it, but the other one is still alive. Unfortunately, the back of its neck is completely stripped, even a layer of skin! I rinsed it...

    Hi, I am taking care of a baby pigeon, 3 days old that got abandoned by mom. I have been feeding him egg yolks that I slightly warmed with a pipette every three hours or so. He is on a heating pad for warmth that I check every hour but up until now I had no way of regulating his temperature. I...

    Hi, We have a pigeon that was born on our balcony. How can I tell if it is male or female? Some pictures & video here: 6 new photos by Sergiy Belozorov. I have read that it's possible to tell by holding the wings and looking whether tail is straight or upright, but I am afraid to even touch...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have a baby mourning dove that is about 4 days old. I believe it might have a respiratory infection as it seems to be breathing heavily, its head tilts a bit to one side, and he/she has made a clicking noise a few times while breathing. He/she is also very twitch-y. This is my first time...

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey everyone! Long story short, a pigeon laid eggs in my backyard by the backyard door on a pillar thing we have. It's a heavily trafficked area and we tried our best to stay away from it, but it's right by the door and we need access to our backyard for our own pets. Seemed the parents got...

    Hi everyone, I hope this is the right forum thread to post in. I'm really really anxious. I have a baby pigeon who I estimate to be around 2 weeks old. He was found on the sidewalk and the person couldn't find the parents' nest so searched for a carer. I took him in a few days ago and he has...

    Hi. I have pigeons that nested on my balcony under one of the chairs. I know nothing at all about birds. The eggs hatched 9 days ago. I noticed this morning that they have been unaccompanied by one of the adults most of the morning, which is not what I’d observed in the previous days. I’ve just...

    Hello, I have a few questions about a baby pigeon that I currently have living in my garden. It took its first flight last night (we are estimating it to be about 4 weeks old as we have been watching it for around 3 weeks 2 weeks before this we had seen the egg in the nest), and has had mini...

    I posted a video of my baby on Facebook in a pigeon group im in and someone mentioned it looks like he has angle wings (when the ends of the wings turn outward) and I have noticed this before but just figured it was because he’s still growing (he’s 19 day’s old) and didn’t think it actually had...

    So my pigeon is now 19 days old and doing good, except he seems to not want to be hand fed as much as he used to. He used to eat quite a bit but now he only seems to want a little then gets fussy (he’s currently on Kaytee exact) but he will peck away at seeds no problem and seems to eat those...

    Hi my little over 2 week old pigeon I just noticed today keeps closing his right eye. When he has it open it’s not as wide as the other one. He’s acting fine and the eye looks normal except for this. What could cause this and should I be concerned? It’s it’s not closed all the time just he’s...

    My baby is 17 days old today and I’m wondering if I should still be feeding him every 2-3 hours. He seems to not want to eat as much (he gets excited for a feeding and eats a bit then doesn’t want anymore), and I’m wondering if I should be waiting longer in-between for feeding now. And if so...

    Hi my guy is now 15 days old and I was wondering if I should do anything different with feeding by this age. I’m still feeding him Kaytee exact every 2-3 hours but I was wondering if I should be adding crushed seeds or anything to the formula? (I’ve heard this on another site and didn’t know if...

    Hi guys just a quick question...is it normal for a 2 week old pigeon to flap one wing more than the other? For example, when it’s feeding time or when I talk to him he flaps his wings from being excited, but one wing is always the one to flap more and the other he usually doesn’t use as much...

    Hi guys. My pigeon is now 13 days old and he’s doing good. I just have a question, he will sometimes stretch his neck up and open his mouth then go back to normal. This usually happens after/during feeding. It’s not a constant thing it just happens sometimes and I really don’t know what it could...

    Hi all, I’m just wondering how long I should keep my 9 day old pigeon in the incubator for? I have a small bird cage for it for when it’s ready to go there, I’m just not sure what the age should be for that. Tia :) I don’t want it to get too cold if it’s not ready

    Hi guys. My baby pigeon is 8 days old today and I’m just wondering, when should I start thickening up for formula I’m feeding it? (I’m using Kaytee exact hand feeding formula). I’ve still been making it pretty watery but not sure if it should be thicker yet. I’ve been using 1 teaspoon of the...

    I hope this is the right place to ask this. If not, I will gladly move it to the appropriate place. I accidentally allowed pigeons (Peggy and Pappy) to lay two eggs on my fifth floor condo balcony. Pancake and Ploppy hatched well over a month ago, but I did not pay close attention to exactly...
