  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    We found an abandoned mourning dove. The nest was blown away and the squab lay helpless atop our car. This was about 10 days ago, and it responded to our feeding and is feathering out nicely. When we first got it, the beak seemed normal. It can't seem to completely close it's beak now, however...

    I found a pigeon yesterday just sitting in my driveway not moving - it was very puffed up and it's beak was stuck open. It looks like it's blind as I can't see really where it's eyes are. I found this web site and made the formula with salt, sugar, and water and the pigeon drank it up. A little...

    I have a 4 day old squab that is eating and eliminating well, but has a big crop. What can I do? He does not seem bothered by it, but I was told that I should not feed him unless it is emply. If I waited for it to empty, he will surely die. I did give him apple cider vigenar and Pedialyte...

  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I found a pigeon on our balcony. I don't think he is well, and am uncertain as to what to do. I think he is very young, as he still has a fair amount of yellow down sticking out between his gray feathers. I can't see anything visibly wrong with him, but he appears very sluggish and weak...

She's about the size of an adult robin, she has short wing and tail feathers. Under her wings are almost completely bare, but this morning I...

    The poor little guy sounds like he's got some sort of respiratory thing going on. It sounds like his nose is stopped up. Not all the time, just once in a while. He's got a nest mate that appears to be just fine. Both are the same size, growing like they are supposed to, poops look good. He...

    Hello everyone. I need some advice. I have a small ringneck dove aside from my 2 pigeons. The dove is 4 years old. The dove stays in a completely different room than the pigeons, they have no contact. Anyway, my dove has been sounding and acting different. He seems like he's cold a lot...

    Hi. I've been lucky enough to have a lovely pigeon visit my garden for the past two years. I feed it, talk to it, and it sits on my garden table and lets me stroke it. He has a blue ring on his leg, and is from the Irish Homing Union. Via another site, someone has been in touch with the...

    Please help!!!! I need help after rescuing two baby spotted turtle doves. The mum was a new mum and a regular in my yard. She has nested three times in a flimsy vine type tree outside my window and my family and I have looked on excitedly. However, the nests she builds are very flimsy and she...

    Hi, everyone. Two days ago I found a sick pigeon. I took him home and it's now in my cat's pet carrier. Its weight is very light, but I don't know what kind of illness it has. It's not so wobbily, but not as strong on its legs as it should be. I bought some crushed corn and mixed wild bird...

I need help; my dad rescued a baby pigeon from the crows who I think must have got it dropped from the nest. The poor squab looks to be around 17-23 weeks old and its one eye is blind and its one claw...

    Hi, I posted this on my previous thread but thought maybe I should start a new one. Penny is definitely not feeling well. She's quite inactive, more so even than when she was sitting on her eggs. She's staying all puffed up and closing her eyes a lot. I noticed it mostly this morning but it...

He twists his head and is dizzy and falls over I cannot give him rescue fluids because his head moves all over the place. I have him in the house on a low heating...

    Hello, our pigeon just got bit by our pet squirrel. I am pretty sure nothing is broken... She can move the leg and walk on it but it obviously hurts her because she is holding it up. It looks like the both the top and bottom teeth got her. Not much blood... we trimmed her feathers away, cleaned...
