  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, This evening our cat came sauntering up to us with a young pigeon in his mouth. He has feathers with some dawn poking through. He had a small puncture in his wing but no blood and the wing doesn't look broken. Though he seems quite a bit awkward when he moves. We found this forum and...

    We got a Petco up the road where I buy a lot of bird goodies and such and they are remodeling their parrot display area and they have these really huge 3 tiered cages that they are going to replace. They're really nice and would be perfect for my guys. I could clean up the kludged mess of cages...
  5. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I've always grown up being told pigeons were 'rats with wings' and filthy, disgusting birds. So I was edgy about it when I found one. I was walking into a book store with my boyfriend when he pointed out a bird on the sidewalk. I looked down and he was about two inches away from my shoe...

    Hi all, I've only raised two baby pigeons that were pretty much healthy before, but now I've acquired a pigeon that looks really sick, wouldn't fly away from me, and has fluffed back feathers. I don't know what to do or where to begin. I don't even really know what to feed it. Should I take...

    Three days ago, I found several blood drops (like 10) on my garage floor next to and mixed in with my pigeon's poo. I checked the poo and it didn't seem to contain anything hard that could have caused her intestines to bleed. She was acting normal, being affectionate and eating and drinking...

    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...

So tell us what an average day looks like for you, maybe a day off from work, what kind of hobbies you might have besides pigeons, that kind of fun stuff. Ready? I'll...

    The Plover in this series is quite injured .. not horrific .. but badly injured, so look at your own risk. The rest are ducks .. one with a bad leg and another with a nasty ear infection, and a new pigeon rescued by the good folks at Performance Testing Labs: http://www.rims.net/2007Nov21 Terry
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I think it's a dove, but I'm not quite sure. Our neighbour found it in his back garden I think. Either way, he asked my mum if we would be able to look after it. So we now have a dove (?) on a towel on a heating pad. He found it a little into the evening, around 4-5ish, when it's starting to...

    You guys have a lot of experience with canker, so I could think of nowhere better to turn than to Pigeon-Talk. My pet goose, Moody, has a canker growth on her tongue. It is not bothering her at all, she eats and drinks fine, but it is obvious from the outside as well as the inside that she has...
