    I just received this one about an hour ago .. It's been a long time since I've seen a duckling in such pitiful condition. The pictures are heartbreaking, so look at your own risk. I will be getting the duckling on a proper diet, starting antibiotics, getting it cleaned up, and pretty much...

    Well, my first pair of homers have another set of eggs. Shortly after getting them for my birthday and building them a loft they sat on a pair of eggs that proved to be infertile. They soon sat on another pair, on the floor, which hatched Dec. 26. Those little ones have really grown fast and...

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I've just taken on a young wood pigeon today that someone had found. I've not actually hand reared a pigeon before, and although I've read posts in the past just out of interest, never thought I'd end up doing it myself. I apologise in advance as I know I'm asking things that there are probably...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I work in a maximum security facility and am a member of FAUNA. Knowing this some prisoners have handed me a baby pigeon which has fallen out of its nest. I don’t have a lot of experience with birds. I have cared for a few in the past, but I mainly care for marsupials (I have taught baby...

    Hi :) I got a call from my sister today. A couple young girls in the neighborhood found an injured bird. It was by the side of the road, so probably hit by a car. This is a scary one for me... Wings seem fine, and she is eating well- No visible bleeding, but cocks her head to the side and walks...

    I recently rescued a pigeon that was being attacked by others. I called him bonk because he had a tendency to fly into the windows of the cinema. I live in Texas. I began researching his symptoms and they seem to match the paramyxovirus, but I'm extremely worried. I've read he can be pulled...

    Well, I'm going to be buying some new pigeon food, but my main problem is the names, especially for the peas. Canada peas, Maple peas, Austrian peas, Vetch peas, all from purgrain.com make no sense to me. I am going to get my ingredients from a health food store as there are no pigeon feeds...

    hello. I rescued a pigeon about 3 days ago. She (I think) was sitting by the side of the street for 2 days. I noticed her when I was walking my dogs. I know nothing about birds whatsoever. I bought a cage and got her into it pretty easily. She seemed unafraid of being in the cage and I...

    They both turned one month old today, so I went out and bought them a huge, heavy duty small animal cage. It has wheels and has quite a bit of space, tons for them to flap their wings. They are now gliding and flying quite a bit and were getting out of their previous home (a laundry basket) so I...
