    Hi, I have a pigeon that was just attached by a cat. He has a broken wing with an open wound, bone is sticking out. Pigeon friendly rescue said they are not able to help. Last one I took to them after cat attack was put to sleep unfortunately. Our car is in service now. I have applied French...
  2. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi all, A friend of mine told me today about a magpie he's been seeing with a broken wing. He told me that he thinks the magpie was down for a couple of days. I've been able to catch the magpie, get her into a carrier, and bring her home. (Of course I don't really know about the sex / gender...

    Hi, this is my first post. I have baby pigeon which is about 4-5 weeks old. He was born in my backyard. He has got sores all over his beak, eyes and toes. I am assuming it happened maybe because there are lots of mosquitoes there. I see no sign of canker in his mouth. But today while he was...

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has experienced any side effects from grit, namely Piminix? We used to have positive results at first, but lately the pigeons have been acting pretty 'off' following eating it. Nothing looks or smells out of the ordinary with the product. The birds go for it...

    I found a pigeon with an injured leg. It seems to be dislocated instead of broken. The leg itself seems fine but he can't use it at all it just hangs off his body and can be turned backwards and to the sides. It also has a bloody injuries in between the legs and on the side where the hip should...

    Today I found a pigeon on the street. It was trying to fly, but couldn't get up and it was clearly bleeding. I took it home and upon inspection found that both of its middle toes were bleeding a lot (may even be broken but I'm not sure). I tried cleaning them as best as I could and the bleeding...

    Hello, and I really do apologize for being such a newbie at birds. My dove has a blood feather that snapped and was bleeding. I pulled out the entire quill of the feather and now more blood is coming out. Will She be okay? I thought when blood feathers break, they should be pulled out to stop...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Today when I was on a run I found this pigeon by this tree down the road. In the tree there are usually quite a lot of pigeons and birds in it. (You can hear them) It looked fine as I approached it but then when i got near it didn't fly away but did this weird run sort of thing. I then realized...

    Please help. I just noticed a speck of blood on the wall next to Ambrose's crate. I took him out and found a ruffled area of feathers with some dried blood. I ran a bowl of warm water as I was convinced it was a puncture wound from Friday's disaster ( will explain in a bit) . But once I bathed...

    I know I'm supposed to read but I fear making mistakes so I've decided to make an account and ask for help. How do I catch him without him freaking out? These pigeons that hang around my house don't seem to like me too much so its only natural that they will freak out. I just don't want to hurt...

    Just caught a neighbour's cat dragging a pigeon across our deck. Stopped the attack and tried to determine the injury specifics, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Definetely tore a significant amount of feathers from the flesh from middle of neck to shoulder (where wing meets the body)...

    I have a Quaker parrot that appears to have a blood feather on his back. Has anyone ever seen this in a pigeon? Any ideas on what causes them, or best way to deal with it? Hugh

    Hello- Blue, a king pigeon that I rescued over a year ago and placed in her forever home last December has had, in the past 3 months, a recurring problem with the tail feathers on either side of her butt. They bleed and she picks at them. The adopter took Blue to UC Davis Small Animal Clinic...

    I have a Pigeon, Mr. Pidge, who is going to be 16 on Jan 17. I know this because he and his nest mate were born on a ledge outside my office in Fl on my birthday, but his parents abandoned them when a freeze hit the area. I waited for his folks to come back, but they never did, so I crawled out...

I put it in a large flight cage in my yard to get used to the area. I have at least a dozen or more doves that visit my yard daily so I was hoping this young dove...
