    Hello This summer has been awful for the local pigeons. It all started with one sick pigeon which, (with the help of members of this forum) was identified as chlamydia. Then it spread to most of the pigeons and now almost all of them are sick with it. All of the pigeons who seem to have...

    Hello I have a 2 1/2 week old bird that's not using his legs, if I support the bird's weight he'll try and walk but the legs are splayed out. I'm assuming it could be a calcium defiency so I've been adding that to the hand feeding formula since yesterday. I have the bird in a hammock type...

    Hi! I'll try to keep things short: I'm currently trying to save a baby pigeon. I got the little guy two days ago, together with his sibling. Both were in a pretty bad shape. The sibling, who was the bigger one but obviously sick, died a few hours later. The other one seems perfectly healthy, I...

    Hi all, On Sunday, December 7, I found a feral pigeon drinking from a puddle of water in a bus lane. She didn't move out of the way of oncoming traffic and seemed weak so I picked her up and brought her home. She has very watery poop (clear water with green, wormy feces isolated in the water)...

    I hope you can help me: I have a 2-year-old male dove who just started moulting for the season and seems to be having some respiratory issues. He was just fine yesterday morning, cooing his face off and flying all over the place, but after a very heavy grooming session, he started sneezing...

    Hey guys So wen i woke up this morning i realized that one of my birds had a sour/impacted crop. I massaged his crop and he ended up vomiting most of the impacted stuff out. But now it seems like a chunk of food or something got stuck in his throat and he is having difficulty breathing!! He...

    Please help me with some advise. My new fantail dove is sick. I have had her 3 weeks, and yesterday when I went to feed her I could hear her breathing and she sounded snuffly, with clicking noises. When I picked her up I could feel her chest 'popping' as she breathed. She does not have...

    Hi, I know nothing about pigeons; I am completely new to this. I don't think this is an emergency, but I thought this would be the best topic to post in. I brought home nine homing pigeons earlier this month. Eight of the group were out of the same loft and appear to be around the same age...

    Hi, I have one pigeon that is breathing heavily and has his beak opened a little bit. He eats and drinks no problem, his poo is also normal. He used to coo a lot but now no longer does that. I looked into his mouth and all seem to be normal as well. I suspect something wrong with his wind pipe...

    Hello. I'm having a bit of trouble with one of my Diamond doves Saihyou. Saihyou is a female, and she just recently laid two eggs. I noticed her breathing was a bit heavy, but I was told that may be because of egg lay exhaustion. Just today, I noticed a popping sound coming from her with...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everybody! A friend found a baby dove today, he was crossing the street and trying to jump to the sidewalk, but wasn't able to do it, since he is so small. I brought him home with me, he must be around 15 days old, he seems ok overall, asks for food, makes little baby noises, and moves his...

    A few days ago i noticed that my pet pigeon was slightly less active than usual, since then she has usually had her feathers puffed up, and a green coloured poo. Today, when i went out to feed them in the morning, she was on the floor and showed no interest in the food. I managed to encourage...
