broken leg

  1. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    Hello, I have a young wood pigeon with sprained or broken leg. Before he learned to fly properly, he fell from the sofa and injured his leg and before it healed he flew and landed badly and the leg got worse. We don’t know what the damage is or how severe. At the moment he can’t stand on that...

    Does his look like the femur? If so, it's pretty much a death sentence from, now, the one place that will take this bird (sadly, the next county over has cut us off). If I =can't= get this bird to a rescue, can I splint it myself? Assuming it's a lower leg bone Any solid ideas appreciated. In...

    Hi ! A lady brought me a pigeon yesterday that she had been keeping in a box with water and seeds for a week until she could bring it to some rescue center in her city. Since the bird lost all of his remaining tail feathers overnight she panicked and brought him (I offered to take him in...

    I have successfully rehabbed feral pigeons time and time again and always been able to do so with absolutely no fatalities. I've always raised to release and have had success in birds ranging from 2 days to 2+ weeks and always have managed to keep them wild enough to release and those who...

    We've had major storms the past couple days and I've come across a young (mostly feathered) pigeon. He has a severely broken right leg, and our only wildlife centre (Toronto Wildlife Centre) is not currently taking pigeons due to high volume. I've got him on a towel, in a box, with the lid...

    This evening I have found an adult pigeon that is very injured. I think it had a close encounter with a car, and one leg has a pretty bad break. The break seems rather high up on the leg, perhaps even above the knee. The part of the leg below the break is dangling free, and the foot was...

    Just stopped my dog from chasing a juvenile pigeon in garden, it has some yellow feathering still on its head but feathering on wings has all grown. It's issue is it has a leg completely splayed out to side, I tried to maneuver it around gently and it doesn't go back to a normal position...

    Hello, I'm María and I'm 13 years old. Yesterday I picked up an injured pigeon(which I named Darry, of course) in the backyard. My aunt's dogs were fighting over it, it must have tripped somehow and they trapped it. I quickly put it in a shoe box with a blanket as floor. It seemed pretty bad...

    I found an injured bird and am now nursing him back to health myself because there are no places around here that would do the job. He has a broken leg, his back is stripped of feathers and he cannot fly. He has a big appetite for hemp seed, oats and bread. He refuses to drink water, so we're...

    Stella is a rescue of mine that took me over a year to catch! Even though she has a very badly broken leg and foot, she is very feisty and would fly away and not let me catch her. Unfortunately, it took about a year for me to be able to get ahold of her and take her in for avian vet care. She...
