  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    About one-and-a-half week ago my now 35 day old Eurasian collared dove enthusiastically broke one of her joints on her 2nd flight. To us humans it looks like the knee but it's actually her ankle. It was a Saturday so only very few vets were open, and I quickly went to the vet who was. He put me...

    So we had a very strong windstorm today which broke my aviary right before nightfall. I wouldn't have noticed, but my dad saw angel walking along the deck railing in the twilight. I managed to catch her with difficult as she is only semi-tame(and the only one that flies). The problem is I...

    Hi guys, I came here in the hope of finding some assistance. About three days ago we found a pigeon loitering around the house by the pool and it seems to have a broken right wing. It tried to fly when being approached, but it doesn't seem to be able to go higher than a meter for about a second...
  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Came home and saw a pigeon sitting by my front stoop and it would not move that much. Sort of scurry away. I gave it some bread but it didn't eat. My husband later picked it up and put it in a box in our enclosed porch. He said the wing looks broken. Please don't tell me to take it to...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found this cute little guy (or girl) running across the street. Witnessed sick people actually trying to hit him. Couldn't leave him there to die. Captured him, and now I have him in a box at home. Right wing might be broken, as it looks slightly droopy, and he is unable to fly. Called so...

    I found a young pigeon just about ready to fly with a hurt leg. He was hiding under a car in a parking lot. I have been reading other forums about it pigeons with similar injuries. I can't feel any break or abnormalities from the other leg. He limps and doesn't put any weight on it. But he can...

    My poor little squab somehow broke his leg in the nest and I didn't catch it until it was too late. It healed itself in a horrible awkward splay angle and it breaks my heart to see him struggle so much. He's at the growing stage where his flight feathers are starting to come in so he's...

    This pigeon showed up in my back yard several months ago in N. Phoenix dehydrated, hungry, and nursing a floppy wing. After treating the first two problems, and tying the floppy wing to the tail feathers (about 4 to 5 weeks, but didn't work), he, or she has adapted pretty well. I am waiting on...

    *Sorry about the english, I'm from Denmark I have taken in 2 pigeons. It's about one month ago, so they are roughly 1½ months old. They sometimes fly into the windows. I hope that they soon will learn, that they can't get through the glass. But today, one of them seems to be hurt, after flying...

Went to pick it up and didnt move again. I moved it to a shady spot first to...

    I was so relieved to find this site and hear someone say don't immediately give a dove to a rehabber because they normally put them down. I have brought 3 birds throughout the years to rehabbers and none 'survived' them and I noticed an indifference that disturbed me. This bird crashed really...

    i found a young pigeon on the side of the road with it's wings fully expanded sitting upright on its tail. So I brought him home. Obviously there is something wrong with his feet because he/she cannot even be in a normal position. For the first night I put him in a towel doughnut so his feet...

    This is not my first time raising a pigeon or even my first time rehabbing one, but this is the most serious case I've had to work with. On Mother's Day, May 11 2014, I rescued a 2 month old homing pigeon with severe injuries. Her name is Hope. She came from my grandfather's loft, pigeon...

    Hello and have a good day all of you! Me and my gf found a pigeon on the street today. I tried to shoo it off by waving my leg in front of him but he didn't fly away. I thought he was humanized so I decided to go closer and pet him. When I reached for him he squealed at me and then tried to run...
