    There was a pigeon family who made their nest in one corner of my kitchen (where I keep my mop) and since I could no longer use the mop without driving them away, I made a cardboard box nest for them at another location near my kitchen window. Soon another family requested accommodation and I...

    Hey folks, this bird started hanging around the porch all day, fluffed, getting weaker by the day. (you can see how she's raising her forehead feathers). Finally grabbed her, prominent keel, weight 222 grams. The single dropping (with forefinger) is from yesterday. Oddly, her mouth and throat...

    Hi all, I hope everyone is doing well. I've been overwhelmed with work, which caused me to visit less often then I'd like. To the point: I've spotted a pigeon in the flock I'm feeding with yellow growths in its mouth and some yellow liquid around the beak and I'm guessing it's canker. I have...

    I have picked up a baby pigeon in very bad shape from the street. A side of his face looks covered by some yellow stuff - it's not pox, I'm not sure in canker can cover the eyes, or he has been pecked/hit by something. He does have a lot of canker in his beak/throat - I need to push the food...

    Hi everyone, In the last 3 days my adult bird has been showing symptoms of crop impaction: she ate very excitedly and towards the end of the meals her neck would puff up, her pecking and swallowing movements started looking a bit stiffened and sometimes she coughed while swallowing (I did not...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi I've just found a pigeon sitting beneath the feeder in the garden, he has some growth's on either side of the mouth which are pale in colour, he's very skinny. Can anyone confirm if this looks like canker please? I've given him one Spartrix tablet. I've just learnt that this could be Candida?

    Hi everyone, I rescued 2 days ago a baby pigeon (about 3 weeks old?) in the streets. It looked miserable. We brought it to the vet, and he said it has canker in a quite advanced stage. He fed him (not easily, because of the amount of mucus), gave him some meds, and we went home with...
