    Hi, This evening our cat came sauntering up to us with a young pigeon in his mouth. He has feathers with some dawn poking through. He had a small puncture in his wing but no blood and the wing doesn't look broken. Though he seems quite a bit awkward when he moves. We found this forum and...

    Can you medicate your birds while they are on eggs and have babies? I have a yb who seems to be going light and he is the only bird but I would like to treat the whole flock. I just wormed him thinking maybe that was the problem. It is a Trimethorprim/Sulfa drug.

    I've brought this up before but it's been a couple of years, but I just discovered today another hen plucking and eating her babies feathers. We've got a few new members, some of which have had birds for years, so I thought I'd pick their brains for answers. A short history...........back in...

    Hi, everyone. Two days ago I found a sick pigeon. I took him home and it's now in my cat's pet carrier. Its weight is very light, but I don't know what kind of illness it has. It's not so wobbily, but not as strong on its legs as it should be. I bought some crushed corn and mixed wild bird...

    Hi everyone, Rosie is our 1 year old feral rescue. This morning, at feeding time, she was stumbling when she walked. She seemed to fly OK, but was dragging her wings and flopping pretty badly when she walked. We thought she might have had an injury, since otherwise, she seemed alert and in...

    This may be a stupid question, but I have a squab, recovering well from "hip surgery" to correct a severely misaligned leg...he spent so much time in confined spaces during treatment and recovery that the tips of his wings were damaged. He is much better and living in the aviary but can only fly...
