  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    hello, Me and my partner have taken in what we think is a baby pigeon. It has all its feathers, (light grey) and dark brown eyes but it wont stand and it was just sitting outside on a step all day. Sometimes it will try and flap and there is nothing obvious (to us) that we can see wrong with its...

    OK, we have many many long time keepers of pigeons here, so what is the most common serious medical problem our pigeons seem to get? The one thing that comes to mind for me is the common coccidiosis, since they have it to some degree or another! Never had any problems with any of the MAJOR...

    We have two collared doves that are always around our garden and the nearby area. We have lots of bird feeders around and the doves visit the seed trays regularly.

    Hi there, Where I live people often find sick and injured birds and they drop them off here as they know I will look after them and try and make them better. Over the years we have healed a lot of birds and released them, I have only ever kept 1 as it was too injured too release but it had...

    I brought back this white pigeon from the 'sanctuary' as it had been brought in, found in a school playground. They thought it had just flown into a window and was just in need of a rest. It's poops were bright green watery so I asked if I could bring it home to keep it warm as it was in an open...

    My vet’s surgery is located at the rear of Pets at Home, so when I was leaving after an appointment that my dog Pippin had, I impulsively decided to turn back to have a look at the dog beds. On my way there I met one of the staff who asked “Did you forget the dove?” I looked at her blankly...

    A few moths ago I took in a pigeon that was most likely released at a wedding or something (thats what I was told b/c of her color). She/he had been attacked so I nursed her/him back to health. I was told not to re-release her/him as she/he is not suited to the wild, not to mention the fact that...

    I've brought a lovely pigeon home that was about to be 'put out of it's misery'. It has been at this sanctuary for a good 2/3 months, sent there by a vet I assume. It had it's wing bandaged when it arrived, but kept falling over and couldn't get up by itself, so it was kept in a cage near to the...
