  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...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a sweet 21 day old collared dove fledgling and it's chest looks like its crop has a parting of some kind. I don't think I've overfed it. It kind of looks like a split or long dimple, like it has boobs or a front bum :) I have not found anything about this online. The bird behaves...

  6. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    I can offer injured collared doves a good home! I already have 2 collared doves in my care (Flappy and Octo). One from London the other from Hampshire. They were both found as abandonned sickly youngsters and hand reared. Unfortunately, as young adults they are too tame to be released back...
  7. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi. I have a problem. I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question. I'll tell you what happened from the beginning. A year ago I found on the street a collared dove. Its wings were hurt, one was bleeding the other one was broken. I went to the vet, but he only treated the...

I will be going back to college in 2 weeks, and i worry he will be lonely by himself as i will be out for most of the day so thought he may benefit...
