  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hatchlings from found eggs (crop issue) I have two 5-6 day old hatchlings (that were mature eggs when I found them). The older of the two, which was the smaller egg, is having crop emptying issues. His crop has started to take longer and longer to empty. It will empty to a certain point, but...

    Hi there, Two days ago (Saturday) someone brought in another feral squeaker to me at work.

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I don't know what it is, i know that you have to keep the baby warm so that it can digest the food in the crop properly and my baby is warm, but b4 i did feed it baby bird formula that was cold/cooler than room temperature. What can it be and how can i fix it.

    About 2 weeks ago I found a baby pigeon standing in the middle of a busy road. I have no idea how she got there, but I'm guessing that she fell from the freeway overpass nearby which seems to be about 4 or 5 stories high. There was nowhere for her to go so I took her home. At first I tried...
