    I have a pigeon that is about 15 - 17 days old, I found it on the floor in our loft. I have hand reared lots of birds, and never had as many problems as with this one. When I first started feeding, it was severely dehydrated, 3 days after I started caring for it, it was a healthy, chirpy...

    Never a dull moment... This is Nancy, my 7 month old young bird hen. She isn't feeling well, but I'm not sure what's up. In the pic, she's wingslapping at the flash, but I don't like her posture otherwise. She is unmated, and has not been receptive to any courting attentions from the...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello I have been taking care a PMV pigeon since Wed. She has now a swollen crop and I am not sure whether it is crop stais or an air sac rupture. Her PMV syntomps (Star gazing) have gotten better since Wed. She is very hungry and comes to the food bowl as soon as she see me. She has been...
