    Just got home from the trip to Taubenklinik Essen, at 18:55. Watered and fed and put to bed the Cologne street pigeon. Wanted to catch the direct 13:51-14:51 train to Essen, but there was a thirty minute delay posted. So dashed and made a train scheduled to leave a few minutes earlier at 13:32...

    I have a bird that I picked up for a broken leg. When I got the bird home, I saw a triangular piece of plastic or metal embedded in the thigh. When I pulled it out, there was profuse bleeding and in order to stop it even before I dealt with the broken thigh, I had to put in three sutures and...

    Hi All, A member of the Starling-Talk board rescued this pigeon last night and took it to a vet today. The vet didn't know a whole lot and put the bird on Baytril. I'm pretty sure this is a massive canker growth. Anyway, I'm waiting for her to send me her phone # and location (I think she is...

    :confused: Hello: Three weeks ago my 12 year old daughter found two baby wild pigeons in a nest under a tree, obviously abandoned by the mother, as they were shaking and empty. So, we took them home. Years ago I raised one of them succesfully, so I took the chance with these 2 tiny naked...

    Hello: I found an injured pigeon on the way to work 5 days ago. It doesn't look like it has any injuries except for a hurt eye - it was shut and had a thin edge of blood on it when I found him or her (Bert/Bertie). I was able to walk up and pick it up and put it into my bag when I found it...

    I found a pigeon tonight, with a broken beak and a broken wing. I have him in my apartment, and have called the SPCA who will come pick him up, and than give him to a man who rehabilitates pigeons. Do you think he will survive, missing the top part of his beak? I don't think he can drink or...

    Hi guys, I've recently read a post about the use of some type of skin layers (which I'm no longer seem to be able to find), which are to be applied on the deeper wounds to facilitate skin regeneration. What I thought to be healed tissue on my Nicobar's head is actually bare skull. By looking at...

    OK, here is the thing. While I was providing fresh food and water to my birds this morning I noticed two of my Nicobars sitting on the floor. My first thought was that they prefer the warmth of the hay but when I better looked one of them had the skin ripped of his scalp. The other one was...

    I am so worried! 'Crow-Baby', a Pigeon of course! - my cherished survivor of his Babyhood's trauma of a viscious Crow attack, 5 months old now, and a good flier... Well, now and then we go outside to be amid the grazing ferals, where he tended to merely socialize a little and not do any real...

  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    What appears to be a young pigeon was in the water behind my boat splashing around. It was totaly water-logged and was covered with some sort of crud that was all in it's feathers. I got him out of the water and set him on the dock. He started to walk away from me and 3 gulls started to go after...

    Hi All, Noted from quite a no. of sources that pigeons love bathing. But I have problems with Beanie who would just stand in her bath tub, look around and not bathe on her own. Each day, for the past 3 months, I will usually leave her there for a while before cleaning her with a towel. She has...
