  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I got two rescue pigeons from a friend who couldn't take care of them. One of them is a PMV survivor and has been laying eggs. My friend said she's never laid eggs before. I'm in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She's up to two eggs which I've left in her box. I'm really worried about the symptoms...

    Hello! I was looking around the forum to see if there were any threads on egg binding. I didn't really have luck in finding any. But anyway, I'd like to discuss it since my Diamond Dove is laying eggs again. How can you tell when a Dove/Pigeon is egg binding? If they are, what could I do to...

    So my Diamond dove hen started her 3rd clutch of eggs a few days ago. Her 2nd clutch was infertile so I allowed her to incubate those for about 2 weeks. Now like I said, she recently started her 3rd clutch and though she laid her 1st egg about 3 or 4 days ago, the 2nd one hasn't come yet. I...

    Am I the only one who has felt that this day has been extra emotional? I've been crying over the loss of Midget, Kamz's necrotic dove who passed away. I'm worried sick about RescueMe9962's Cher-Ami who's broken eggshell is stuck inside, and I'm worried about Yopigeonguy's scalped pigeon...

    Say how do you feel for eggs? Does anybody have a diagram? I need to check to see if my hen is having trouble laying.

    Last night I discovered one of my hens on the loft floor, in obvious distress. After determining that she was probably eggbound, I got her on heat and used moisture and some olive oil to help her pass the egg. (intact - and the 2nd of her clutch) She's been inside on heat overnight and though...

    Folks, Much to my shock, my 2-yr-old single Birdy laid an egg last night. Obviously not the male I thought I got last summer! I am not happy about Birdy laying an egg; frankly it kind of grosses me out. However, I am not moving the egg or the nest until she gets tired of sitting on an...

    Hello, I have posted here before and have always received great advice. Some of you may remember me.... My name is Chad and I have what we believe is a king flyer. She is kept in the home and has never been outside. We feed her Kaytee Dove mix and some corn kernels. She always has fresh water...

    Hi all, I have a bird (originally rehab but she stayed because she was tame and bonded with another unreleasable bird here) who about a month ago was egg bound. Her initial symptoms were standing with a "hump" in her back and not eating much. On examination, an avian vet was able to palpate an...

    Ok, got this one a few days ago, seemed to only have canker, pretty bad, but was hoping flagyl and baytril would do the trick. He seemed to be able to eat, sometimes too much seed would get caught up in mouth and i had to clear it out for him to eat again. The canker is in mouth, the left side...

    We have to find a new home for our wonderful, sweet male cockatiel. I was recently diagnosed with Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis ("bird fancier's lung") and consequently we had to part with our cherished pigeon, Waldo. You can read more about that in this thread...

  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I recently came across a pigeon that was in an altercation with some ravens. They were ganging up on her and pulling out her wing feathers. I am a soft hearted person, and I couldn't stand to see them taking away her ability to fly and basically her only natural defense, so I threw my coat over...
