eye injury

  1. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    One of my hens was beaten up pretty bad in the breeding cage by her cock. Cut on the head and both eyelids red and bleeding. She didn't lose her eye. I placed her in her own cage to heal. One eye has closed and crusted/scabbed over. The other eye lid has scabbed over but remains open. I've...

    This has been an eventful week -- I'd asked MickaCoo to keep an eye out for a suitable mate for my splay ring-neck dove, and they got a call on a one-eyed white dove at the humane society. MickaCoo is full and cannot take any more rescues, but asked if I might like to take this dove in and...

    Hi all, I have not posted for some time as my life has been a bit chaotic. I have, however, continued to look after sick pigeons that I find. I have to come and ask advice about an unusual injury that I am not sure how to deal with. I hopefully have attached a photo of the pigeon in question...

    If I should separate these into different subforums, let me know. I just dont want to be a post-hog. Lets start off with the eye injury. I'm going to guess the cause of it was a fight with Clove or Tundra, the most violent too. he has a big bit of swelling right off his eyelid and onto his...

    My Tundra is hurt! I'm not sure if these are too severe, but I need to know if I should just put alchohol or salt water on it or what to do. He has minor swelling under one eye, from a bite, and a medium sized, ugly cut in that area between the upper and lower beak. Uploaded with...

    have a 30 day old white homer that i believe was pecked by another bird. The eye itself looks to be ok. There is some swelling around the eye but he can still see out of the eye. Gave him some aitibiotic ointment around the outside to keep it from getting infected. Any other ideas on how to get...

    One of my new Satinettes was roughed up a little by the others and has some swelling and blood around his eye. He can open and close it, and I think he can still see, but may have blurred vision. I put some colloidal silver drops in the injured eye and carefully applied antibiotic cream around...

    My friends pet white homer went missing for a week. She was found with some injuries. Including an eye injury like I've never seen before. I have attached a pic. I have been giving her eyedrops. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Our 8 month old pigeon got struck in the head by a closing door on Monday night. We took him to a vet and he said there were no injuries that were visible to any part of his body including his neck. His right eye was swollen but he said there were no visible signs of any issues, no scratches or...

    I work at a wildlife rehabilitation center and three weeks ago a baby dove was brought to us and she has no eyes. They must have never developed while she was in her shell because her head is very small and narrow. She has tiny eyelids that are about a third the size they would normally be, yet...

    My bird got hurt yesterday. A cat (I'm asuming, but I'm not sure it was a cat) poked a hole right behind her eye. I started her on antibiotics and she seemed ok. Yesterday before we left for church she was doing fine and she cracked her hurt eyelids open which showed an eyeball that looked...
