(Amoxicillin and Metacam) The eye is now open but it's dry and crustry around both eyes with...

    Recently found a pigeon sat near my house. It didn't make an attempt to move when I approached but I had to move it somewhere as my cats were around and I couldn't leave it. On the way down to the wooded area where I planned to release the pigeon (I had checked for injuries etc. and found none)...

    Three siblings from different clutches all with different eye colour - is this because ferals have a diverse genetic mix or does this happen with thorough breds too? Also what would you use to moisturise their beaks, I'm thinking olive oil?

    Ive heard of pigeons with blue, green, even purple eyes - but never seen them. Does anyone have any? Pictures even? Anything other than Orange, pearl and bull?
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A couple of days ago I saw a pigeon looking a little unwell in the shade of a building. Someone had given it a small container of water which it was drinking from and I presumed that it was struggling with the heat as it was pretty hot. It was still there yesterday morning, still drinking but...

    Hi everyone. I went to go check on my White King Pigeon a few days ago and noticed that his left eye looks a bit abnormal. When looking at him straight in the face, you can see that his left eye is only a quarter open as compared to his good eye. On closer inspection, I noticed that the skin...

    I've noticed that 2 or 3 of my new pigeons have "bull eyes" (I think). One side is like all black and the other side is like the normal red/orange color. So my question is, does having "bull eyes" effect their eye sight and/or performance?? I do have a lot of electrical wires were the loft is...

    A couple of King pigeon questions. How do pigeons see? Sometimes Angie, our King pigeon seems to look at us with one eye, from the side of her head. Other times, especially when she seems annoyed, she will look at us straight on -- with the beak pointing right at us. Any knowledge about...

    Same old story, found a baby pigeon... His eyes were extremely swollen, he looked like ET. There was some blood on the beak, not a lot, no injury anywhere. Gave him water and vitamins, place some ice around the eyes, next day took him to the vet. As there is no discharge in the eyes, the vet...

    I've got this little feral pigeon on my hands at the moment, not visibly injured, but he doesn't seem to want to open his eyes. He has opened them when I've disturbed him, but mostly just keeps them closed. There's no swelling, blood or any kind of discharge. Is this something I should be...

    Possible Pigeon Pox, maybe mites, Help please! I went to my coop today to find that one of my breeding females has sores around her eyes and a few on her nostrils above her beak. She does not seem to be in any discomfort but it definitely has me worried. I've seen pox in other species of birds...

    I have a chick here, right about weaning age that has looked... a bit off for about a week. He wasn't eating as well as I wanted, and wasn't behaving as vigorously as I thought he should. I took him to the vet last week. The vet checked him out, and didn't see anything wrong with him. However...
