    Hello. Two wild baby pigeons (big, maybe a month old?) have been nesting inside a storage box on my deck and are out and walking around on the large deck. But both have hard poop balls on their feet. Do I really need to try and catch these wild birds and remove the poop? Or will it come off by...

    Hi! :) On Wednesday I caught a pigeon with a really bad string feet injury, that is all well for now-- the string has been removed, he's on antibiotics, cream for his feet, "shoes" etc. What is worrying me is that he's not eating. He is an adult pigeon and was eating fine outside... but after...

    i found a young pigeon on the side of the road with it's wings fully expanded sitting upright on its tail. So I brought him home. Obviously there is something wrong with his feet because he/she cannot even be in a normal position. For the first night I put him in a towel doughnut so his feet...

    Hi, I found a pigeon and his feet are tangled in thread. I have tiny salon eye brow scissors to try and remove the thread, but I was wondering if this is the best method to remove it? Is there anyway to soak the feet /w something so the thread breaks down on its own? I can provide a picture if...

    I've noticed my newest dove, Ivy, stamp her feet alternatively and quickly... sometimes when she was nervous, but other times she was just sitting there, and started doing it. I thought it was just her trying to get a grip for a while, but she's done it when she's on a flat surface or comfy...

    I live in NYC and my apartment courtyard has turned into a mourning dove aviary. As a child I had a dove lay an egg on my windowsill (no nest - just bricks so super weird) and my mom told me it was a sign from my father who passed so I always loved doves since. I was happy when they moved in a...

    Hi everyone! I went to put my dove in his cage yesterday and I noticed his feet were cold. Not COLD, actually they were pretty much close to room temperature. I thought it was because maybe body temp gets lower at night. Today I took him out, and his feet were still cold. He eats, moves, and...
