    Hi everyone, I just found a feral adult pigeon in pretty good nick, who can't seem to swallow seed - there seems to be a blockage in his/her throat or crop. I suspect it's canker or sour crop or something, but I'm a newbie at this, so I though I'd reach out for some help. I've caught him, &...

    Hi, I'm not at all experienced in rescuing animals and am not very familiar with birds, so I'm hoping someone can help me with an injured feral pigeon. He/she cannot stand, but otherwise seems in good health. There are no obvious injuries I can see, it doesn't feel emaciated and is defecating...

    Hi, I have a pigeon hanging out by my garden with an obviously traumatically broken wing. He’s pretty active, but can’t fly. Before reading anything (sorry) I gave him bird food and water which he’s consuming readily. Now what do I do? Location is Ann Arbor, Michigan, US

    What are the good and bad points of using ferals to raise squabs? How long do you need to keep ferals in a new loft before letting them out to forage on their own?

    We found a feral pigeon with a broken wing. The vet places near me have said that they'll just euthanize it. It's already been at least a week since the first time we saw it with the broken wing, and only managed to catch it on Tuesday (it's Thursday today). This poor bird is not going to fly...

    I have 5 pigeons, one of wich i thought got lost somehow or a hawk got to her, but it turns out that she was having fun with another flock. Today she came back hungry as hell and she brought another pigeon with her. Finally she went in the loft, but unfortunately the visitor left running for his...

    I have a feral and a fantail-homing cross. The fantail flies pretty much with the same performance as the feral. The problem is that they don't get up and fly, they just hang around the loft all day. They were locked up for 2 months. Since they aren't true homing pigeons is it safe to toss them...

    So it's 17dg outside right now. While heading to the gym I saw a lethargic female rock pigeon among a couple active ones. They were eating while she remained fluffed and huddled next to the building on the sidewalk. I spent an hour in the gym and on the way back she was still in the same spot...

    The injured feral pigeon I took in looks healthy other than his wing. My Mom is worried that keeping him in the house may be a bad idea because either we or the dog could catch something from him. Is there any chance of that? I did buy some lice spray (just in case) to treat him with. Is there...

    I have always loved pigeons but never looked into actually owning one properly, now a friend of mine at work has found a racing pigeon which she is not returning to the owner as he is not bothered about the bird basically. She knows how much I love pigeons and is asking me to take him off her...

    How could a pigeon have one pupil much larger than the other? Could it be the result of an injury? He seems fine otherwise.

    Hi everyone, I have noticed that one of my ferals that I feed is holding her head and neck backwards and her chest forward. Today she didn't eat much and I'm concerned. What could this positioning of the head mean? Any feedback would be great, I'm afraid she might be in pain. If worse comes to...

    Greetings all pigeon lovers! One of the (feral) pigeons that has been living around our apartment building for a long time has had an accident with some sort of glue, apparently white (wood) glue. She was rendered flightless by it. The glue got her tail and flight feathers mostly. We had...
