    Hello, I recently adopted a pigeon who has one leg. I am in the process of quarantining her from my parrots, pending vet visit on 8/31. She is in a giant dog crate, lined with newspaper. I put a basket in for her with a towel in it, which she used for the first week, but now completely avoids...
  2. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi all, Two days ago Margo caught her toe-nail / talon on a towel on the way to the vet. It happened again at the vet and somehow Margo managed to actually tear her toe-nail / talon off! They were able to stop the bleeding (including by using a K2 injection), and I took her home on Tuesday...

    A few days ago I noticed that there was a cut aroud one of his toes. He was walking just fine yesterday but now he sort of limps or hops around in one leg. His toe also looks very swollen. FYI this isn't my pigeon. He made a nest in my balcony a few months ago and the second set of eggs have...

    Is there a way I can still repair/fix the right foot of my dove? It is almost 3 weeks old. This is the first time I have taken care of doves so I did'nt know they needed good footing when they hatch. Thank you!

    Two weeks ago I found a young pigeon that had got the tips of its two middle toes caught in a garage door as it closed. She was hanging by her feed from the door and had probably been like that for hours. I took her home and now she is eating and drinking fine on her own and flying and walking...

    Hello everyone, I rescued a feral pigeon over a year ago from string injury. It was not early enough, and despite over an hour of cutting away the Halloween web decoration (DON'T USE THEM OUTDOORS!!), the foot and leg had swollen and the back toe bent under the other toes badly. It has been a...

    Let me start by saying that in the country I live in, the only animals that can receive treatment are cats and dogs because birds are not as costly as those pets and therefore there are almost no experts that I can find around me. So I am pretty much on my own here, need your expertise. One...

    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...

    Found an injured bird here in the ground in Abu Dhabi (Dubai's neighbor). The government said they don't have rescue for pigeons. He appears to have a broken right foot and injured right wing. When found he was pulling himself along to get into the shade (you have no clue how hot the sun is in...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone I spotted a pigeon sitting on the ground last night who couldn't fly, was too dark to see what was up but I brought him back and got him settled in an old guinea-pig hutch with some food and water. Glad to say he (or she?) survived the night, and is now sitting out in the old run...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I found a pigeon in the driveway at the LAX USPS. It was leaning to one side and couldn't fly or walk much. I think something might be wrong with one foot and one wing, but I can't tell. I didn't find any blood on it anywhere. It seems a bit small to me as a bird and I'm also wondering...

    Hello, My eight-year old Delbar white cock has some sort of wart or dry looking fungus growing on the bottom of his feet. I have only had him for three months, but it seems a little bigger????? It is more on one foot than the other and more in between the toes. It does not look like any of...

    This evening I went to feed my pigeons king pigeons and noticed one is not using its leg, its tucked up into the body. It seem painful for the bird to walk on that foot. It also can not use the foot to grip the perches. The foot is clean and not swollen or cut. But the ends of each toe are...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi all. I just signed up to Pigeon Talk as I wanted to ask for some advice. There are quite a few feral pigeons that hang about outside my window. I occasionally feed them, and I noticed that one of them always stands on one leg. On the occasions that he does set the other foot down I can see...

    Hey everyone, this is my first and probably my only time posting here but i've always had a thing for animals and I saw this pigeon while waiting for my train to arrive that appeared to have a brown growth on one of his legs and the leg didn't seem to function. I assume it to be a cyst or...

    Pigeon lived with me for 3 years. It walked fine, but then before my very eyes, its foot gave away. Pigeon has probably pain in one foot because it cannot stand on it. Also, when it stands on good foot and tries to put the sick foot away under her feathers the foot does not hide all the way in...
  19. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I live in New York City so I see a lot of pigeons around everyday. There is this one pigeon I run into everyday that seems to have some foot problem. Its left foot is yellowish and swollen around the toes and it seems to give the poor bird a lot of discomfort. I often times see it standing on...

    Hello all, I took in a young dove, my cat had just grabbed it and I scared it off and rescued the dove. The youngster was shook up but seemed ok. A few feathers missing (no blood) and a couple of places where the skin appeared to have been scratched but not broken. (August 2nd) The next day she...
