  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    My pet dove has something growing on the bottom corner of his beak. I don't think it was there a few weeks ago. It's 4am Saturday, no vets are open, and there or no good bird vets near me within 150ish miles, I cant go to vet today(saturday) and most are closed Sunday. Does anyone know what this...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi I've just found a pigeon sitting beneath the feeder in the garden, he has some growth's on either side of the mouth which are pale in colour, he's very skinny. Can anyone confirm if this looks like canker please? I've given him one Spartrix tablet. I've just learnt that this could be Candida?

Not sure what happened to them, but probably assume the worst in an urban environment unfortunately. Anyway she (I presume it's a she based purely on her body shape and...

    My Dove (Mr. Popodopolis) has recently developed a growth on his left ear. I only noticed it a few days ago and it has grown in size slightly since then. The yellow discharge at its base is new and it has a dark spot on the end. Any ideas what might be the cause of this. He is eating and...

    Just noted a soft, pea-sized growth, light tan in color, directly under the bottom portion of the beak of one of my pigeons. My bird doesn't seem to be in pain and is healthy otherwise. The growth is soft to the touch and doesn't seem to bother my bird when it's touched. I took him to a...

    OK, don't know if I'm worrying too much, or I'm dealing with an issue: Back story is: Harmony (Capuchine) and Cadence (Oriental Frill) mated and had eggs. Cadence was a bit calcium deficient when I got her, and there was a 4 day window between the first and second eggs being laid. She had also...

    Hello, Although he seemed to be managing somewhat okay, one of the 'wild' pigeons we feed on our property seemed to be having some issues with coordinated flight so we caught him in the hutch to get a closer look. An inspection revealed a large growth on his neck just below his beak. We've had...

    I noticed yesterday that my bird has a growth in her left nostril. She is being treated for E.coli and coccidia right now... I found today that it seemed to be spreading to her eye... It doesn't look like canker and looked a little watery. Any idea what this could be? Maybe it could be some...

    Please help. I just noticed a speck of blood on the wall next to Ambrose's crate. I took him out and found a ruffled area of feathers with some dried blood. I ran a bowl of warm water as I was convinced it was a puncture wound from Friday's disaster ( will explain in a bit) . But once I bathed...

    Hello, I have a brand new hen fantail. She is so very sweet and I have had her for only a couple days. But I fear the breeder I purchased from may have given me a sick and/or injured hen. To start she has this strange growth on her chest, I plan to take her to the vet to see what it is, but no...
