  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Yesterday we found a pigeon on the road which had just been hit by a car. It had blood coming from its eye and beak and we took it home with us, expecting it to die within the hour.

    Hi, Our bird is old, I know, but he seems to be losing feathers along his head and towards his eye. He's getting a bit bald. Everything else seems ok. Any ideas? He's always been inside with us and he's the only one we have. I was thinking of getting the mite medicine, but does anyone else...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?

I gave it some water cause i assumed it was dehydrated but it...

    First off, I apologise for my many posts, but this is happening quickly, and rather strangely. I have a mated pair of diamond doves, and they've mated sveral times. Well, earlier I brought them to the vet, droppings looking like the normal round pellets that any diamond dove would have. But...

    Today, I have noticed that my three year old female pigeon (rescued as a squab) is doing a really strange thing with her head: every second or so, her head drops forward and then returns to the usual position. This is NOT the normal pigeon head bob. It's something I've never seen before. She...
