  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I'm in the Sherman Oaks California. My neighbor found a pigeon in her front yard which can't fly. She put it into a large cat carrier and called me (I'm the animal person on the street). I know nothing about birds. The only bird I tried to save died at the vet, so I don't feel good about that...

    :( The title pretty much says it all, I went out at 12:00 to clean the loft and check on him. His parents didn't sit on him last night, maybe because he is too big now... but was cold so I brought him inside and in that time he hasn't pooped once, his crop hasn't emptied either... :( :confused:

    My pigeon, Muffin, hasn't been acting quite that well for a little while now. She always looks terrible if she doesn't have water even for a few minutes. While "Master Toady", her mate, always acts and looks energetic. When she's thirsty, even a little bit, she gets squinty eyes and sits on...

    Hi Guys, Sorry I've been gone, too much going on here. We got in a white pigeon last night from a vet, but something is wrong with it. First its young. Not sure how young, but young. Full grown, but still has that bump thing on its beak (sorry for the seriously technical term). His poops are...

    I wrote in a couple of weeks ago about a baby pigeon I was raising who had a swollen crop. I got lots of great advice, thank you everyone. My vet sent me Itraconozole for what I suspected was yeast. It was, and he is now yeast free. Had to take him to the vet a few days later though as his crop...

  19. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I just took in another pigeon. She or he can barely fly. I think I have seen him many times before come to my terrace to eat. He is definitely not a young pigeon. The only thing I can find wrong by examining his body is that his breast bone is very sharp and there is a surface wound that looks...
