    Hi! I really need some help and advice. Yesterday I found this pigeon in a park, he wasn't flying away from the kids that were screaming and running around him, but he did seem scared and he was desperately trying to run from them.

    I have a pet pigeon Petey and he was outside yesterday and there was an accident and his foot got shut in the car door (he landed on the door at the last second trying to greet my mom). He is mostly standing on his good leg but still tries to fly around and be his normal self. He is eating and...

    My Pigeon Petey is holding his leg up and not putting much weight on it unless he has to. My dad said he got his foot caught in the door. I am not sure if anything is broken or he is just hurt. His leg doesn't appear to be very swollen at all. I am just worried that he is holding it up and...

    I found my eight year old Ring Neck dove on the bottom of his cage this past Friday. He could not stand normally and kept tipping over to his left side. He is having a problem standing on his left foot. His movements seem a little impaired, as well. His flapping seems slow when on his left...

    Hi I rescued a pigeon from out my back lane because kids where throwing stones at it and it did not seem to be flying away. When i approached it i soon noticed it was not able to stand on one leg. It does not seem particularly happy to be held but i managed to get the number from the ring. I...

    Hi everyone, my neighbour's son found an injured baby in the street earlier and brought it around to me. I have put him on a warm hot water bottle and he is sitting in a U shaped towel. I'm not sure how old he is but he has an injured leg and can't put any weight on it. He seems perky enough and...
