    Hi, saw a pigeon today being attacked by a bird of pray , I pulled over and the prey bird flew off and left him ..... I've got him now in a shoe box filled with tissue and a little bit of water. He has feathers missing under his chin and on his chest and what I think is his elbow equivalent...

    Hi -- I just rescued a pigeon that a dog had attacked (and was chewing on when I got to it); it's had a leg bitten off, lots of feathers lost, and a big chunk chewed out around the neck, which doesn't appear to be broken. I've kept the bird warm and disinfected the wounds with antiseptic, and...

  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, Today I was driving down the road and I saw a grounded pigeon who looked in distress. I tried for a good half hour to rescue him, but he managed to disappear out of my site. His leg was certainly broken as it was sharply bent. His wings seemed to be ok, because he managed to fly away...

    Blow Gun shootings of feral Pigeons in Seattle Warning, this will outrage you: Seattle Times article I haven't seen one of the injured pigeons. Is there a way we could have a fund drive and offer a higher reward? We could set up an online chipin?

    Hi all, One of my rehab pigeons (who is almost ready for release) has a foot that's bleeding. To give a bit of background, she has an old string injury that left one of her feet missing one toe and the hallux (she was this way when I met her). Where the hallux was, there is a kind of calloused...

    I might need help of a santury or rehab place for baby pigeons soon. (feral ones) It would need to be in or close to London, and accessible by public transport too hopefully. Does anyone know of anywhere that could help? I am not sure at this stage if it will be needed but i need to know now...

    Ok, got this one a few days ago, seemed to only have canker, pretty bad, but was hoping flagyl and baytril would do the trick. He seemed to be able to eat, sometimes too much seed would get caught up in mouth and i had to clear it out for him to eat again. The canker is in mouth, the left side...

    Treesa asked me to write up a little something about getting lost birds back home. I actually found the time just now. What I came up with is below. Thought I'd post it here for some of you other people to read and if there's anything that needs to be added, let me know and when WE'RE through...

  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I recently came across a pigeon that was in an altercation with some ravens. They were ganging up on her and pulling out her wing feathers. I am a soft hearted person, and I couldn't stand to see them taking away her ability to fly and basically her only natural defense, so I threw my coat over...

    Hello. I'm new to this list. My normal passion is rodents - I run a very well-known rat-care website - but I've also taken on several feral pigeons over the years. I used to have a small shop in Edinburgh, and it seemed as if there was some sort of "tramp sign" scrawled on our door, because...

    Hey guys, I posted a thread in the sick and injured pigeons discussion called "17 day old baby feral dove", and got heaps of helpful info on how to look after my little pigeon. She is now a bit over 5 weeks, and i've decided to keep her. I am going to try to buy this aviary for her, or if not...

    As you know, for a while I've been wondering what could possibly be wrong with my Moody goose. At first, people suspected she was slow to grow, and therefore she was smelly and low weight. Then, it came to genes... Could she have been, instead of an embden, a roman/embden cross? And perhaps...

    A lot of you guys mention letting your birds just have free roam (if not all the time at least for spurts). Do you just not care about poops? This is a real question, not trying to put anyone down. I am a clean FREAK. Like it's really bad, I am obsessive compulsively clean. Do you just deal with...

    Yesterday we had 2 separate Hawk attacks. We were able to get a hold of the situation and rescue the 2 injured pigeons. We have a friendly flock of feral pigeons that live at our place in the high desert in So. Calif. Mom provides food and shelter for them. She also helps with the recovery of...
  18. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    If anyone lives in the Twin Cities, MN area that has free pigeons please let me know. I will raise any kind of pigeon as long as it can walk and feed on it's own (unless it's too young then I will hand feed it). I have taken care of many injured pigeons and have been able to find them new caring...

    Hi, I posted last night on Opus' former thread that a pigeon had been visiting the window next to Opus' former window. (I thought it was one of his parents just checking in on him) Well, he returned. He's a very hurt bird. He has an incredible gash in his neck and when he eats the food I was...
