  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi. I'm new here and after looking around the board for a while (miuch to the chagrin of my cat who is meowing incessantly for my attention), I have to say...Thank God for whomever created this forum! I only wish I knew it existed 4 years ago when I needed help desperately after I rescued a male...
  2. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi, I'm looking after a juvenile house martin, probably predator-caught, because he was rescued 3 days ago with a bleeding left wing and most of the primary feathers broken. He had a prominent keel, and that hasn't changed much. I'm out of my depth here, and would be very grateful for any...

    One of my YBs who is about 40 days old, His right wing very 1st flight that was still growing got yanked out. I just noticed that today when he would have a little hard time flying. I noticed that it would have blooded some time but now just blood stain and swelling. How can I treat it? Or If...

    My Pigeon is 3 days old now (Its name is Poncho) And I think that there is something wrong with its right wing. sometimes it is below the leg and it is the cause of Poncho's flipping. Does anyone know what might have happened? The cause was probably because I accidentally dropped him.:( By the...
  6. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    We got another female feral in yesterday. She has a droopy wing but she managed to fly from the floor up to shelf that's 12 feet high, so I'm not sure what's up. If it was broken, it's already begun healing. She's a good weight and has the most beautiful eyes! I am pretty sure she is a female...

    Yesterday, Maryjane sent me on a mission to pick up an injured feral pij. I got him today, he seems healthy and alert aside from a droopy wing. Very cute too! What I've found is: The right wing droops enough that the flight feathers touch the ground. I don't feel anything obviously...

    Hello, everyone, It's been a while since I've been on here, but I found an injured pigeon just about an hour or two ago. Apparently she'd been walking around our house for about two days. She's not able to fly, and from what I was able to observe had the feathers grazed from her wing. It...

    Hi everyone. It's been only a few months since I first posted about a baby we found. Now I have an adult pigeon that we rescued from a kid and his skateboard. :mad: I was able to walk right up to this pigeon and scoop him up. He didn't protest at all, so I'm a bit worried about that. His left...

    I took in a lost lahore pigeon today and his wings were clipped, very short and pretty roughly. I let my 3 birds out in the house every day, I caved...and I want him to fly so he can fully enjoy it. How long will it take, do I have to wait until a molt? If so, how long in between molts? Thank you!
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Greetings everyone! I noticed a group of magpies circling Bos parent’s nest this morning, I chased them off but then I noticed another baby dove on the ground just a few steps from where I found Bo. I looks grown up only that her beak is pink not black yet. I gave her some water n put some seeds...

    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...

    I just wanted to share the seven pijjies that came home with us from our rescue mission yesterday. Tipper, her husband & daughter drove up from Tucson (about a 2 hour drive) this morning to adopt a pigeon or two. They left with 4. *Wink* I first want to say what a pleasure it was to meet...

    One of the pigeons that come in my garden has been very ill yesterday and today I managed to grab her and take her inside. Since yesterday she started to walk funny and now when I inspected her wing there are some bones sticking out a bit or it could be some stuck together feathers, she is a bit...

    Thought it was time to show how Grunter is doing. I'm 99% sure she is a hen so am changing her name to Auntie Grunts as she is a senior pigeon. As you can see she is recovered from her terrible open wounds. Her skin has all grown back but she is missing many feathers from the injured wing and...

    I've accidentally found out that the hair dryer I use really helps the babies in learning how to fly. They catch even a drift of the air and flap all around. I was thinking it could also be helpful in cases of injured wings, if strength is needed back in the wing. All of the babies love it...

    Mieke (pet Old German Owl, mate of Bliss) started limping Saturday eveining. It's her right leg, so my guess is that her band may have gotten caught on something and she injured her leg getting loose. I checked for any obvious break, swelling, or heat - nothing. She just limps when she walks...
  20. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I am really lucky to have found this forum and I hope I will find some (very needed) help here. So, today I found a pigeon in one of the biggest streets here in Belgrade (yes, Belgrade, Serbia, that's where the pigeon and I live :) ). It was lying on the pavement with an injured wing. I...
