    HELP!!! One of my baby archangels had the back of his neck completely stripped. I finally put the two babies out in the aviary and one was attacked and didn't make it, but the other one is still alive. Unfortunately, the back of its neck is completely stripped, even a layer of skin! I rinsed it...

    Hello, a feral pigeon has been hanging around in my garden for the last week, at first we thought she was injured as she wasn't flying and her left wing looked misshapen. However we have seen her fly for the last couple of days but won't leave our side garden alleyway. Today she has started...

    Yesterday one of my male pigeons scalped one of his own fledglings, luckily I caught it before anymore damage was done. This is the first time I've dealt with this situation and I am still horrified. I removed him from the cage immediately. My question is, will the female still care for the...

    I found an injured pigeon outside and I put it in a box. It won't bite it isn't resisting getting taken that much. Won't eat won't drink. I assume it's been a day since it's been injured.

    This pigeon was attacked by a crow yesterday morning. Gave him water and millets. His leg seems to be in a very weird position. I don't know if it's broken. Is it going to heal itself? I can't take it to vet as I live in Delhi, India and covid situation in very bad here. What should I do?

    Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am an experienced (ex) parrot owner and although some things are the same as far as care goes other things are very different.

    My rescued pigeon is getting stronger every day. I transferred her from a cardboard box into a borrowed rabbit hutch. She is hopping on one leg and using her opposite wing to balance. Lots of missing feathers have grown back although there is still a large damaged area on her back which is...

    So I found a pigeon yesterday (I live in a big city in Europe). I am a very experienced (ex) parrot owner so some things are similar but I have zero experience with pigeons. I did a lot of research but need guidance. I'm not sure if she was in shock when I found her but she's eating well...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    There is a feral pigeon that I feed occasionally. For the last week he has had a swollen eye. It started off pretty bad (he was unable to open it) but seems to have got a bit better. There is still a big lump on his head and seems to have stopped going down. He shows no signs of pain or...

    Today I found a pigeon at work (Lakehurst NJ) who was too weak to fly and almost unresponsive. It looks like it has an eye infection as well. I contacted the secretary of the club on its band and they do not have a record of the owner of that bird. I am currently waiting on a response back but...
