    I went out early this morning and realized my pigeon's foot was EXTREMELY large. The band was so tight around his leg that it was cutting into his skin. It took two of us and a pair of surgical scissors to get the band off. Underneath his foot/leg area was huge and puss was coming out. His door...

    Until I find a home for Dutch or we decide to keep him or her, i do have a lot of concern. She does seem to hold up the right foot a great deal, I don't feel or see any abnormality that would indicate a broken leg. I'm wondering if she managed to get the band off if it were a plastic or if...
