    Hi - Saturday evening (Oct 10th) we found an injured pigeon near our place. Neck wrenched backwards. Didn't seem to have use of legs very well. Pupils evenly dilating though. Put him(?) in a box with pigeon seed and water on our covered condo roof but the motion was limited. In Bangkok here...

I put a basket in for her with a towel in it, which she used for the first week, but now completely avoids...

    I received a call from an Avian Vet hospital where I do some volunteer work. She asked me to take on the home care of a young pigeon that has just started to eat seed on it's own. She mentioned that it has a splayed leg and the long-term plan is I give it home care for a couple more weeks...

    Hi all, wanna share my experience regarding one of my pigeons which he got back home after three days with a broken knee, (just my personal experience which might not work for other kind of injuries as you all know it) Early in the morning he was sitting on the loft and I was happy he came back...

    My poor little squab somehow broke his leg in the nest and I didn't catch it until it was too late. It healed itself in a horrible awkward splay angle and it breaks my heart to see him struggle so much. He's at the growing stage where his flight feathers are starting to come in so he's...

    Hi Guys, I found to Pigeons a few weeks ago. I have been so busy that I could not post anything here. I also found 2 baby sparrows, but I managed to put them back in their nest with the help of someone. Sadly on the next day when I came back around I did not see them where they usually were...

    This is not my first time raising a pigeon or even my first time rehabbing one, but this is the most serious case I've had to work with. On Mother's Day, May 11 2014, I rescued a 2 month old homing pigeon with severe injuries. Her name is Hope. She came from my grandfather's loft, pigeon...

  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Another forum suggested I cross-post this here. I have already tried one vet (knew it was a long shot, they wouldn't see it and said the local refuge wouldn't treat 'pest' birds) and have messages out to the nearest wildlife center that MickaCoo recommended as possibly taking pigeons. Just...

    This evening I went to feed my pigeons king pigeons and noticed one is not using its leg, its tucked up into the body. It seem painful for the bird to walk on that foot. It also can not use the foot to grip the perches. The foot is clean and not swollen or cut. But the ends of each toe are...

    I posted previously on whether to euthanize this pigeon I found a week and half ago. Thought it was just broken wing. I took him to vet and it was more damaged than I thought and there was a bone sticking out. Vet says we need to amputate ($1000.00) Arg!!! I do not have the money so I opted for...
  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Dear Pigeon-Talk, Where is the best place to buy bands for Ringneck Doves and which do you recommend? I was thinking about purchasing some from doveline.com, since I am member of the A.D.A., but I am just curious as to what you guys think.

    The pigeon below my friend rescued 6 miles from my house in a desert area. She or he has a broken foot, and all of his or her tail feathers missing. Also has a green band . What gender is this bird and what type of roller is she or he? Its very tame.
