    I saw a pigeon in Leeds city centre it was sat on the ground, in between a car and the pavement and was sat asleep (6:30pm). It seemed an odd place to be asleep, so I went over and it didn’t move (unusual for a city pigeon). I moved my hand towards it and it came over to me, and snuggled into my...

    5 days ago my mother in laws cat went outside, and came back inside with a young mourning dove. I'm not sure the exact age, but it's not large enough or feathered enough to be a fledgling. The wings are feathered but beneath them baby still has down, and has many pin feathers on its neck and...

    Question everybody, got a 2 month old bird who's been acting sick the last few days. Always by itself and sort of puffed up with its tail down. Yesterday when I fed them she ate a bit and then threw it up and then ate a little more and drank some water. Any ideas what this is off hand? None...

    This isn't my pigeon but a racing pigeon that got lost and landed in our garden back in the summer. We contacted the owners and did what they said, and tried to release him but he always kept flying back to us. We feed him mainly cracked chicken corn because we have chickens, but also bird seed...

    Hello! We found a pigeon outside today. We took it in and put it in an open box.

I...

    A few months ago I built a coop and decided to start up again with rollers. Started out with a couple of pair that looked healthy but bought a few more from the auction and everything seemed fine for a while but now a few of my birds look like they may be getting sick. One of my pair look like...

    i've been treating my dove with baytril for 10 days now (duration of treatment is 2 weeks) and an antifungal for yeast and after a few days where she was perky, more energetic and the tail bobbing and lethargy dissapeared completely she seems to be back to the beggining with the same symptoms...

    Hello, My pigeon Philly has been sitting / lying down a lot lately (in the position pigeons commonly sit down when they're sleeping or nesting). I've had him for about three years (he was found with a broken wing that rendered him non-releasable) and he lives with me in our strictly indoor...

    Hi all, I am writing this with deep sadness, as I have lost my wonderful Tumbler hen, " Sweetie Pie" to sudden illness. Maybe some of you have ideas as to pinpoint what happened to her. I am not sure of her age. I got her in 2008 as a mate to "Dovey". She was always hardy, never sick and...

    I have cared for an abandoned pigeon before, so when I found this baby I was happy that it was me that found him. I live in Toronto and know most people wouldn't think twice about leaving him. I took him home and attempted to recreate what I did with my last baby pigeon encounter, but with less...

    So we've got now 28 birds in our loft. The most recent additions have been there for almost 2 weeks now. Last night one of our hens was acting really lethargic and sat around all puffed up. She let me walk right up to her and pet her before taking off, which is really unusual for these birds. My...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    So one of the kids nearly tripped over Mr. Pidge on the way home from school yesterday. The pidgeon was so docile that he just picked him up with no struggle. He brought him home because the pigeon was obviously not flying - and he (I'm assuming a he) hasn't tried since. We have him in the...

    I have a 13 year old ring-neck dove. Lately she has been acting strange. She sits a lot more than she ever has before and she is not as active as usual. She has a clear bubble on her underside near her bottom, it is as big as an egg but it is soft...:confused: I am wondering if it might be an...
