  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi everyone. I’ve had my pigeon, Pidgey, for about 3-4 weeks. I’m new to all of this and have never had a pet pigeon before. I’ve noticed that he seems to have a great appetite, lots of energy, and flys perfectly fine. But I’ve noticed while he was preening that his feathers close to his tail...

    Hi, me again... A couple of days before I set Butterfly free, I spotted this little guy, who’s got a pretty large lump on his face/lower jaw that doesn’t look like the usual pox I’ve seen birds with... I grabbed him to take a better look at it, & I’ve still got him inside, with ample seed &...

It's 4am Saturday, no vets are open, and there or no good bird vets near me within 150ish miles, I cant go to vet today(saturday) and most are closed Sunday. Does anyone know what this...

    On Sunday I took in an adult pigeon, the moment I picked her up she vomited clear liquid... got her home and examined her (see attachments). There's this large, sticking out yellow lump on her upper crop. It's very hard. I thought canker? Someone else suggested canker but also a rupture with...

    I have a roller pigeon with a lump at the base of the tail / behind the vent. The bird eats fine and seems to be doing fine but I would still like to know what it is. It is nearly the size of a marble and seems to cause the skin above it to be a yellowish color. It is also fairly solid. Has...

    I was recently given a feral baby pigeon that fell out of its nest. This morning, it started making congestion noises when it breathes. I can tell if it comes from the nose or throat. It looked like there might be food in the nostrils, but not very much. I also noticed a lump near the bottom of...

We first noticed a lump several months ago but it appeared to go away. About a week ago we noticed it again. Over the past few days it has grown substantially in...

    My pigeon has a small lump on his forehead, just above his beak? Does this area have a gland or something that means a lump there is normal?

    Hi, I've joined this forum to get some advice on a baby pigeon I have taken in. I found him 2 weeks ago in the middle of the road with a bashed up eye and several shallow cuts round his face. I think he was around 3 weeks old (which makes him about 5 weeks now) and had fallen out of his nest. I...
