    Hi guys. My pigeon is now 13 days old and he’s doing good. I just have a question, he will sometimes stretch his neck up and open his mouth then go back to normal. This usually happens after/during feeding. It’s not a constant thing it just happens sometimes and I really don’t know what it could...
  2. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    The other day I had a homing pigeon that flew out and did not return until 2 days later. Today I noticed that this pigeon has a bloated crop, as if it was a pouter pigeon. I observed it and it seems to lack energy (didn't fly when I let it out, just perched around the loft). Any ideas what...

    Hello I am new here, I recently rescued a drowning pigeon a few weeks back and as of a couple days ago, he has flown into the ceiling fan. His neck is contorted, and while his eating and drinking are completely normal and he seems fine, I doubt his neck if very comfortable, and I think it is...

    Hello. Has anyone else noticed things changing in the sky when you look sideways looking up? I mean when standing and looking up with the neck bent to one side a little. I do not know if it is the pain in my neck causing these strange images or they are always there but invisible with regular...

    Hello guys! I'm new in this forum - I found you while trying to find more information about paraximovirus a couple months ago, when my pet pigeon first fell ill. I'll start by saying that I'm not even sure if it was PMV that my bird caught. I live in a city with no avian specialists, most vets...

    Hello, Although he seemed to be managing somewhat okay, one of the 'wild' pigeons we feed on our property seemed to be having some issues with coordinated flight so we caught him in the hutch to get a closer look. An inspection revealed a large growth on his neck just below his beak. We've had...

    Just caught a neighbour's cat dragging a pigeon across our deck. Stopped the attack and tried to determine the injury specifics, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Definetely tore a significant amount of feathers from the flesh from middle of neck to shoulder (where wing meets the body)...

    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...

    Hey guys, I'm worried about one of the breeding cocks that was given to me, something looks weird on his neck. His neck never looked that way before until I noticed today. Is he sick? If so what does he have and what treatments would work?

    Hi all - I need a little help/advice. I just witnessed a black bird (might have been a cow bird) attack and peck the heck out of the little guy pictured below. When I picked him up he was still breathing but the toes didn't grip my finger. Eyes are half mast. He didn't seem to be able to...
