  1. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi all, I noticed over the last week or so that a non-releasable magpie I rescued (whose wing was so badly damaged it had to be amputated), Margo, was acting a bit lethargic, and she was starting to eat and drink less. I thought she might be depressed and started to introduce her to my other...

    I hope this is not an emergency, so that's why I'm writing in the "General Discussions" section. I have a 5 month old pet male pigeon that seems to be fine, except in the last couple of days I noticed that from time to time he is breathing with an open beak. For example when he flies a little...

    I have had my birds for almost two years without any disease problems. I do not fly my flock or add new birds without long quarantine. So what are the most common diseases they can get from their environment (not from other infected birds) and what are the first symptoms I should watch for?

    Hi all, Just got a roughly 20 day old 'peeper' in...a very nice woman who found him had him for four days with no food or water. She had tried very sweetly to get him to eat and drink, and even made special things for him to eat, but did not know how to do this with Pigeons...so... He was...

    This weekend, Unie stopped eating and only pooped out little strings of bile. She threw up a bunch of seeds late Sunday and I did a bunch of checks. I found what I think was one lone Trichomonad and so started her on Metronidazole. Later, I fed her a little bit of thin formula to get...
