I put her in a box and brought her home, She doesn't seem to be injured, but she has a bad rash on her back and is throwing up a lot. Any suggestions on what is wrong with...

    Hello to all the pigeon fanciers! I am very happy to have found this BB. Yesterday at my local Lowe's, I found a young pigeon in their greenhouse that was totally covered in oil to the extent that some of his feathers were completely clumped together. I was told that someone who worked there...

    Hi all Ok - I was desperate before now I'm super desperate!! Little Danny has now decided that he's not very interested in his formula anymore and only has a little suck at his syringe BUT he's still not pecking by himself. He's now in a bigger cage where I can sprinkle seed around on the...

    I've seen the couple of pigeons who visit my belcony mate, but the problem is that they mated in December! I was just wondering if this is a problem. Where I live we are having much higher then normal temperature, could this have made them think that it was spring?

    I found a pigeon yesterday, and I'm pretty sure it's blind. It doesn't eat anything, all it does is drink water. I'm hand feeding her, but I don't know how much to feed her. She doesn't look very happy, and it doesn't do anything but stare off into space. I feel very bad for it, is there...

    Hi all Danny still cannot learn to peck food on his own. He's grown into what I would say around the size of a budgie now and is absolutely frantic for his food when I get home from work. He beats his wings frantically until he is able to shove his beak up into the feeding tube and slurp up...

    Hi all and thanks once again for all your help. Danny is now about 25/26 days old and I just can't get him interested in pecking. He runs around after my hand looking for the little tube I use to feed him. He gets quite frantic if it's not there!! I've tried to simulate a pecking motion using...

    Hi! Its nice to "see" you all again! My husband and I have to leave our Pij at home alone for hours at a time and we were wondering if it would be a good idea to get him a caged bird to hang out with. If so what kind would you suggest. I can't get another pigeon because we would not be able to...

    Hi everyone, I would like to get some opinions here on my situation with a feral pigeon I'm caring for. It will be a month this coming Monday since I found him. He was in sad shape. Could not fly, or even stand up. He fell over on his side and couldn't right himself. His neck was injured and...

    I want to thank you for your help so far and update you on our young pigeon. We call it Ellington, or Ell for short. Could be Ellie if its female. I got her pigeon feed and pigeon grit [which I keep in a separate bowl.] So far I haven't seen any interest in the grit but maybe when I'm not around...

    We found a pure white pigeon today. The pigeon has a band with a name and telephone number. We contacted the person who owned the bird and we were told he sold thirty birds recently and he cannot tell us where the bird belongs. He told us we could keep the bird if we wanted to and that it...

    Hey, glad I found you! I manage a small gift shop and last night a ferral juvinile pigeon fell out of our air duct! He has a nasty injury on the side of his head that is sealed, dry and seems to be healing nicely. The grey-yellow scab is kind of extended and sealed over his eye. Otherwise he is...

    Greetings, The little guys are not so little now and are flying from my arm to the food box. First flight outside for the bigger one, Silent Bob, who made it to the next roof and then right back. Got some grit, to go along with the wild bird seed, but still don't quite understand what this...

    He is chubby so able to get at food. But he does not appear able to fly, and he sort of waddles about. I got pretty close to him today- but not near enought to see his foot. A guy that saw me investigating him said that he saw the bird waddling on Friday. Maybe it is an old injury...
