    Hi, a little over a month ago I found a banded dove from a funeral release place that didn't want her back. She seemed fine but n after sneezing once and awhile for a few days she now wheezes quiet a bit. I started giving her the BIRDrx formula, putting it on her perches bc I can't pick her up...

I have basic information like keeping them in a dark warm place and identifying injuries and such, but not much more. we are in the middle of a snow storm and a pigeon flew into our window. I have him safe in...

    Hello everyone, I´m glad i found this space and hope you can help me. About a week ago, I found a beautiful yet weak pigeon I call Skittles shivering on my way back home so I picked him up and carried him with me. I took him to the vet and apparently he has some parasites and got treatment for...

    Hi everyone, A few days ago a kind lady found a fledgling pigeon. He was limping and wouldn't fly. A few days passed and the pigeon suddenly could not stand or walk. I have taken him into care. He is on amoxyclav and meloxicam. I have done some research and I am wondering if it is possible that...

    I know pigeons should be in pairs to be happy but I don't want babies and I wanna know if two males or females will get along fine without any problems. If I get two females what do I do with the eggs? Will they lose trust if I take their eggs?

    A pigeon collided with my house window in the morning. It was gasping,not moving at all, so i brought it in the house, kept it in a clean warm box for 2 hours. Now it's moving well but isnt flying .I think i'll need to care for it for a longer period, but i have no prior experience with pigeons...

    Hi, so I have a white winged dove who has never been weaned it’s my fault cause I thought he would start eating by itself when the time came but now he’s spoiled and won’t eat by himself. I’ve tried so many methods like trying to starve him a bit so he gets the instinct to eat but I always cave...

    I have a few pigeons. They were all nice and healthy. But recently this winter I noticed one pigeon is not eating and standing still. He was not active at all. I dont have enough knowledge about pigeon diseases but I tried my best. He had sounds of breathing in his nose. As his time was ending...

    Pretty self explanatory. I have a lovely OGO that I adopted a few months ago. She's very sweet and is starting to warm up to me but still will not tolerate human hands in her personal space. Problem is, I need to trim her nails as they are getting long. I got a brick perch to help abrade them...

    Last night I went to take the trash out and there was a pigeon in my driveway. He was just sitting completely still and blinking, he wouldn't even turn his head. I could get extremely close to him but didn't touch him so as to not scare him. After a while he began to walk around and crane his...

    Hey guys. I'm planning to adopt 3 little fledglings later this month, and I want to know what kind of cage I should use. Its going to be indoors, and I'm leaning towards a ferret cage for sizing and shelves. What dimensions should the cage have for 3 pigeons? Thanks.

    I have been fostering a pigeon with paralyzed legs. It is my first time fostering a bird hence i'm completely clueless. The vet says that he might have touched a power line and the current cut off blood circulation to the legs. He has suggested to give drops of omnacortil and massage with an...

    Ok so I raised willow from an egg. I did everything while raising her. It was literally all me. I thought for sure we’d have a strong connection and I was excited for it. She’s 4 months old now and she literally has hated everyone for the last few months because of pigpen puberty. Now she’s in...

    Hi guys so I’m gonna try to make this as short as possible. So I raised my girl from egg. She was hand fed for over 7 weeks and we were bonded. She loved her head pats and she loved getting attention in general. Once she turned about 2.5-3 months old, she just started not liking me. She’s 4...

Just moves around that area. I'm not a bird expert, so idk what to do about it. I can't grab it anymore because it runs away...

    Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am an experienced (ex) parrot owner and although some things are the same as far as care goes other things are very different. So, I need help. I recently rescued a Rock Dove a block away from our flat. On Sunday we took her to the...

    Hello! Today I took in a pigeon from a vet clinic that was due to be euthanised today because they couldn't find a carer, so I stepped in and brought her home. She's very underweight, and I suspect she has some kind of fracture to her wing as she holds it up and a little bit out, it looks quite...
