    Hi, not sure if you can help... A friend and I have found what appears to be a very young possibly fledgling pigeon. It appears to be healthy and squeaking a lot. The wings do not appear to be broken and the keel is not too prominent. However, it will only flutter and not fly at all. It appears...

    I haven't posted here in a while! Hi everyone! I have still been keepin' birds! Made some major loft upgrades and everything is in good order- except this: One of my young birds died today, he was quite young (just about fully feathered under the wings) and quite underweight. His brother was...

    Yesterday I spotted a young pigeon in my garden. I left some water out and saw that it’s parent was regularly walking alongside it so let them crack on.

    Hi all! I've had my pigeon pair for almost a year now and as they are my first birds (and first pets that are fully my responsibility) I'm sad to say I do keep finding new things health wise that I didn't realise needed doing. I just wanted to check if I'm missing any major stuff here that I...

    Hello! I have a pet ex racing pigeon with what I assume are some neurological issues, that I cannot find anything about online. He is a rescue racing pigeon we found outside. I’m not sure his gender but I will be referring to him as male because it’s easier for me. We’ve had him for about a year...

    So I am fully aware that her wings were trimmed, and incorrectly at that, i want her feather to grow out and not have them be trimmed again. However the way she holds it always looks odd, I do think shes plucked a few feather and that may be causing the problem?

    I was last minute given a baby pigeon to take care of found by my family alone on the floor. Looks to be about 12 days old but could be completely wrong. Read a lot on here and has been kept warm and in a quiet place to relax. It doesn’t seem to want to eat or drink anything and isn’t making any...

    I live in Las Vegas, an hour ago we found a pigeon in our yard that seemed injured. It managed to get under our car and left 2 droppings (how we found it). It was laying nearly on its side, and when I approached it was pushing itself away with one leg and its beak scraping the ground to move. I...

    Hello all!! I've been fascinated with the idea of keeping a bird as a pet since 2011, and for the longest time, I was considering getting a parrot as a companion. But then I discovered that, to my surprise, pigeons could be kept as pets!! Since 2017 I've been reading up on pigeon care...
