    Hi, I found a pigeon on our balcony. I don't think he is well, and am uncertain as to what to do. I think he is very young, as he still has a fair amount of yellow down sticking out between his gray feathers. I can't see anything visibly wrong with him, but he appears very sluggish and weak...

    Hello, glad I found this site. I have a baby pigeon (eyes open, feathers growing in, about 4 inches long). Friend called me today saying he had it and brought it to me (I tend to rescue wild animals, and be a medium until I find a experienced rehabilitator). Either way, I need to find a rescue...

    I am looking after my grandfathers pigeons while he is away and i have noticed that one of the babies (about 20 days) has got a really swollen leg- too swollen even to determine whether it is broken or not. He moved out of the nest and was on a flat ground for a few days-could it be splay legs...

    one of my birds has been passing this odd looking poo for the past couple of days. I can best describe it as looking like the white urate portion is distributed over the surface of the rest of the dropping, rather than in a blob at the end. Inside the white coating, the dropping color/texture...

    We were out looking for our lost diapered pigeon Biko today when Aias saw a pigeon with some thread around his feet. He caught it with some effort, we brought it home and took the thread off. It wasn't cutting into the toes, no broken skin or swelling, so the thread hadn't been there that long...

    Hi All, Got another New Jersey bird that will probably need to be picked up in the next day or so. If anyone is near enough and willing and able, please let me know. The bird is a flying flight that is extremely underweight. There is a small chance the finder will want to keep the bird, but...
