    Hi everyone, My plans to capture a healthy feral pigeon and attempt to turn it into an in house bird has possibly changed. For one, the pigeon I had decided to take has not been at the daily feedings for five days. It is possible that it is OK, such as sitting on eggs, or it is possible...

    I'm starting this thread for Landy ([email protected]). She contacted me this morning by PM regarding her 10 day old baby who's having some problems. I don't have the experience she needs and am hoping someone who does can respond. All I could think of to recommend is supplemental heat and probiotics...

    When I was outside today I found a pigeon near the side of the road.

    Isit normal for the pigeons to throw up after drinking the ACV water? I gave my pigeon some after he ate seeds and he threw up the seeds he just ate? Or did he throw them up because he didn't like the taste? One dilema after another in this house right now. Cindy

    This morning two pidgeons became victims of a power surge. One was killed and the other was sitting next to him with a hurt wing and a hurt "knee" I suspect. The kids found them and I brought the hurt bird into the house. It takes NO time for the fire ants to devour something that cannot move...
