rehydrating solution

  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Ok, right, I'm new here... So I live in France and I'm pretty sure no one will help me take care of this little chap, so it's going to have to be all me I'm afraid. I found him at the side of the road, wings tucked in, as far as I can see no blood. He had his eyes closed but opened them when...

    Now with my gastroenteritis and all, my doctor told me to drink Gatorade or a similar product. And I thought "well, if I can make rehydrating solution for pigeons, why not for me?" What an AWESOME idea I had. ... You can't guess how HORRIBLE that thing tastes. Seriously, I can't blame pigeons...

    Hi. I've been lucky enough to have a lovely pigeon visit my garden for the past two years. I feed it, talk to it, and it sits on my garden table and lets me stroke it. He has a blue ring on his leg, and is from the Irish Homing Union. Via another site, someone has been in touch with the...

  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I think it's a dove, but I'm not quite sure. Our neighbour found it in his back garden I think. Either way, he asked my mum if we would be able to look after it. So we now have a dove (?) on a towel on a heating pad. He found it a little into the evening, around 4-5ish, when it's starting to...

    Hi. Can someone help me out. One block from my apartment i saw a pigeon standing out in the middle of the street. Cars were dodging it, and it finally slowly walked away. It attempted to fly, flapped its wings but only got about 5 inches off the ground, traveled perhaps 4 feet, was airborne...

    Hi, Yesterday while walking my dogs my brother saw a pigeon being attaked by a cat in a school field. We managed to shoo the cat off(with help from the dogs) and I managed to climb a fence to get to him. He flew a short distance off the ground(about 20cm high) but appears to have lost all his...

    Aias was on the roof with the cats about an hour ago, when he noticed that they noticed something. There was a pigeon flopping around (once he saw the cats) in the pitch dark, trying to fly away, but totally unable to. Aias brought the pigeon in, and right away, I noticed the pigeon's posture...

    My daughter found a pigeon flopping around on the street several hours ago in Bilbao Spain. We are from the US and do not know if there is a place to take sick and injured birds here like we have in Florida and have no idea how to even begin to find something like this out here. We gently...

    I found a pigeon underneath my balcony. It looks like he's fallen and can't fly back, because he's sick. His eyelid seems to be very swollen. Is this what catarrh looks like? He can stand up just fine, but flying is another issue. When I was trying to catch him, he got the ground with a lot...

    Surprisingly enough, I've found another baby cuculi. Actually passed a woman in the street carrying it - but she gladly handed it over to me when I started trying to explain what she needed to do. This one seems a bit older than the last, has most of its feathers in. Unfortunately, i can't...
