    One of my hens is acting strangely. She is holding her wings down almost as if she is relaxed but now is suddenly very tame as if she is weak. I can get extremely close as if she rather not fly, and also seems to struggle in flight and sometimes misses her perch. I handled her, the inside of her...

    Hello. I found a pigeon in the park. Her tail feathers were completely plucked and she can't fly. I took her to the vet and the vet was optimistic that she was going to recover. How long does it take for the tail feathers to grow back? Is there anything I can do to make her more comfortable...

    Hello Everyone! It seems like ages since I've been on here. My babies are doing good, Winnie and Brodie finally started getting along (it only took them months, lol) and are constantly trying to hatch little ones (I almost feel guilty for not letting them, I just can't afford to have any more...

    I found a baby dove or pigeon today - I'm not sure how old it is - it can get itself airborne, and flap or glide for about 6-10 feet. It's tail feathers are JUST starting to come in, and it's still got some pinfeathers. If I'd seen it in a garden I'd have just left it, but leaving it on a...

    Anyway, I am curious to go over this...sounds promising, but I can find nothing about it on 'google' searches. Did find this - "Since its development in the 1960s, oral rehydration solution has been credited with saving the lives of millions of children throughout the world who suffer from...

    When I was outside today I found a pigeon near the side of the road. It was lying on the side of it's head which I found quite odd and was alone so I brought it home since I thought it might be hurt or something.

    Hoping to find a little advice on a sick dove :( We tend to have several come into the garden (we put corn out to feed them) and a few days ago noticed one that seemed a little fluffed up. Past experience has taught us that trying to catch the sick ones can be difficult and the stress fatal...

    Aias was on his way to the store today when he saw a pigeon not moving at all on the sidewalk next to some garbage bags. So he scooped him up and brought him home. When the pij first got here, he was unbalanced, tipping over, very weak-appearing, apparently dehydated. And squeaking! Aias put him...

    A staff member picked up boxes of used books and brought them to my place of work last Tuesday for sorting. Yesterday we discovered that one of the boxes contained a live white pigeon. The box was just big enough for the bird and had a small mesh window on the side. The bird was covered in...
