    Hi, I rescued 2 white homing pigeons, we had rescued one before a year ago but he died. Their beaks are very different from my other pigeons it is almost like the beak descends from between their eyes. Long story short, one of them is making a gurgling sound, just like the one I had a year ago...

    Hi all -- I ended up with a new rescue today -- though I have my doubts whether this one will make it, at least I am going to give it a try. I found a little checker (hen, I think, and she appears pretty young) lying on her back at the subway station, beak breathing and unable to turn over...

    I have a young pigeon that is holding his tail down and breathing heavily. His abdomen is swollen, I'm thinking the swelling may be swollen air sacs. But I also wonder if other internal swelling could be pressing on the lungs and affecting his breathing, He does not seem to be pooping much but I...

    I've been fostering a feral pigeon that had a pecking wound on its head and missing wing feathers. It need stitches on the head, but made good progress in 3 weeks, to the point where it was flying around my bathroom and its head had completely healed and feathered over. I thought it'd be ready...

    OK, we have many many long time keepers of pigeons here, so what is the most common serious medical problem our pigeons seem to get? The one thing that comes to mind for me is the common coccidiosis, since they have it to some degree or another! Never had any problems with any of the MAJOR...

    I need advice, one of my pigeons is making a noise when he breathes. It sounds like he has a cold with flem in his throat. Is this something serious? Does anyone know what this could possibly be? Any advise or suggestions on a possible cause and how to treat this would be helpful. Thanks Again.

    My little green parakeet Angus is feeling under the weather and is going to the vet tommorow. I noticed yesterday that he was fluffed up and sleepy. Not his usual cheery self.
