The wound is starting just above its eyes, goes over the top of the head, and continues to halfway down the back of the neck. The width is...

    I was trying to pair up a new male pigeon with one of my females. It all seemed to be going OK. I put her in the males breeding cage and after a bit of pecking they settled down. I checked them throughout the day and they were fine. They are king pigeons. During the night the female attacked...

    I'm so mad, one of my 3 week old babies jumped from the nest and the others scalped it clear to the skull. I brought him in the house for the night and got him to eat some handfeeding formula. I know which one did the scalping because he had blood all over his face, He's lucky I didn't break...

    This poor Dove couldn't fly, and was pecked by pigeons. Luckily I found him just in the nick of time. Here is a picture of the poor thing. The other picture is the same Dove, one week later. He is doing fine, thankfully. I am posting this so next time someone asks if Pigeons and Doves can be in...

    Little Chickie is a young mini bantam chicken rescued from my feed store. She is eating and pooping good. The attached pic is after the wounds have been healing for a few days. I applied nothing as the exposed tissue is so close to the brain. Please have a look and advise.

    Hello everyone. I recently lost a baby fantail that had been scalped. I brought him, I was feeding him, and he was eating good, but my incubator was in storage and the only source of heat I had was a heating pad that went off automatically in two hours. Well I couldn't be home all day to make...
