    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...

    Oscar last night started doing some star-gazing type moves, but we thought it was because Pinky had landed on top of his cage, and he was trying to see her. But he was doing it repeatedly. So I took him out to sit with me and he did stop doing it. But Aias says he's been doing it more today...

    Hi Everyone, I would really appreciate advice on a matter. I have had a pidgey with PMV for over a year, the worst of it was last winter now she only gets nervous fits once in awhile. Her health has been good (other than her having balance issues) until recently. I have been noticing her...

    About a week+ ago someone brought me two sick birds they found on their doorstep. Fantails, one white and one brown. They both where literally starving. No breast muscle, and had/still have severe respiratory infection. They where gurgly at times-now still very sick, open mouthed breathing...

    I was talking to a friend in the Long Beach area last night who rescues pigeons. Apparently there is a terrible outbreak of avian pox in the feral flocks near the Promenade. He mentioned a product called Pox Dry that he and his vet swear by for drying out pox lesions. It's available from...

    Happy Easter, everyone! I've been real busy and haven't been on here in weeks. My little American Fantail hen has what appeared to be a hardened, dried dropping stuck to the bottom of her foot. I thought I could just soak her foot and remove it, but when I examined her, it appears there's a...

    So I get a phone call from my Fiancé and he's telling me his co worker found a wild Pigeon that can't seem to fly. It was just standing there trying to get out of peoples way, but not flying at all. It's rather small I noticed. So I drive down with cage in car and pick it up and bring it home...

    End suffering. Humane way of putting down? Yesterday I caught a pigeon in my yard that was unable to stand appearing drunk (which I know can be a symptom of west nile..but at this time of year I strongly doubt). Although I do not think it is New Castle..I could be wrong...could be poisoning...

    Since pigeons are relatively new patients here, I've never had to deal with pox before. The pij has the dipthiritic version, complete with a bad case of conjunctivitus. I'm managing to get liquid food down his throat, and the sores in there don't seem to be getting any worse.But now the eyes...

    Hi, Those engaged in feral pigeon rescue in London have noticed a phenomenon we have not seen before - yellow crusty lumps covering both eyes. The lumps look like sweetcorn kernels (hope that hasn't put you off sweetcorn!) which get bigger and bigger before covering the entire eyes, obviously...

    All I'm completely lost here and I think time is of the essence. Some friends just found a very fancy pigeon and brought it to me since I have Charlie (shot roller I found). It looked fine, just stressed, and I was just going to find it's owners. BUT, when I fed it some pigeon...
