  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a dove in the road today. I'm guessing it was hit by a car. One wing seems broken (it keeps it stuck straight out) and I'm afraid at least one of his legs is broken as well as it is unable to stand. I found it close to 6 and as today is Sunday I was unable to find an avian vet that was...

    Hello, I recently rescued two ringneck doves. They're the first birds I've owned so I'm worried I did something wrong to lead to this. I believe the sick dove (Gorou) was born in 2009, but honestly I don't know how to read bird bands so I might have misread. He was fine yesterday, walking and...

    Hello; I have a dove who has lost feathers on his back and now has an open sore which won't heal. He keeps picking at it and keeps it open too. I tried to attach photos but could not seem to do that. Any thoughts or ideas about this problem?
