    Hi everyone, I found a pigeon in my yard two days ago. I brought it in and weighed the bird, the poor thing only weighs approx. 200 grams. I have been giving the bird pedialyte and observed it eat and drink the first day. This is the second day and the bird's weight has me worried. I have...

    He jumped up and grabbed it while it was trying to fly away. I yelled and he dropped it. The pigeon seemed startled and I picked it up and checked it over and it didn't seem to be bleeding from anywhere. I put it in a large dog kennel in a rabbit run we have outside. That was two weeks ago...

    Hey everyone i have a 3 week oldish squab that might be sick. My sister said it pooped on her and it was yellowish and smelled really bad. When i see the bird it looks like its breathing heavily somewhat but that might be because its young? il see if i can get a video of it.

    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...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Walked out into the Workshop to do some Work just now, and what do I see but a little Squeaker sitting prim and composed, right on the floor, next to the old Buick. I guess he fell somehow from a Nest in the 14 feet up ceiling, but trouble is, I do not know where, and it is hard to get to...

    Hi. This is my first time posting, but it's also the first time I've ever had a pigeon! Paloma was found as a featherless baby by a coworker of mine in the rain and he raised her for a week before deciding that he wasn't around enough to take care of it properly. So two days ago, Paloma was...

    I have a pigeon problem, and before I just throw up a net, I thought I'd check with you experts first. I live in San Jose, California, and I have two maybe three wild pigeons with chicks who have made my apartment balcony their nest and home, and I have to get rid of them for all the obvious...
