    Hi, a little over a month ago I found a banded dove from a funeral release place that didn't want her back. She seemed fine but n after sneezing once and awhile for a few days she now wheezes quiet a bit. I started giving her the BIRDrx formula, putting it on her perches bc I can't pick her up...

    Hi everyone, A few days ago a kind lady found a fledgling pigeon. He was limping and wouldn't fly. A few days passed and the pigeon suddenly could not stand or walk. I have taken him into care. He is on amoxyclav and meloxicam. I have done some research and I am wondering if it is possible that...

    My female pigeon started passing really large and wet droppings (can I even call them droppings at this point?) and it seems very unhealthy. Most of the droppings themselves are brown and don't necessarily seem unhealthy, there's just so much of it and it's quite wet, but a couple of them have...

    So about 2 months ago I rescued an around 1-year-old pigeon from my school's vet office (he had a ring on but they couldn't find his owner). He was found with an injured wing. I started to feed him out of my hands (a bowl that I held in my hand) from the beginning. He got used to it really fast...

    Hi. Today was a sad day as one of the pigeons I've recently brought has passed away - he was sitting most of the time quietly and calmly in the cage, drinking water and eating normally. He did not want to fly anywhere. I found him on a garbage bin at night when it was humid and it was getting...

    Hello, A little over a week ago, I found this injured dove in my backyard. Completely unable to fly. I brought him in my house and kept him in a cardboard box with food and water for a few days. He looked to be healing as he was trying to fly around my house. The other day I attempted to...

    Continuing this discussion: https://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f23/my-balcony-pigeons-119538.html Long story short: He doesn't move very much. Doesn't get to eat often since his bigger sister proactively intercepts parents and eats all the food. I caught him sneezing a couple of times. This is what...
