    I just got a pigeon, and it's been six day since she came in to my home. Since she had been mistreated before I am giving her space but recently I noticed something is wrong. 1. She is sneezing here and there. Not too much, so I thought it was okay. 2. She is all fluffed up in a corner, doesn't...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found this pigeon unable to fly. Possibly a broken or fractured wing? Also looks weird so I’m assuming it may be sick. Gave it some water but not a lot and it perked up a little. Both undersides of the wings look the same, but I also don’t know what I’m looking for. If this isn’t a pigeon...

    hi, for context, I live in the Philippines where COVID cases are wilding out and the nearest avian vet is an hour away in the country's foremost COVID melting pot. I am yet to be vaccinated because I am underage. Now, my grandmother found a wild pigeon in our backyard and put it in a dog cage so...

    Hello, newbie here. I have an (apparently breeding) pair of pigeons sitting on two eggs for 10 days. I noticed 3 days ago the male was fluffed and the next day, shivering. According to my (internet) research I think it is coccidium(?) so ordered some items. Of course they are taking forever to...

    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...
