One of its eye is covered by this yellow discharge it hardens up, but if I try to wipe it with water it gets softer and changes colour, but doesn't come off. Very sticky staff. He was very poorly and depressed when I have...

    I haven't posted here in a while! Hi everyone! I have still been keepin' birds! Made some major loft upgrades and everything is in good order- except this: One of my young birds died today, he was quite young (just about fully feathered under the wings) and quite underweight. His brother was...

    Hi everyone, I have a single, 4 year old pet pigeon that lives indoors. He has free rein of the house and and large cage that he is only in at night or if I need to go out. No other birds or animals. He has developed what seems to be a one eye cold. His right eye is watery, red (no swelling)...

Everyone is being fed top gun pigeon feed, has a loft where they can go out and sunbathe and get plenty of vitamin d and I’m not sure what happened to these two. My main question is do you guys think...

    She is the first female I’ve ever had so apologies if this is something that is obvious. She comes from a rough situation but her feathers are looking worse over the past few months as she finally puts on some more weight. her behavior seems normal and fairly energetic. I feed a standard...

    Hi everyone, My African collared dove is sick and I can’t work out what the problem is. Let me begin by saying there are no avian vets close to me, the nearest I have found is 150km and I don’t have a car. When I returned home Wednesday afternoon (2 days ago), I found her sitting much more...

    Hey guys! I’ve had a boy rescue pigeon named Chili since October. He’s been sick starting last week, he’s seen an exotics vet and with diagnostics we are suspecting he has hepatitis/hepatic lipidosis with a possible acute GI infection on top of it. He is doing better with supportive care now and...

    Hello pijies! I have a feral pigeon whom I rescued as a fledgling after a hawk attack about 3 years ago. She has been in general good health despite the injuries she endured from the hawk attack which left her with a hyper extended leg joint and a missing toe. My question to the community is...

    I found this pigeon outside my house an hour ago. It is wobbly, uncoordinated and lethargic. I couldn't find any obvious broken bones or injuries. Eyes and pupils seem normal when they are open, but it is spending a lot of time with eyes closed resting/sleeping. Some unusual head movements. When...

    Hello! So I recently picked up a lovely white fantail cross who had appeared in this woman’s yard. She has a band but her owner hasn’t been found so I took her in.

    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...
  16. 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...

    Hello, Yesterday a I found a pigeon on my porch in a high-rise. It was very passive and only moved away if I got too close. When I threw some rice on the floor for him to eat I noticed he have very erratic head movements that is not normal for birds. Is this bird sick? Should I contact the...
