  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm from singapore and found a squab hiding behind a rubbish dump in the rain, I've tried calling the SPCA but it seems them don't take in birds of any kind, so I've been following instructions from some rescue sites in terms of feeding (Mashed oats and calcium powder(from my turtles) and a...

    Hello again, this will be the second time I've asked for advice. This time on my baby with crop stasis. About 10 days old, and has been suffering with this since 4 days old. Believe me, I've tried it all. First noticed bad on day 5 and his crop hadn't emptied in 30 hours, tried warm Pedialyte...

    I have a pair of fancy pigeons that abandoned their egg as soon as it began to hatch. I purchased Kaytee exact hand feeding formula and began tube feeding the squab (tube placed directly in the crop). The problem is that I don't think his crop is emptying fast enough. He is now 4 days old, but...

    Really sorry to use capitals but I feel this is some what an emergency. Leonard seemed a bit swollen yesterday so I put him on a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel (as directed on here), unfortunately I came to check on him an hour later and he was panting with his mouth open. I took him off...

    Hi folks -- I have a question regarding Freebird, a young homing pigeon who belongs to another board member (Squeaker). Freebird suffered a hawk attack a few months ago -- his injury was fairly extensive, and he was not treated with antibiotics (except topically) following the attack. He...

    Hi, I have taken over hand feeding two baby Woodies three days ago. I think they're about 10 days old, give or take a couple of days, not totally sure. I was keeping them on heat but last night I noticed they were hyper-ventilating so I took them off. I'm keeping them in an airing cupboard...

    Hi, I have bought the book ''Vet's Tips For Fanciers'' by Dr. Zsolt Talaber. In this book, Dr. Talaber has a very good article about Zeolite. I wrote to him to know the quantity we should mix into drinking water as it is not written in the article. I would like to know if someone already tried...

    I rescued a day old wild squeaker and have been feeding her since. She's been growing well until about three nights ago when the electricity went out, her heating pad turned off and she got cold. Since then she has slowed down on her eating and today she has refused food (ZooPreem baby bird...

    Hi, This evening our cat came sauntering up to us with a young pigeon in his mouth. He has feathers with some dawn poking through. He had a small puncture in his wing but no blood and the wing doesn't look broken. Though he seems quite a bit awkward when he moves. We found this forum and...

It smells sour, and when I offered him some water, I noticed that when his beak went in to get some, the liquid that came off his beak...

    What do you get when you put an amateur dove owner, two young parents and a runty baby together? Well, you get something to do over the Christmas break. My friend is the new owner of two ringneck doves, who are young and new parents... They managed to hatch an egg, though seemed to be unsure...

    Hello, We have two pigeons that we have been rehabbing. The first one was a young one (still squeaking when found) that I am 99% sure had PMV. This bird is recovering well, attempting flight, but is still not feeding itself well. The second bird, an adult, we found walking in a circle...
