  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?

I need help; my dad rescued a baby pigeon from the crows who I think must have got it dropped from the nest. The poor squab looks to be around 17-23 weeks old and its one eye is blind and its one claw...

    I am looking after my grandfathers pigeons while he is away and i have noticed that one of the babies (about 20 days) has got a really swollen leg- too swollen even to determine whether it is broken or not. He moved out of the nest and was on a flat ground for a few days-could it be splay legs...

    My daughter found a pigeon flopping around on the street several hours ago in Bilbao Spain. We are from the US and do not know if there is a place to take sick and injured birds here like we have in Florida and have no idea how to even begin to find something like this out here. We gently...

    Hi all, first of all, Ive checked the chevita site for symptoms and treatments and come to a conclusion that my bird (which has lost a lot of weight in the last 2 weeks, and cannot fly anymore) has been infected with salmonella, and the treatment required for it is chloramphenicol-IP (paraxin) -...

    Hi, On Saturday I saw a little pigeon walking around Venice Beach. It was limping and looked weird. I found out that it had fallen out of it's nest the night before and one of the employees at the food place was sort of taking care of it. It wasnt an infant but it wasnt fully grown either...

    I've been feeding my pigeon with a syringe that lacks a tube to lead down the crop. My feeding method has been to pry open his beak, stick the tip of the nozzles behind his toung, and squirt as much in I can before the bird makes it apparent that it wants to swallow or breath. He doesn't like me...
