    I found a baby pigeon a few weeks ago that i’ve been slowly taking care of and there were no issues in its behaviour until recently.

    I noticed that one of my rescue pigeons was retaining water in the Crop and looked a little lethargic. I removed him from the loft and isolated him to better assets his condition. I checked his Crop and I noticed that he had a few grains and once I gently press on the crop I noticed that...

    last week my pigeon was having open mouthed breathing & wheezing noise. The vet asked me to give her deriphyllin(etofylline+theophylline) 0.3 ml as he suspected respiratory problem & it would help her with breathing. I gave her some homeo medicines. The breathing improved in 2days so I reduced...

    I am starting a new thread on Rudy, since I need help real fast. Yesterday, I noticed her looking a bit off. She had just starting mating Ruku, and I thought she might just be exhausted. Today morning, I saw her standing all bent over, with the the crop extending forwards. I took her in, and fed...

    I have two babies recently rescued from a building site at home, and one of them seems less hungry and less active than the other. I would not say the slow pigeon is unhealthy looking, but I am worried it may develop into something worse if I do not do something now. Yesterday I had to feed the...

    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...

    I have a Cock bird that is mating with a hen that has laid one egg and he can't release the air in his neck to the point his back of head is puffed up too. I used a #20 needle released the air but next day same thing, I think he has ruptured his craw and air is forced between craw and skin...

    I'll start off by saying I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I have never dealt with a bird before and am really upset over whether or not I'm actually killing the poor thing :( I ended up with her when she came to me doorstep, literally. Her parents built a very tiny, flimsy nest...

    Quick question for you all. I took a look at my Lahore hen today because she hadnt been acting like the other birds lately. She has just been sitting in her box and not really moving around. And I noticed her crop looked a little bigger than it usually does. So I picked her up and opened her...

    Aias found a grounded banded pigeon yesterday. We're calling her Nina. Anyway, originally, I didn't think it looked like there was anything wrong with her. I thought maybe just lost and dehydrated. Her feet/wings looked fine, she wasn't too puffed up and looked alert. So we set her up with a...
