  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I have a baby pigeon with splayed legs. My father raises them and we have 10 or so. I was recently over there and my mother pointed out to me, the baby with a bad leg, my father was going to get rid of him the next day. I couldn’t handle that thought so I quickly jumped in to action trying to...

    New to Pigeon-Talk and am not too sure how it works. I found a baby pigeon 31st July and judging by photos, he looked about 14 days old. His leg was sticking out behind him you can see in the photo. Since then, one week later and a lot of iresearch on nternet web sites, I've managed to get his...

    One of my baby pigeon fell from its nest at birth. It cannot walk correctly and limps. What should I do? I read about splayed legs but I'm not sure if it's a splayed leg or a broken leg. Please help! I think it's more of a broken leg because when I tried to move it around, the leg was limp and...

    Hi - first post, and hope someone can give us a little advice please! We've successfully kept a happy flock of doves for the past couple of years, and have had to deal with the occasional illness, or injury. Usually a bit of time and attention in the 'bird hospital' sees them right again. But...

    Hello. I'm sorry to have my first post be one asking for help, but I don't know where else to go. Where I work, I have found a few baby pigeons that fall out of the nest. I suspect that some passers-by are throwing water bottles at them and knocking them out, based on the presence of bottles up...

    Our chick turned a week old yesterday. It's so big, it seems to be turning into Baby Huey. The other egg didn't hatch, but I left it in the nest so the baby would have something to push against it. Yesterday's pic of the chick is on page 2 of this thread...

My parents didn't know what to do with his leg as a baby (their friend had a pigeon with the same problem...

    Hi All, I'm currrently hand rearing two young chicks (which i have never done before). The parents refused to sit on the nest after a day so we decided to bring into the house and raise as they were becoming very cold & lifeless. Things were going fairly well for about 2 weeks, then one chick...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Ok, so I was driving hom from my ecology class on Friday afternoon and I saw a young bird flailing in the road by the stop sign. I stopped the truck, jumped out and scooped him up in a sweater I had stashed under the seat. (which I was surprised was even there as its 100 degrees outside) I knew...

    Well ...I know there's been a lot of threads and advice on splayed leg Syndrome. and great thanks to everyone who has helped!! I gave it my best, i tried foam bracing and wraps...but Timbit's good leg became swollen and infected from too much movement I guess.....so I took off the brace before...

I have tried foam and binding...the leg always turns backwards. I am not sure what to do as the fledgling...

    Hi everyone. I am in very need of help. You know how some of you guys told me in the other thread that I need to give the pigeons a nest bowl??? so the babies don't get splayed leg. My other pair of pigeons just layed her first egg and she didn't lay it in the bowl that i gave her. I don't know...
