    Was at work today and found out pest control would be arriving to exterminate a bunch of pigeons , of course I could not let that happen so I caught the baby and took it home . At the time I found it , crop milk from the parents was being fed so I thought giving formula would not be a hassle ...

    Hello, after reading some posts' suggestions, I bought chicken 16% protein crumble for my ferals. There was also crumble for growing chicks so I got that for the squabs. When I got home I realized the chick feed was medicated for coccidia. Can I use this medicated feed for anything?

    Hey guys, I finally worked up the courage to seek some guidance on my squabs journey. I found an egg one morning while completing my exercise, but it wasn’t just an egg. In the middle of the road stood a mother pigeon and an egg underneath it. As I tried to make them a new nest and move them...

    Hello! I am hoping for some advice. We have a baby pigeon in our garden nesting in our wisteria, it is approximately 11 days old. Thus far the parents have been really good, although the parents have been leaving the baby on its own for a few hours at a time since about 1 week old, and have been...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm in Surrey and yesterday found a pigeon running away from a cat in my garden. I took it to wildlife rescue and they said there's nothing physically wrong with it except for a minor old wound between its wings which they put some antiseptic on. I tried to release it when I got home but...

    Hi there! I have a homer squab that is about four days old who suddenly has a crossed beak. I didn't notice it until today despite seeing it daily since it hatched. The parents kept letting it roll out of the nest in favor of its larger nest mate, so I put it under another pair of birds with...

    Hi all, I have 2 squabs hatched around 3 days ago. I went to check up on them today and noticed that there are a lot of little bugs crawling all over them, on their beak, inside their ears and on their body. Can anyone tell me what these are? How do I get rid of them? Will the squabs survive...

    Hi I'm new around here and to pigeons. I have a one week old squab with a lump on the left side of its neck that I just noticed today and I'm not sure what it is. I can't tell if it's canker, I can't get the beak open enough to see down the throat. The crop is empty and he/she is fairly...

    I have successfully rehabbed feral pigeons time and time again and always been able to do so with absolutely no fatalities. I've always raised to release and have had success in birds ranging from 2 days to 2+ weeks and always have managed to keep them wild enough to release and those who...

    Hi, everyone. TL;DR Two Rock Pigeons are growing a healthy squab on my window sill. I like the birds but the nest smells really bad and is dirty, as one would expect. The way the nest is set up, it is very possible for mites and all kind of unsanitary bacteria from the droppings or whatnot to...

    Little backstory of this dove is that we have these nests by our front door, but there are also screech owl nests and red tailed hawks near by that hunt these doves and unfortunately the mother and father of these eggs were eaten so i incubated the eggs. One of them actually hatched and now im...

    One of my pair's squab, Bob, will not stay in her nest. I found him on the floor of my inside section, and put her back in. She immediately flopped back down again, so is she trying to fly:confused: Will his parents still feed her? Any help appreciated
