sudden death

  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    We lost one of our bonded female pigeons suddenly (we had only the two birds as pets) about five days ago - she seemed perfectly fine that morning and was dead by the time my daughter got home from school. In shock we took Rio’s remains to an exotic pet veterinarian to find out what happened...

    My baby boy, my joker, Katra (I have threads about him here), was perfectly normal when I got home last night. Flew around, landed on me to coo and peck.

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I'm so upset! I found a little Whitewing dove in the yard, flapping around, not able to fly. I would have left it (let's call it a her), but the neighbor's cat was already eying it greedily, and I knew the cat would have it in no time, so hubby and I caught it and decided to feed it--either to...

    I've lost two pigeons suddenly, a week apart, and I've no idea what killed them. With the second loss (today) I plan to take him in for a necropsy. In the meantime I'd like to know if anyone has any ideas. I've kept pigeons for ten years and up until now have only had one other sudden death...

    I'm afraid of the responses I'm gonna get...but...As much as it hurts to type this, I'm not getting anywhere unless I get as many opinions as I can on what's happening to my birds.
