    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...

    Hi I rescued this pigeon about 3 weeks ago, actually he just appeared in our yard, I am thinking he was set free at a wedding or some sort of ceremony. He always seemed a bit weak but what I have done so far is gave him meds for worms, fleas and vitamins. Today he showed up with a swollen...

    I didnt realize until now that the fact that this baby is only 1/5 the size of his brother or sister (see photo for comparison) must have been caused by a disease and I didn't check him. Now, when I looked at him, he breaths with a cracking sound, the tail is bobbing and the back is swollen...

    Feeling horrible. I left two birds out together who had previously been fine and can only guess the old hen beat up the newer male. He has a pretty bruised and swollen eye now. Discovered this at 10pm when all the shops except 24 hour pharmacy were closed. I read on here that people have been...

    I found this site doing a search with duck leg infections, I hope someone can help me! I have some 10 day old ducklings. Their bands were left on for too long and several of them had some degree of injury from them and I feel terrible about it but I thought they were all ok. One of the...

    Same old story, found a baby pigeon... His eyes were extremely swollen, he looked like ET. There was some blood on the beak, not a lot, no injury anywhere. Gave him water and vitamins, place some ice around the eyes, next day took him to the vet. As there is no discharge in the eyes, the vet...
