    The poor little guy sounds like he's got some sort of respiratory thing going on. It sounds like his nose is stopped up. Not all the time, just once in a while. He's got a nest mate that appears to be just fine. Both are the same size, growing like they are supposed to, poops look good. He...

    One of my pigeons has an abnormally long upper beak. So far its grown straight, and he's able to eat normally, but its been continually growing, and Im afraid it will grow crooked or just keep growing long to the point where it will disrupt his eating, preening, etc. This pigeon is just a few...

    When I went downstairs to take care of the pigeons this morning, I found drops of blood here and there on the floor. My first thought was that one of the silly little quail that are living there till they can catch a ride to Sacramento must have gotten injured. They are small and frolic about...

    Hi everyone :) Last weekend while I was meant to be working with one of my horses a baby dove managed to fly into the mirrors around the outdoor. I went over and scooped her (?) up so the dogs wouldn't eat her and she was obviously in shock, so I took her into the barn, sat her in my cap and...

    I've just rescued a young feral whose left eye has a wart like growth on both of the eyelids. The eyelids are closed but I was able to open them gently and it seems the eye itself may be all right. Has anyone seen anything like this? Thank you.
