  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Last night I went to take the trash out and there was a pigeon in my driveway. He was just sitting completely still and blinking, he wouldn't even turn his head. I could get extremely close to him but didn't touch him so as to not scare him. After a while he began to walk around and crane his...

    Hi, it's Sumana here. My 1.5 yrs old female pigeon is sick. She use to be very active but now she is sitting idle fluffing her feathers with her eyes closed throughout the day. I don't see any canker lesions inside her mouth. She is having watery poop. Eating less drinking more. She is...

I do an overall check, there are no wounds, broken wings, visible damages. For now on looks like he/she sleeping. We gave water, some seeds. But for now...

    Hello, I have these 2 beautiful pigeons I desperately need rehomed or rehabbed. I took them in one as a pmv male pigeon, one as a squab.

    Hi all, We've recently rescued a racing pigeon and have noticed some abnormal behaviours such as a rasping sound that's getting more and more intense, scratching of the face, a coughing/sneezing sound quite often, opening and closing of the beak as if trying to chirrup and not being able to...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, About a week ago I noticed a pigeon nest on a traffic light not too far from my house in Montreal (Quebec, Canada). Aside from the odd choice of location, they seemed to be doing well, and I could see one parent coming and going. I'm not sure if it was always the same parent or if they...

    Need your urgent assistance. The eggs are 3 days old but the female sits one egg only. Should I fix the nest which is poorly built or just leave things as they are.
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A week ago, I found a dove in my friends courtyard. He seemed confused and so my friend picked him up and put him in a spare finch cage. It is WAY to small for him, so I let him out almost every day to fly around my room, but he really needs a better solution. He seems to not mind me handling...

  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    We found an injured morning dove about 3hrs ago. Being bird owners (parrot) we could not let the poor bird suffer. We placed her in a box, with a blanket for a 'nest' after reading many posts, secured her wing (it appears broken) and gave her some water and seed. It is a general seed mix...

    Just caught a neighbour's cat dragging a pigeon across our deck. Stopped the attack and tried to determine the injury specifics, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Definetely tore a significant amount of feathers from the flesh from middle of neck to shoulder (where wing meets the body)...

    Hey guys, I'm worried about one of the breeding cocks that was given to me, something looks weird on his neck. His neck never looked that way before until I noticed today. Is he sick? If so what does he have and what treatments would work?

    Hello! My pigeon is about 2 months old and has just recently learned to fly. He was fine up until he was about two months, and then this small bulge appeared in the middle of his throat.
