  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    The other day my boyfriend and I found a pigeon in our little town that we believe to be domesticated. It's white with brown markings, an orange beak, and red-ish legs. It's not banded. When we saw it outside it was walking into store fronts and standing still in the middle of pathways which...

    Hi! My pigeon seems to be doing well. I took him to the vet on Wednesday and he was treated for lice (seems to be good). The vet took a stool sample and just called me to say that he wants to de-worm him. I've read some posts on here that you shouldn't de-worm a pigeon below four months of age...

    I got a call from someone down the street that they found a crow that looked like its wing was broken. I grabbed a towel, ran down, cornered it, and wrapped it up. When I got home I gave him a warm water bath to clean everything since there was a lot of blood and after I took him out of the...
