I took her out to see if she would act normally and she did not. She Would Walk A few steps then sit...

    Hello I came home today to find one of my diamonds with a bloody, bare skinned back! It seems like one of the other doves got a little too aggressive and attacked the poor guy, plucking off his entire back, leaving a bloody mess! (Please note, over the two years I have had my birds, this has...

    Hi all: Been a while since my last post. As discussed then, I moved to a new home about 100miles from the old one back in January and took my lofts and birds with me. They have not flown since the move. That day is coming soon. They have not been in contact with other birds since then...

    I have one pigeon that I thought was laying an egg but is now I think just weak. It is just sitting on the floor in the loft (about 2 days). Vent is clean, no discharges from eyes/nostrils. Did not eat or drink when I put it by the food/water. Thinking of tube feeding it a something. They...

    Another baby found me... I swear they know who to go to! I was feeding the pigeons at Union Station, LA and this little guy/girl walked up to me and sat down up against my leg. His (going to use masculine pronouns just for simplicity) beak was sealed shut by yellow stuff, poop, and dried blood...

    I had posted about my really small and weak squab in the forums a while ago. no one really seemed concerned that he was weaker and way smallest then his brother. sell, the parents stopped feeding him almost completely, and only feeding his brother. I've been feeding him myself, with baby chicken...

    well to me it seems as if they are favoring feeding the stronger one. I've only seen them feed the weaker one a few times, its obvious that they aren't feeding the weak one as much. should i take him out and raise him myself? i don't want him to die he is looking weak. and if so, what food do i...

    Hi guys. My Father recently bought pigeons home as pets, so I'm new to all this. My pigeon is really sick. (symptoms of Canker, I believe). He is puffed up all day with swollen throat and wings are drooping below his body. Drinks excessive amounts of water,rapid weight loss, sits in one place...

    Pigeon lived with me for 3 years. It walked fine, but then before my very eyes, its foot gave away. Pigeon has probably pain in one foot because it cannot stand on it. Also, when it stands on good foot and tries to put the sick foot away under her feathers the foot does not hide all the way in...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have never touched a bird before today, so I'm really in over my head here, but here's my story. I was out walking today, and about a mile from home I found a baby bird huddled against the wind, just sitting in the middle of the sidewalk. At first I thought it was dead and started to leave...

    I had a feral pigeon for several years. Two years ago, I saved her from viral infection (PMV), death, by tube feeding her, etc, for many weeks. But I could not let her back into the wild - she lost one eye, her grip was weak, etc. But otherwise, she became a good friend to me. She used to lay...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello kind pigeon and dove folks! After a few days of spring-like weather, we had quite a snowstorm last night and some high winds. I see that there is, what I believe to be, a Mourning Dove on my porch looking a little bedraggled. He or she is walking around and eating seed, but looks a little...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi! :-) I was hoping someone could help me with this baby Eared Dove I found. I found him last Friday, he was standing on the sidewalk without moving and it was getting dark so I took him home. We named him Michael :D I believe he's 2-3 weeks old. I noticed his crop was very full; it was...

    Just to backup what I learned from this site sometime back. If you suspect a pigeon has canker, Fish Zole is a excellent treatment. It works very fast and has never failed to work for me yet. Canker is usually fairly easy to diagnose. I can spot a bird with canker without ever getting within...
