  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, This evening our cat came sauntering up to us with a young pigeon in his mouth. He has feathers with some dawn poking through. He had a small puncture in his wing but no blood and the wing doesn't look broken. Though he seems quite a bit awkward when he moves. We found this forum and...

He twists his head and is dizzy and falls over I cannot give him rescue fluids because his head moves all over the place. I have him in the house on a low heating...

    About 5 days ago, i found a baby dove in my backyard at the base of the date palm that is home to a flock of feral doves. Based on the day-by-day photos of racing pigeon babies here, I have concluded that she is about 17 days old now. http://www.speedpigeon.com/baby_racing_pigeon.htm At...

    Five days ago a beautiful mourning dove hit a window in our home and was stunned but able to move around. Her wings are not droopy or misaligned and she can flap them but cannot fly. We have been giving her wild bird mix and water which she has daily. She hides under the trees and behind the...

    Hi everyone! Hope I'm posting this in the right place-I've already emailed to the Pigeon911 Yahoo group and haven't received a response so thought I'd try this forum, which seems pretty active... Hubby was doing yardwork today when two pigeons (seem to be helmet pigeons) flew into the yard...

    Hey all!! As some of you already know, I now have 20 pigeons.... and have fallen head over heals in love with them. Today, as I sat in the coop watching them, talking to them and listening to them, I had a question that I hope some of you can answer. In the last couple of days, I have done a...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello everyone, I am hoping someone can help me. Yesterday I saw a beautiful white dove in our driveway. I thought he might be hurt so I told my husband who grew up with birds to get closer to see if he was hurt. He walked right up to him, picked him up and put him on his shoulder. Then our...

    Is there any trick to make birds lay eggs? I haven't seen any eggs from one pair for a while. Whilst others lay once in a blue moon but nothing ever comes of them. The ones that do lay- their last one hatched at christmas and they have sat on a few of the otherbirds eggs once but they lost...

    I found a male pigeon with a broken wing today, and brought him to the vetmed school here (I go to the university of Illinois). The break is in the joint of the wing, so the vet I spoke to said that it will heal stiff, and he won't be releasable. Because of that, he'll probably be euthanized...

    I was watching a sick one in my local flock during the tail end of last week. It was always on the roof with the others but staying a bit off to the side, humped up, occasionally throwing up and fluffed as well. For a few days, there was no way on earth to catch it. However, I finally found...

    Hello! Hubby used to raise pigeons as a kid, and is very interested in doing so again. However, for now, we are in a flat in a residential area of our city. There are lots of feral pigeons around -- in fact, last night there was one who was in front of our home for a few hours, just hangin' out...
