    hi guys, somebody from my old workplace just dropped off an ill young pigeon. The bird seems to be an adolescent, and fairly ill. It has very little spirit and is sitting, feathers puffed out, facing into the corner of the box, as though hiding its head. It also has absolutely no tail flight...

    At about 11:30pm last night I encounter a very docile pigeon. He let me first pet him then pick him up and he perched on my finger. I have very limited experience with birds, so I thought about the situation. I thought I would prompt him to fly. I tossed him up a couple feet, he flapped but...

    This morning my dad saw a pigeon outside and it was just going around in circles and was limping a lot. It tried to fly but couldn't so my dad bought it inside so it can be in the warmth and maybe help it. It has calmed down a bit but we can't do much and we don't want to leave it outside...
