    I'm not sure I'm doing this right. I have a canary finch seed mix, but Turkey only eats the tiny white balls from it. She does not eat the thin black ones (thistle?) or the sunflower seeds that are unshelled, not even the small pieces of it, that I've noticed, but she picks them up and puts...

    Today, we caught a pigeon with a deformed leg. We had been watching him and feeding him outside for almost a year. Today his leg was much worse, so we caught him and we have him in a cage now because he has difficulty walking and is picked on by the other males. Would it be okay to have his...

    Pigeon people, A young dove I received has a torn throat. The tissue is torn so it flaps away from the wound. I can see another slight tear in the next layer of tissue. I put triple antibiotic on the area but the skin flap will not stay up. It bled a great deal but SEEMS to be stopping. I...
