    Hi all, I'm rehabbing a bird (Greybird) who suffered pretty severe breaks to both wings but is healing in such a way that he may be releasable. On the advice of my vet (who has a lot of experience with pigeon rehab) I kept him in a dog kennel (about 3 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet; lxwxh) for 1 week...

    I have a pigeon that turned up with a wound on top joint of the wing(i.e. the point at which it folds) and another scrape wound where this touches the chest. I could not work out how she got this wound, it looked like she had somehow scraped it quite bad. It was obviously very sore and although...

    Today, I was walking to the bank to pay some bills. There was an area of a muddy ground, filled with puddles (it was rainig recently). When I saw this bird, dragging it wing, and a fat home cat, looking very interested. I decided to catch the bird, it was not easy. It jumped and ran...
  10. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi All I have several pigeons that come to my balcony for food every day. One of them I call lazy because his wings almost drag on the ground. Is there something wrong with him, or is that just his preference? He is a rather large pigeon and doesn't seem to have any problem flying or holding...

    Please help. I just noticed a speck of blood on the wall next to Ambrose's crate. I took him out and found a ruffled area of feathers with some dried blood. I ran a bowl of warm water as I was convinced it was a puncture wound from Friday's disaster ( will explain in a bit) . But once I bathed...
