    My pseudo-pet pigeon was attacked by a cat today, she managed to escape flying but was wounded. I can't see the wound itself because of the feathers, but she bleeds from a small spot on the chest. Little droplets fall every 10 or 20 minutes, depending on how much she moves. I started giving her...

  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Actually he found my pigeon outside and wanted to get in the aviary to eat. My son went out and put food and water out for him and then approached him. He didn't seem to concerned about my son until he touched him and then flew off. Then he came right back to eat and drink. He ate and drank...

    Hello, my dove has a small wound on her shoulder and I was told to put hydrogen peroxide as well as anti biotitic cream on it, what I wanted to know is if there's a way to help her stop pecking at her wound? She's nesting at the moment and I suppose because of this she doesn't have much to do...

    I have a pigeon who had got stitches on the skin at the back of neck. During the initial days, the wound seemed to be healing fine. The removal of stitches was deferred twice and finally opened on the 12th day by the VET. However, as can be seen in the photo below (which was taken after rinsing...

    Hi! I found a pigeon with a broken wing last night--I have her resting in a pet carrier with water and some tiny pieces of walnuts, but she isn't interested in eating. I contacted a rescue org last night, and they were working on lining up a vet for her, but I know they are terribly busy so I...

    I found a pigeon that I believe was shot in the wing with some sort of an airsoft gun, the back of the wing is a little bruised. It's been a couple of days now and it seems to be doing fine, I'm just not sure if it will die from infection. What should I do?

    Hi everyone, I found an injured pigeon and I need your help. I saw her (don't want to call her "it") around 24 hours ago and she was laying by my window. I didn't know if she was hurt or just tired or hot, as it was a really hot day here yesterday. I waited until dawn to check on her and she...

    Kind of a long story here (but there is a question, I swear!) I'm completely new here and we've settled nicely into a routine, but there is a minor problem with a dove that we found. A few months ago, in April, my mother in law found a baby dove hiding in the grass below a tree. It had fallen...

    Tonight as my husband and I were throwing away the trash we saw a pigeon underneath his car. We thought nothing truly of it at first and walked upstairs to our condo and continued. After a few hours we looked again and saw that the majestic white pigeon still had not moved. We decided we would...

  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I need some help/advice please. Late last night (around 10:30 pm) I found a young feral pigeon that had obviously, for some reason, left the nest too early. It was on the side of a busy highway, under an underpass (where pigeons live), and obviously in some distress. This by itself is not an...

    I was trying to pair up a new male pigeon with one of my females. It all seemed to be going OK. I put her in the males breeding cage and after a bit of pecking they settled down. I checked them throughout the day and they were fine. They are king pigeons. During the night the female attacked...

    Hi all, Hoping for a bit of advice on what to do. A falcon attacked my birds while they were flying out this afternoon. Thankfully I got them all back, though one has a wound on the back of his neck. The skin has been sliced open, almost full thickness and about 3/4 inches long, but it has bled...

    Me and a friend found an injured pigeon. We took it in and examined it's wing which was hanging somewhat low. Part of the wing is split open and the bone appears to be snapped. We bought some gauze to try and hold the wing together and possibly let it heal for the next couple weeks, but we can't...

    I recently posted regarding my rescue dove midget. Midget had extensive surgery to repair a massive skin tear around his left leg and abdomen following a cat attack. Midget seemed to be recuperating well, so i left the wound alone, feeling more interference could end up in the suture line...
