  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a baby pigeon about a month ago with a broken leg. He was doing great up until about a week ago, when he started displaying sick bird syndrome. I took him to a vet where they said his crop was all backed up and the vet massaged all the food out of his crop. He put him on Amoxicillin...

    Few days ago, a gal brought me a youngster, a squeaker, stubby tail, plump, nice looking (the Pigeon I mean, not the gal, although the gal was good looking too )...anyway, someone had found it wandering in the street and brought it to her. She had fed it via syringe, a few meals of K-T...

    I have another baby in trouble. It does not appear ill that I can see. It's an 11-day old chick that hatched the same day as its sibling, but fell behind in size and doesn't seem to be getting enough to eat. The same thing happened with the last set this pair raised and from what I can see...

    Thanks, everybody. Predictably, I have more questions, now that my visitor has been around for a few days. He is housed in a large plastic cat carrier on a 3rd floor balcony with sun during the day, and a metal mesh door that he can see out of. If it gets a bit cool at night (we're down to...

    We had to go out of town for a few days and had the neighbor looking after my flock. After being back for a day, I noticed one of the babies (35-40days old) not looking well. After checking it out, I found canker in its mouth. I gave it a canker pill and brought it in the house. After some water...

    Hi, I have a squeaker (about 2 weeks old) which an aquaintance passed to me, one of her birds (she released the parents by mistake!) which she think somehow fell and it now has a red, swollen hock joint, I can't feel a break, but it might be hard to detect while it's swollen, she can't put any...

    I have access to two baby pigeons in our barn and am seriously thinking of taking one for a friend for Pij. They are three weeks old. I am wondering, though, if I end up taking one that is the same sex as Pij, whatever that may be, will they get along?Pij is seven months old now. Will he accept...

    Bud has lost alot of weight during over the last week due to the crop being slow. Kept him on hand rearing formula because told that by giving seeds will slow it even further. The crop was working again and going really well. That's when I decided to try with the seeds. There is no interest at...

    I came home this afternoon to find Spirit up on her cage perch "sneezing", but not the normal type. Now I think she'd been vomiting. But I opened the cage to let her out, and she flew off, eventhough I had treats for her, which she never refuses. Then she started vomiting green mucous stuff...

    Hello everyone, a few weeks ago I posted about the neighbor living below me, complaining about the dirt my pigeons were doing. Anyways, I put up spinwheels along the railing so they don't sleep anymore on my balcony, I also stoped feeding them completely 3 days ago. So the mess is much less than...

    Skye is still without his voice, he does the "roo-koo wak..wak" without the "rookoo" He's been to the avian vet twice now, he had a thorough examination. The vet said she has seen cases where pigeons have lost their voice, especially during the moulting season. She said his feet looked dark...

    I don't have much experience with birds, but am naturally good with animals and have become a new pigeon Mom. I found this little wild pigeon baby who had apparently recently fallen from his nest while still too young to fly. Boom, he lands in the middle of Times Square and hasn't a clue what...

    I feed the pigeons roosting in my roof/ yard and some of them liked cheese bread. It is Ok to feed that to them or will it affect their health? ------------------ Little steps are often the hardest to take. We are too used to making leaps in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard...

    Dear Members and Vixen especially .. Fellow member, Marian, was good enough to have the circumstances of Andrea being euthanized carefully scrutinized by one of the senior rehabilitators at the Sacramento center when Andrea had been taken for care. The results of her investigation follow and...

    Buddy is about 28 days old. He still does not have feathers on the side of his head nor on the back of his neck down to between his wings. His poop is watery and bubbly. He seems to be losing weight instead of gaining. Is this anything I can give him to fatten him up and stop the bubbles...
