  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Well, I've got myself another fledgling friend, in my rescue box wth some warmth, food, & water for a couple of days... & you should see her tail! When my partner gets home, I'll see if I can get a good picture of it - it looks like she narrowly escaped the grasp of something, probably a crow or...

  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Good evening: I am new to this forum. First off, I live on a farm in upstate New York with a large flock of wild pigeons (I am assuming rock doves). Within the last month, I have had to rescue 4 young pigeons. One was injured (it appears to have a dropped wing), one was born with a rotated...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm in Surrey and yesterday found a pigeon running away from a cat in my garden. I took it to wildlife rescue and they said there's nothing physically wrong with it except for a minor old wound between its wings which they put some antiseptic on. I tried to release it when I got home but...

    Hello, I need some advice please. We had 2 baby pigeons on our balcony. They are about 2 months old. The mother has left them a while ago while the father kept returning to feed them. When they finally started flying, one of the pigeons would leave with the father and only return at night to...
  7. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a young pigeon that is a little over a month old. She (or he) is a bit peckish and bites us all the time. She doesn't seem to tame, and even the offer of food doesn't help. She keeps inside of her cage all the time, and won't come out on her own. When she is taken out her only focus is...

    I saw a pigeon in Leeds city centre it was sat on the ground, in between a car and the pavement and was sat asleep (6:30pm). It seemed an odd place to be asleep, so I went over and it didn’t move (unusual for a city pigeon). I moved my hand towards it and it came over to me, and snuggled into my...

    Hi, I found a squeaker out of nest early about four weeks ago, she was doing well, learned to fly, eating well, etc., and I thought she would be ready for release. But then a or two day ago, she became lethargic, and yesterday or day before stopped eating. Someone suggested it might be high lead...
  13. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello pigeon.biz users! (English is not my native language, I apologize for my mistakes ^^") At Friday, a week ago, I found a pigeon behind a bus stop. Big ball of fluff, apathetic, standing still, with blood under the wing. Took it to the vet (found the avian one!) immediately, then I took it...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, Hope you can help me. I found this morning in my garden a young pigeon wondering around. It seems the young of a common street pigeon. It drinks water by himself and tries to fly a little but with no luck. Everytime it sees other pigeons coming to feed, it goes close to them and asks for...

    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...
  17. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    While visiting my brother yesterday he gave me 4 very young pigeons.He said originally there were 13 but they have been dying because there are no parent birds. By looking at some pictures on here of day by day growth of a pigeon I estimate that the youngest looking one is about 25-28 days old...

    One of our birds has light-white eyes with a pink-ish outer ring, rather than the orangish color that the others have. Is this an indication of a young bird? Thier ceres are all about the same. Darker grey near the beak changing to almost white. Maybe 1/5 grey the rest white-ish. She is a...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found an abandoned/lost pigeon with a lame foot. He is about 3 weeks old. He is not afraid of me and seems to be comfortable in the cage I keep him in at night. I let him play in the yard. His tail seems very short, too short for him to fly. He has all of his adult feathers, and looks like an...

    Hey all, I'm new to the board today since finding "Fuzzy," a sweet young pigeon that appears to have a broken leg/wing. I found him/her sitting in an urban parking lot and when he tried to get away from me he would take a few steps and then his leg would appear to give out and he'd fall. I...
