Thank you for helping this baby.

Where in the UK are you located?

Check this link for help:

Baby pigeons do not know how to eat on their own, they have to be hand fed, with either a baby bird formula or grain/seeds, or drained canned peas/corn, but that depends on how old the baby is.

Please let us know the apporx age of the youngster, check the link and compare:

Meanwhile keep him from moving around on the leg too much. Can you post a pic of the broken leg, yes it can be mended with a splint depends on where it is.
