Found this rock pigeon baby about a week ago. Droppings turned green and watery after 3 days, quite smelly. Feeding with pronutro. Baby sometimes yawns after feeding and stretches it's neck. Missing feathers on neck and crop area.

Have got Meditrich available. Should I treat it? Baby weighs about 150g. How much should I give and for how long. If baby has not got canker and still gets medicine, will it be harmfull to baby? How much food should be given and how often, I think baby must be 3 weeks old.

It's likely the baby does have canker. I have one of similar weight and I'm giving her 1/4 of a pill, once a day. I'd treat yours for 7 days.
Do take care not to over fill the crop. Probably 15-18 cc's per feeding will do.
Most important...only feed when the crop has emptied.

I weigh baby pigeons daily to make sure they are making progress.

Thanks for the info, will start with treatment. How much is a cc if you convert that to milliliter?
