Is the bird showing any other symptoms?

I would highly advise that you stop feeding the bird rice, they should be eating a pigeon seed mix. Pigeons should get only 2% long grain brown rice in their seed mix.

For now I would try baby bird formula and get off the seed and see how it digests further, if it is digesting everything and pooping solid transfer to easily digestible seed (the smaller seeds) and put the bird on a good pro-biotic.

Here is one pigeon seed mix, I would feed the smaller seeds like milo and other smaller ones once digestion gets better. http://purgrain.com/Ingredients-2010.html

feeding only Rice is bad, rather feeding one seed is also bad, there are worms that look like rice seeds!
