I came home from school today and saw that one of my male pigeons 2 eyes were bloody & that the other male pigeon had blood on his beak. I assumed that the injured one was invading into the other pigeons nest and got messed up pretty badly. I saw both babies that the parents were sitting on just sitting there. I thought they were dead so i picked both of them up and they were both still alive. But on one of the babies there were 2 wounds afflicted to him. It's not deep wounds but I'm afraid it can get infected. I grabbed a cotton swab and dip it in warm water and applied it to the wound. I than applied neosporn to the afflicted area, then applied a bandaid to cover it up( I didnt have any other wound medication) I never had this problem before in my loft, I dont have any idea as to why this would happen. Now the parents of those 2 babies are a little bit hesitant on sitting on the babies. If i can get any suggestions on how to treat the baby please feel free to msg. Thanks!

The best thing to do would be to remove the babies form your loft and bring them inside because if you leave them in the loft, the same thing will likely happen. I would remove the band aid, go to the store and buy neosporin cream...not ointment. Use a Q-tip to covers the wounds and do so morning and evening.
I would bring them inside because the same thing may happen again and that would be horrible. You will need to supply the babies with supplemental heat until they are feathered. I use a heating pad, with a towel on top and set no higher than low.
Do you know how to hand feed?
