Greetings pigeon talk members! :) I found a baby dove recently,
I believe he is about one week old.
I was wondering if there was anything
else that's good besides Kaytee exact that I could feed him,
Currently I am feeding him Gerber Single grain oatmeal baby cereal, is this okay to feed him?

Thanks :D

Hi Lisette,


A formula made from a variety of uncooked Grains and other ingredients would be best.


What kind of Dove do you think this is?


Where are you located?

I am almost positive its a Mourning Dove and I am in Phoenix, Arizona.

So then the food I am currently giving is not good?

His droppings are very runny and stringy, is this because of what I was feeding him?
I have some Ben-Bac for birds and reptiles, can I give him some of it?


Thanks :D

Hi Lisette,



A Base of 'KT', is fine, whether one also adds supplimental ingredients or not, but it must be prepared right ( which is not how the label says).


Images of the Dove?


Images of the poops?


How are you keeping her?

Keeping her warm?


How are you preparing the formula?

How are you feeding her?
