A bruise usually does not get infected. As long as he is eating and drinking and his droppings look healthy, he can be released when he can fly. When that may be I can't tell you. The only way to see if it is broken is to have an X-ray done by the vet. But you would have to say he is your pet and name him and pay the bill. Iam not sure about you're country but in many places they would just euthanize a disabled feral pigeon. Because they are considered a pest.I found a pigeon that I believe was shot in the wing with some sort of an airsoft gun, the back of the wing is a little bruised. It's been a couple of days now and it seems to be doing fine, I'm just not sure if it will die from infection.
What should I do?
Well unfortunately I'm not sure but it doesn't seem like it hasAre you certain there is not any foreign matter inside wing?
He can't fly and he's not holding his wounded wing properly, it's a little lower than the other one if that makes sense, quite loosen.Is he holding the wing normal and able to fly well?
I have him in my office next to my room, he can practice flying here when he heals up completely.do you have a room where he can practice flying before released?
I think at this point it could be more humane to Relinquish it to a vet. At least he won't suffer. The vet may even be allot like ours here in the US, all that I work with do not euthanize pigeons for no good reason, even if the law states they should. You could try calling any zoos on the island, they could have connections to a person who is trained to rehab animals and birds. Even the veterinarian could know of someone.Sadly I can't take him to a vet it would be too expensive for just a random pigeon. All I can do is to take care of him till he gets well or dies of infection
