It's a male, and i'm worried about his leg is very swollen, someone told me that a child took it and then got scared and thrown him down, don't know if that has something to do.

What is happening to my pigeon?





Excuse my broken English.

Does the bird try to walk on it?

Take the bird to an avian vet or qualified rehabber to get proper diagnosis, as they could be sprained, broke even blood circulation cut off or something other and requires immediate care.

The bird walks almost normal, it doesn't seem like he feels any pain.

I ask here first cause where i live there are no qualified bird vets.

thank you!.

What do the droppings look like?
Have you brought any new birds into your loft recently?
Do rodents get into your loft?
What do you feed your pigeons?

Do not let him walk around on it for now, just because he doesn't seem to show it doesn't mean he is not feeling any pain..

If it was my bird, I would soak the foot for a period of time, I would also give Arnica Montana for any blunt trauma and/or swelling.

He is the only bird.
Recently i have seen some huge rats around at night.
He eats bread, corn tortilla, maicillo (i think is "jowar" in english), rice, that's his main diet.
