Hey guys I need help i used to be on this site a while ago but i left for some personal reasons but i never stopped my love for pigeons. Well tonight i got a call from my uncle for me to come over an it was dark but i saw this white bird in a 10 gallon aquarium an im like WTF? :confused: so he came out turned the light on an its a Tagged Homing bird so im just like :O he told me it was mine an im like but its tagged wth. Apparently the bird got confused during flight an stopped an stayed on a power line an he shot it with a bb gun i got so freaking angry with him but you cant undo something thats already done i had an idea of where the bird came from an i took it over there an the guy was an idiot he said yea its my bird but now its injured hes not gonna have the same speed as before so you can keep him. So thats the story the bird doesnt seem to be in any pain he still opens an moves his wings an hes very very tame an likes to be petted (i think) but either way he doesnt like an peck u an he just lets u do it. Ive always wanted a White Homing Pigeon but i have NOO CAGE FOR IT an what its in now has no space an no top so i need one like URGENT an i suck at building so if there anyone local to Baton Rouge, LA that can help me out id greatly a appreciate an no im not begging are anything i just really wannt keep it but i have no wood no tools no supplys and idk what im gonna go his wound will be healed soon an once he's able to fly i just dont know how its gonna be without a cage so any word of advice are anything would help me right now ty.

where was the bird shot?
its either the angle of the photo or this birds wing looks like its drooping?
If so- the wing needs to be wrapped properly or the bone will not heal correctly and the bird will not fly again

His Injury on the wing i dont think its gonna stop him from flying cus what i saw today when cleaning it he didnt have a problem getting away from me lol. How do you hold him securely when i took his band off today i didnt think he liked it cus never when i picked him up before he tried to get away from me. an plus i dont wanna hurt him an hold him where his injury is at.

Sorry to hear about the injury, just make him a nice loft and then find him or her a mate. should be the start of a wonderful relationship and hobby.

Thanks for uploading a better photo.
It looks like your bird was shot thru or near the carpal (like our wrist)
There are some pretty fine bones there that often fuse solid if they break and the bird will not be able to fly like normal.

But this may actually mean he ends up being a more friendly bird as he won't be able to evade being caught by you as easily. I'm glad your mom is putting some meds on it to help the flesh would heal more quickly.

Thanks for helping him out. Sad someone would shoot him
