Hi, I have a 2 and half yr old female pigeon. She's been laying eggs for about 2yrs and has never had a problem laying before although I did notice a couple of times she was unable to fly if about to lay an egg.
Today she is having major problems laying her 2nd egg. She laid the 1st 2 days ago with no problem. This morning I found her on the floor unable to fly or walk, she just hobbles. I've been keeping her in her nest and she has been drinking and eating. I just read that she probably needs calcium right away and I've put some powdered calcium and powdered cuttle bone in her food, she hasn't eaten that yet. Should I put a heating pad under her nest? What else could I do? I know I definitely have to change her diet from now on.
Thanks for any help and suggestions.😊
