Hi there, I recently rescued a young pigeon that was brought into my animal hospital about 2 months ago. She was fairly young when she first came in, but very healthy. I tube fed her for only a day in a half as she started eating on her own quickly and gaining weight. She became very social quickly as she was constantly around people and being handled or sitting on someones shoulder. Once i finished my outdoor aviary for her, I was finally able to bring her home. I can only guess, but i thinking shes only about 2 months now. Only has a few little yellow baby hairs poking out of her chest. Still peeps a lot and does the cute little shimmy with her wings whenever I come around. She never wing slaps me but more just walks away from when she doesn't want to be bothered. A few harmless pecks too. I recently bought a harness for her and put it on her, but it turned into a disaster. I seemed to fit just perfectly.. not too snug but she just HATED it. She wouldn't move and when she tried to climb the top of the couch she took a tumble back down to the seat of the couch. I decided to take it off of her because she seemed miserable. Well that was a catastrophe in itself. She fought me all the way. I was trying me best to be so careful so she wouldn't hurt herself. I finally got it off and put her back in her aviary and every since then (it's been 2 days), she HATES ME. I kinda don't blame her. She aggressively pecks me, wing slaps me, peeps really loud at me and runs. I feel absolutely terrible. I offer her treats to make amends, but I mostly just leave her alone. I have only been visiting her 3 times a day, morning and night for feeding and once in the day when i come home for lunch, just to say hi. No touching, just softly talking to her. I am not sure what else to do and am curious if our relationship can be repaired. I'm hoping its just time that we need. I need a pigeon psychologist. Do you have any thoughts or ideas on this matter? Thank you in advance.
