Are you sure he was walking before? Looks awfully skinny also. Sharp keel.

Also, you need to keep this to one post. You have started a second thread, and it just gets confusing. And you deleted your other comments. Don't do that. Just keep it to one thread, and just add to it.

sure the pigeon was very healthy and the scratches in his skin caused by his trial to move after his sickness!

Leg paralysis can be from many things. Injury causing nerve damage, lack of calcium and vitamin D3, disease like salmonella/paratyphoid. Hard to know what is going on without more info.

Well usually it does take longer than that. How much calcium are you giving, and in what form? And I don't know the antibiotic you are using, but it would take longer than 5 days.

I think you should probably get him checked by an avian vet because it is hard for us to know the exact cause behind the paralysis and it's treatment.

With different antibiotics, all calcium should be removed as it will bind to the drug and make it less effective. Also, you don't want to try a bird in the drinking water. That doesn't work well, as you cannot be sure of how much he drinks, so you can't be sure that he is getting enough of the drug. He needs to be treated individually, into his mouth. So tablets are easier to use. Or you need to figure out how much of a drug the bird needs, by how much he weighs, then you need to make a suspension to feed to him. Giving it in the water is really not the answer for a sick or injured bird.
