I started out with young feral - first pigeon, and I didn't have any commonsense when it came to raising pigeons. My only bird knowledge came from owning and raising a companion Quaker parrot for the past 10 years. I thought I knew what I was doing.... NOT..... I have found all of the foods I had originally fed to Mildred was all wrong, even if she did eat it. I thought wild pigeon eat whatever they could find, so cooked meat, cooked rice and bread was all okay. Well it looked like Mildred had survived the wrong diet and was doing good until yesterday. I had started her on just seeds and pigeon crumbs a little over a week ago and she was struggling with getting the hang of eating hard seeds, but eating. Well, it looks like today while I'm at work, my husband is going to get with vet and see about getting antibiotics for Mildred since she may have bacterial infection from my stupid help. I hope that is all that is wrong. I will keep you updated with the progress. I say progress in a positive way. Thanks for all the support.
