I have a month old baby pigeon who is currently being weaned onto corn and peas.
Woke up this morning to him/her erratically hobbling about their cage, falling forward rather agressively.
They had a sibling that ended up passing early on due to unknown complications, I suspected internal pox, as both birds have pox in the dry and wet form.
Current baby has wet pox on left side of mouth that has obstructed his ability to eat well, though I have been making due with thawed frozen corn and peas.
Droppings are a dark watery/pasty green. Will apply pictures. Baby has gone droopy overnight.

How much are you feeding him? Is the crop emptying well inbetween feedings? He might have secondary infections like canker or yeast. Have you checked for any unusual growths inside the beak and back of the throat? Use a flashlight to check. Is he drinking water by himself?
