A guy Dad knows at work found a young pigeon and took it home and let it loose. Then he told my Dad, since he knew that I was into pigeons, and asked if we could take it, since he seems to not be able to care for himself yet.

Here are some pics:

I was wondering if I should treat it for anything?

What an adorable little squeaker. I'm so glad you have him.
I would keep him separated from your other birds for 30 days. During that time, you will have the opportunity to observe him, see how well he is eating, what his poops look like and such.
I treat all my squeakers for canker and when they are completely weaned, I treat for coccidia and I worm them.
This one looks good. Unfortunately, you can't always tell by just looking.


Great save, PigeonKid.

Your lovely new baby looks pretty healthy. But, as Charis said, he's best kept in quarentine and under observation. I've medicated my new squeaker for canker, and after that I wormed her with Ivermectin (today -- second dose in 12 days' time). Next week I'll treat her for coccidia, to fit in between the two worming doses.
Best wishes for you both!
