I rescued a baby pigeon about 3 days ago and have been feeding and caring for him/her without issues. He/She seems to have a great appetite and poops seem to be normal. We've named him/her Peeps
Getting ready for our feeding i noticed a large lump on Peep's chest/side underneath the right wing
I didn't notice it yesterday but wondered if I just missed it before.
It doesn't seem to bother him/her and certainly has not affected the appetite!
It appears to be air or fluid filled and stick out quite a bit compared to the other side.
Air filled doesn't make sense to me, but it does not appear to have liquid inside.
it sounds hollow when you rub it, like a balloon - I know it sounds weird, but that's the best I can do to describe it.I didn't know if this was a normal occurrence or if I should take the baby to an animal rescue facility.
Here are some pictures
The normal side LEFT under wing
The abnormal side RIGHT under wing
Please help - I would love to keep and care for Peeps - but am not opposed to giving Him or Her up to a rescue facility if they can provide Peeps with treatment if needed.
If you can point me in the right direction it would be very appreciated!
