|Subject: baby pigeon is odd !! Tue Jul 31, 2012 11:13 am|| |
Hello im new to this forum...as i found a baby pigeon 7 days ago. He was in a nest on my roof i suspect and i found him on the path below.I picked him up and put him in a cat basket, fed him defrosted peas n corn..all was well with his poo..white and green soft and frormed if you know what i mean?From day one i noticed he leans to the side , where his wing is held higher and his head also goes a tad to this side, when i set him down he rolls to this side and his tail almost turns to counterbalance him, the same side.He does flap both wings and trys to fly.
I took him to a vet he said its fine , he is just a baby, now im worried he has something wrong ..as ive just spent the last 3 hours reading threads on this forum. His poo is now watery ..sometimes smelly..sometimes semi soft. The biggest problem is that i live in Cyprus, not a lot of vets will treat birds especially Pigeons !!. Does anyone have any idea of what his problem is ?? He is eating well, but wont drink from a bowl, so i place the peas in water for him to peck. i guess he is about 15-20 days old .

How is the baby doing now? Is his poop still softer than it should be? If you have a chance, please post photos of the baby and the poops, also when you say you put the peas in water, are those dried peas or defrosted peas?
Thank you for looking after that baby, I hope you're both well.
