    Dear All,

    I kept one of my 45 days old squab with another pair because parents of that squab are feeding another hatchling.

    That pair has beaten squab a lot that his eye lashes are Red, I took the squab out. Is it fair enough for any pigeon pair to beat another squab, also how much time it will take to cure for red eye lashes or do I need to take him to Vet

    Thanks

    In the wild pigeon and dove squabs don't stay in the nest when they are a month old. If the parents want to reuse the nest the chick is still in there then the parents resort to pecking even if the chick is bleeding. Domesticed pigeons and doves do the same, its a thing bound to happen to fledge squab.
    Yes try to take care of the lashes or eyes because it can get infected and become blind or anywhere around that area can also get infected.
