I am almost convinced my pigeons parents are both dead. How can I feed it?
it should be weaned by now, put some bird seed out for it
It still has very stubby feathers tho. And its crop is full from its mother today. But after a flight she never came back. The dad came up missing to. I think its a hawk. I will add pictures.
Its about a inch littler that a normal sized bird.
That baby is not 5 weeks old.If you have chickens and feed them flock raiser or something similar,you can soak it in water to make a paste and feed it that through a syringe,but you will have to cut the tip off the syringe.
I have chick starter and scratch grain. I also have baby animal milk. Could I use that with some water and add the starter?
Quote:I would just use the chick starter mixed with water,be prepared it is going to make a mess.And only feed it when the crop is empty from the last feeding.
Well this little suckers crop is HUGE from his mom. Its a shame something happened to her. Hopefully i'll find her in the morning. But thanks a lot. I really needed this information.
When I used chicken food and water i noticed the pigeon was smaller. It is a good idea to warm it up in the microwave this way it can't expand in the stomach or crop.When it gets older put a few small seeds in for it.
Well guess what!? The mom is alive! We had a very bad storm yesterday and i'd say she tried to stay dry and keep out of it. I think thats why she was gone. But now shes back. Thank goodness! Thanks anyway guys!
