Hello, I have just signed up on here hoping that somebody can give me some advice on how to feed a baby pigeon! I found one today while I was walking down a very busy road. It had fallen out from underneath a motorway bridge, I tried to find a way to climb up to put it back on the ledge it seemed to have come off. (I walk under the bridge most days and see them up there all the time) but there was no way at all for me to get it back up there. I left it for a while and went and did the errands I had to do and thought if it was still there when I was walking back I would pick it up. Poor little thing was still sat there, huddled up against the wall with its eyes closed. I don't know it if was right to pick it up but I felt like I couldn't just leave it there. It was so close to the main road too and I didn't want it to get run over. Ive hand reared a thrush, a hedgehog and a rat in the past so I have a bit of experience with it, but I have read that pigeons are a bit more complicated than the thrush was as they need a formula making?? I have a pets a home right by my house so I can see what they have there, but have no idea really what to get!! I've only just picked it up and have put it in a cat basket with some hay and covered the basket over with a blanket and thought I would let it settle and calm down for an hour or so? Is this right? Is hay an ok bedding for a pigeon?? Its not a tiny little baby, I think it looks quite close to fledging, but still has yellow fluff covering its chest and head but has adult feathers over its wings and tail. Its small though, about half the size of an adult pigeon and still has that fat baby beak. Any advice on what to do now!!!??? I read not to give it water, is this right? I don't want it to become dehydrated, although it may already be, I cant tell how long its been away from the nest for.
