    You could try hand raising him Exact works good or chicken food and water heated up in the microwave. Nearly all of my hand raising attempts were unsusesful only 1 baby pigeon lived the others died.

    As far as the finger goes the parent puts their beak in the Baby Pigeons beak and regurgatate Pigeon milk into the beak

    I would put him in a cage with the father. Or just leave him in the nest. Dad should continue feeding him, and you can go in there and help so it isn't such a strain on him.
