    Hey guys
    I found this grey pigeon in the yard. He/ she was a little closer to me than domestic pigeons normally get . went closer tried to get away but couldn't flu. The legs r fine as it tried to run occasionally tumbling. i caught her or him and put it in the coop. I have no chickens so she will be ok there. I noticed while looking at it this. Do you know how after extending its wind a bird pulls it in close to it body almost as if its apart of it. i noticed whit its left wing it want quite positioned correctly it was a little off.

    What can i do to fix it. i will take care of it as long as i can for her or jim to get better . What can be done ?

    i would suggest to get a pic of the bird to help others see what is wrong. it sounds like it could be broken or not working the wing muscles correctly-strained them possibly?

    Yes, if you can bahamas please try to take a photo and then maybe we can figure out if the wing can be fixed.

    In the meantime make sure the pigeon has access to food + water... I'm sure you must be feeding the bird but I didn't see a mention of it in your post. [​IMG]
