    Hey
    My baby dove developed this blue shade in/on his eye.
    I'm pretty certain this can cause him to go blind and i really don't want that.
    What can I do? Would it disappear?
    I think it's because he's been looking at the orange heat light that I use to keep him warm. But I've blocked it from his eye sight (well at Least I hope it's blocked) wide piece of cardboard to block the light from his eye.
    But since then, the blue shade hasn't disappeared? I think it was fading, but now I saw it increased? What can I do?
    I have no idea if the cardboard is blocking the light from his eyes, since I can't see it from the doves eye view?
    Help

    I have no idea,
    I just thought that blue shade would mean he'd have trouble seeing? Doesn't it mean that

    Young birds have different shades of eyes than old birds.

    I have no idea what the blue shade means, but I wouldn't worry about it.

    Im doubtful he is going to go blind.

    Is it both eyes or just one?

    Why why why are you still constantly trying to hand rear wild doves?!?!?!?!

    What is wrong with you? If you were in my country I would be reporting you to the animal protection people!

    I have lost count of how many you have killed now... this must be over 10 already, despite people telling you not to take doves eggs or chicks from the wild and hand rear them.

    Please stop this madness and go buy yourself a pair of adult doves from a breeder.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU
    "WATCH WHAT YOU SAY."

    Unfortunately there is nothing we can do.
    I have questioned @FrostyWind logic.
    His post at times have tempted me to express myself in a manner I am sure would only come back to have me banned from this site.
    I already had one "WARNING."
    He dreams of being "THE BIRD WHISPERER" and the "GO TO GUY"
    He will only disregard your pleas and brag about a fortunate survivor.

    Yes it is, but it's fading, which is great
