    Hi there, I know this is a chicken website but I really need help with with a pigeon.. My friend found a pigeon on the floor in her garden that couldn't fly, it seems perfectly healthy and very alert. It's even eating! Need help to determine if it's sick though and what to do. Thanks for your help x

    Hope you get help with your pigeon. Is it a very young one that may have fallen from a nest?
