Thank-you for you kind words everyone! Wasn't sure if the 'parrot people ' would be too interested in a feral pigeon, but your interest and compassion has shone through :-)

I have F10 liquid soap & F10 hand sanitiser I use after dealing with the bird.
I always have a shower after contact & change my clothes too!
So there shouldn't be risk to Bella and Dexter.
Though I am keeping an extra special eye on them in the meantime & they will be going to the vets at the end of the month for a gram stain at minimum.

I will post photos of the pigeons progress (hopefully if all goes to plan)

Thanks guys :-)

Re: Helping Injured Pigeon - Graphic Photos

What a wonderful rescue and rehabilitation you are accomplishing! The world needs more attentive and caring souls as you!

Thanks for creating this thread, many of us care deeply about the wild and woolly natural world of avians.

Re: Helping Injured Pigeon - Graphic Photos

Pigeons are also very intelligent and resilient. I rescued one years ago, wildlife services didn't come to take hi or her so I tried. Had a broken wing that fell off ultimately. He or she was finally placed in a wildlife reserve.

Thank you, I'll keep following. Love your compassion!

Re: Helping Injured Pigeon - Graphic Photos

I hope the pigeon is still doing ok? Do you intend to release it back to the wild or is the foot damaged enough it'll be joining your flock?

Re: Helping Injured Pigeon - Graphic Photos

UPDATE:
After some cleaning & application of Vaseline & wrapping,
Then cleaning & application of Germolene & wrapping,
We have some progress!

Underside of the foot is looking much nicer


Though when at rest, two of the toes fold under the foot still


The topside of the foot has also improved, though still looks rather crazy


Ontop of this, I've now found that the little guy has tapeworm, so I'm treating for this at present with fingers crossed they have enough fight in them to recover, they need as much sustenance as possible!

Re: Helping Injured Pigeon - Graphic Photos

Her foot looks better. That's a shame she has worms. Hopefully that can be treated too. I think that's so sweet you got her in a little cast/brace to help her foot

Re: Helping Injured Pigeon - Graphic Photos

You're doing something amazing for this bird. Thanks to you the foot is looking so much better. I'm sure even though it is wild, he knows you're trying to help. I assume it's natural for wild creatures living outdoors to have worms. With the right meds, they should be eradicated soon.
