I don't think it's injured it's just too young to fly, I didn't think the RSPCA would come out for a pigeon?

My cat brought in a pigeon. I just took it to the local vets and see if they could do anything.

Contact them or rspca

I had a baby blackbird in my garden, I had to get it before my dog did.

At night we kept it inside in a box with towels & newspaper. I emailed RSPB as it was a saturday evening, so guess you could call them & they will advise.

In the day time, we put it back in the garden under a table for shelter, on a shoe box lid. Its mum & dad came back numerous times in the day to feed it.

This happened for 2 days, then the little bird toddled off & we never seen it again.

But this year the samething happened only it scarped in the house as soon as I opened the door!

They fall out of their nests before they can fly... Xx

Why haven't you called the RSPCA?

They are very quick to respond and know exactly what the wee thing needs. Definetaly the best option for the bird.

This is absolutely not true. To date they have failed to come out for a cat/kittnes/ a dog and some ponies when I have contacted them. Yet they still had the cheek to call me afterwards asking for money! I've given up on them.

Well I have never had this problem when I have called them so I can't comment on your situations I'm afraid.They have been brilliant round my way.

when i was at school my dad brought a baby pigeon home. I fed it and looked after it til it could fly then took it back to where it was found in Preston town centre 7 miles from our house. We left it there thinking it would be happy with all its mates...... but no. When got home it was at my bedroom window waiting to be let in, we tried afew times to leave it various places but it was always home before us. I asked a guy that had racing pigeons he said it will never leave home and they live for 8 or so years!!! We called it Heidi (never found out if it was a boy or girl) and it lived with us and 2 cats and a dog quite happily for years.
A pigeon is for life!

Is it eating it ok?

Powdered baby food mixed with egg yolk & feed it with a syringe if it cant eat bigger bits of food yet, as Their mum regurgitates there food when they are small. Usually little but often, I couldnt believe how often mum n dad blackbird came & fed baby blackbird &#128522;. It maybe past that stage if its eating properly, so if it is ignore me!
