I rescued Kevin from a hawk-attack in my backyard. When I took Kevin in, he had a broken wing and a bloody beak.
For feeding and water, we stuck with generic bird food and distilled water. He pecked through the food and only ate yellow and brown seeds.
Pigeons are not for the lazy!! You must clean their cage everyday, depending on how messy they are, because their feces will stink. You will need to change out their water everyday as well.
He liked to be held and because he couldn't fly, we were able to take him outside for days in the sun. Once his wing healed, after about 6 months, we released him back into the wild. He was a great addition to out home, but was a lot of work. Not for a family with no time available.
