    Does a pigeons broken wing heal ?


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    I have a very docile pigeon in my shed tonight.
    I think it has a broken wing. He flaps, but he falls. Its wrapped up in a towel, in a shoebox, with some seed and water. He's a lovely creature, quite happy to have his head stroked, no fear in him whatsoever. But I'm at a bit of a loss what to do with the fella.

    Any suggestions most welcome.

    I'd phone the RSPCA as soon as you can. They will treat the pigeon.

    Similar thing happened to me with a baby seagull. I called the RSPCA who gave me the details of a local vet I could drop the bird off at. If my memory serves me correctly they gave me a code/reference number which the vets could use to get payment from the RSPCA. I also think the RSPCA phoned them in advance to forewarn them. Bottom line is the RSPCA arranged everything, all I did was drop the bird off.

    The vets called me in the morning to tell me the seagull was simply suffering from exhaustion (quite common with baby seasgulls and hot weather apparently) and after some rest they dropped it off at a sanctuary who later released it.

    The RSPCA will deal with it (most likely by putting it down ).

    there is a chap in woodingdean who takes all injured birds and gets them back to full health. His name is Roger and he lives in Downs valley road.

    If it's a ringed pigeon, then it will probably be put down as it will be no good for racing.

    If it's not a ringed pigeon, then it will probably be put down as it is nothing more than a flying rat.

    Either way, welcome to the pigeon afterlife. It won't be missed, let's be honest.
    OTMAPP. Don't like it? **** off and die.

    I broke a wing off a seagull once, rubbed it on my wart, and nothing happened. So I'd say a broken seagull's wing is particularly naff at healing.
    Nope.
