I spent my afternoon in the hospital ward, cleaning out and helping to administer medication.
After moving out the birds, I cleaned the cage and put down clean newspaper, food and water. If the bird was showing signs of foot problems, I placed down a puppy pad on top.
A few had been admitted for broken wings, so I felt a pigeon’s wing to feel the break. Holding the pigeon under my arm, I lifted its neck and gave it 2 drops of metacam which is a pain reliever and anti inflammatory.
