We were having a chat at the club on marking night about injured pigeons with bad open wounds, I've got one healing at the moment that took all of its skin off on wires on the underneath of its body. I gave it a salt bath and put it in the hospital hutch with thick wood shavings so it wouldnt be laying in its own droppings as its leg was also damaged.
The debate was about ho pigeons never seem to get an infection in an open wound, and they seem to heal so quickly and perfectly.
I said I'm not sure how much pain they feel as they seem so brave, and one very experienced well respected fancier, said that pigeons are quite unique in the fact that they can shut of the pain from certain parts of their body.
I'd never heard of this before.
Have other members had pigeons with open wounds get infected, surely the human medical feturnity should be looking at a pigeons biological make up.

salt water is ideal also have iodine spray to hand with the likes of savalon they attract dust/dirt as they are wet products the iodine spray is a dry type of spray its made by savalon excellent for wounds ...that's a interesting reply from the fancier steve one I have never heard ...I wonder if theirs any truth in it

One of our cocks has a cut foot. It looks as if it has cut the main pad between its toes.

I can tell you this cock feels pain in the foot. Last night I looked at the bird's foot after bathing it in TCP all week. It had a bit stuck to the underside of the foot that I thought at first was droppings, but when I tried to remove it, the pigeon jumped! Obviously with pain.

I will try some Iodine in a small spray bottle as the TCP does not seem to be healing the foot so well.

All the best with your bird Boosey.

probably hardened skin phil I have seen it on one of my cocks and thought the same but it is actually attached ...the cut probably goes through that area so not clear to see
