yes Darren, pigeons do seem to heal from injuries which look bad don't they.......I had one last week cut across its chest, doesn't look bad now.

bit of baking powder on it, it was alright lol!

Great news Darren, they have a special bond with you once you’ve nursed them back.

Like nearly all fanciers I have had pigeons with varying injuries, I have stitched them up and whilst doing so they have never flinched, so I feel they do not have the same pain threshold as humans, I have always used Germaline for any broken skin etc; and some have recovered from what would appear an impossible situation but I have always gone by, if they have the guts to get back in a state I have the responsibility to give them every chance of recovery.

Regards.

Amazing little creatures in the guts department O/S I've found Smile Smile. Once had one Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes crash land on the loft with 2 broken legs from a race as such Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad. Still here in the stock loft bounce bounce never win a beauty prize thou now, walks with a stick Wink Wink & a limp etc Smile Smile but I will always appreciate his game effort in just getting home type of thing. cheers
