Real Story of saving and caring for a injured pigeon: (Our Family Member)

I rescued a pigeon at the beginning of January 2019 who was stuck in a kite string. We found the baby pigeon in the office premises. I and my colleagues took that pigeon to the nearest veterinarian and got her wounds cleaned.

The doctor said it is now very difficult for the baby bird to fly as his wing is now broken, this baby pigeon will be handicapped for life. We kept this bird in the office for one week but I noticed that due to the professional environment I am not able to take care of her. The bird was in a box most of the time.

I decided to adopt this baby bird and care for her for the rest of her life and will be her caretaker. I will be using “her” instead of “it” as I feel she is family.

Many times, her broken wounds started bleeding so I had to rush to the nearest Vet to get the wound cleaned. The doctor prescribed some medicine and antibiotics to heal the bird completely.

We prayed for her speedy recovery and day by day baby pigeon’s health improved and she got out of fear from us and started considering us as a family. Check this video for full journey till now.

At first, she went to all the rooms to familiarize every place and then became habitual to the homely environment, then after a few months, he gained the confidence to interact with us.

Then she started saying in pigeon voice “coo” “coo”. That was the best moment for all of us.

As she was recovering at a fast pace, new beautiful feathers started to grow from the broken wound (which was healed in all these months).

We have tried her to fly high but unfortunately, because of the broken wing, she can only take high burst jump from one place to another.

We as a family took care of her and tried different bird food for her. Proper hygiene was maintained around her. My mom named her “Chunnu”.

We get her checked on a regular basis. I also watch many other videos based on birds and pigeons to understand her better.

She started taking bath in the small tub we prepared for her with adequate water temperature. After a few months, this cute little bird grew up and started using her bird skills like moving fast, running like flash, powerful defensive reflexes, high jumping, etc.

Now she moves around the house freely and we don’t stop her from going anywhere because now she feels homely.

Most of the time my chunnu (pigeon bird) sits with me and doesn’t go anywhere else and keep playing with me. I make sure that her day went with entertainment. I also try new things to keep her active and energetic.

You can check the video I made from the very first incident I got this baby pigeon till the present time living like a family member. There will be times where you will see her in a cage for a short period of time that is just for her protection from the stray cats and eagles as she cannot fly or protect herself quickly. I put her in a cage after she takes bath for some sun soaking and fresh air so that he doesn’t feel traped in the house all the time and otherwise she moves freely inside. I will be making more videos of her activities in the future.
