Ring neck dove in tonight

Very listless, is eating but very quiet. Both legs seem, to me, very red. Any thoughts?

we've got one that drops in and I feed it any grains that I'm holding
I'll try to see what its leg colour is, for a comparison

hopefully its okay?!

Hi Kracka..... this dove's legs are not normal... they are both swollen up and it has trouble standing. They are a bit better but still not good.
I've been bathing them in colloidal silver and then rubbing in aloe vera..... I think it is a bit better but I'm thinking it might be an old dove. The feathers aren't good and she sort of looks old... probably a bit like how I feel at present :D

oh dear! well at least you're giving it the best chance
that colloidal silver has a good reputation - I'm hoping so, I'm spraying my now infected skin grafted hand :( (think its getting better)

I love aloe vera it's great stuff it will be brilliant for your hand kracka as well as for the dove.
I'm always getting cut up by something and have a fast healing rate, i think though the use of the aloe vera gel.
I picked up a good gel 97% aloe from RD1 It's called Merino and was only $14.60 for 250ml.Take care of that hand kracka and Gillyj good luck with the dove, they do live very long lives so she could be 10yrs or more old,i lost one of mine last year and i'm sure i've had them since ''96 they are a hardy bird.
