found bird

My friend found a white homing pigeon, I guess that's what it is & she has it in a small cage for a week now. She is looking for advice on how to care for it. any advice.

Honestly, if there's nothing wrong with it, I would never have captured it in the first place. If something is wrong with it I would contact the Wildlife Control and let them handle it and give it the proper care until it can be relaesed back into the wild.

If your friend is determined to keep the bird, she can read up on feeding it here.

But - I would strongly recommend releasing it as it is probably someones pet and as a homing pigeon it will come & go at will.

Homing pigeons require a lot of care. If you want it super healthy, give it daily doses of revital tablets and antibiotics. They usually eat grain, and will sometimes eat bread.
