this wild pigeon has a bad foot i think
i attached a picture
it could not fly away so i brought it in

any idea whats wrong with its foot?
pigeon hops around on its good foot, wont make steps with its bad foot

will its foot improve on its own with rest?
or do i have to get help to fix it?

It may be bruised or been caught up somewhere cannot really say whether it will heal or not by itself

 

George no ring on it by the looks

I am not sure it is the foot.

The injury may be higher up. 

Pigeons heal well but it means you will have to care for it for a few weeks.

 

I am good! They aren't firing rubber bullets at me. Yet.

As Murray says it could be higher up the leg. The best way for you to care for it is to put it on a deep bed of straw. It should heel itself in a couple of weeks. If it doesn’t the problem could be more serious.
