The baby will need to be kept away from damp and draughts. While he is young he will need bedding that will stop his feet from sliding under him as this could cause the legs to splay out rather than grow in the correct position. White kitchen towel is good because it will enable you to see the quantity and colour of his poops. It will need to be changed regularly (two or three times a day). Other good alternatives are a dry facecloth or a piece of dry toweling.
Don't use woodchip or anything else that the baby might eat. Although woodchip is a good bedding material a baby woodpigeon at a sanctuary once managed to eat his bedding during the night. The surgery required to have the stuff removed from his crop earned him his name of "Sixty Quid".
While he is under 10 days old the baby can be kept in a high sided box but as he grows older he will need to to be able to stretch his wings out and exercise them.
If a hand raised baby is going to be released it is better to take him to a sanctuary where he will be able to mix with other pigeons, learn from them and be released in the relative safety of a "mini flock"
