I'm not 100% sure I'm right
But this site started as a Pigeon chat room 6-7-8 years ago.

Well, for whatever reason it started - I for one, am gald it's here! I only wish I knew it existed 4 years ago when I rescued my male pij Chance. I had to learn to care for him the hard way - by trial and error. Not to mention that it was during a dire emergency with me trying to save his life. Sometimes I think the only reason he survived was because I have been a parrot owner of birds with medical issues for so lmany years and knew basic life-saving bird tips as well as first aid and also have a good sense of common sense. For newbie Pij owners like myself, expecially in emergencies, this site is a god-send. I've only been here a few days but already know that there's not only a wealth of information contained in these forums, the current discussions and the archives, but also because the people on this board are helpful, knowledgeable caring and passionate about the birds they keep. That makes all the world of difference. Not many non-bird owners understand a person's passion for his/her flock and/or other birds in their care. So it's nice to be able to access this as a resource and to chat as well as share information with other "Bird People" of the same mind-set.

Pigeon Talk was not a chat room, but was started as a web site devoted to pigeons and pigeon interests back in 2000.

It was founded and run by Carl Gulledge (Bigbird), from the State of Washington, with Carl Jr (Googull) as the technical man. It was Carl's dream to have a pro-pigeon site that was populated by pigeon loving people to share their knowledge of and love for pigeons.

Carl Sr. sold the site to Keebali Media in 2008.

Keebali has acquired several discussion type sites, covering various interests, as a business venture.

Thanks John----
Did Pigeon.Biz ever have a chat room??
I'm sure when I joined as Sky-Tx it was a Pigeon Chat room and was very active.
I was gone for a while--but got a note that Pigeon Biz was active and logged on again--after I found my notes with what info I needed.
Wow it was still on the internet.

Yes I'm pretty sure PT used to have a chat room but they got rid of it.

Yep, there was for a while, but there just was not a lot of interest after the first few weeks. It wasn't run by PT itself, but we had a link to the chatroom facility:

Pigeon-Life Chatting

Chat facilities here on Pigeon-Life are linked via Gabbly which is an unrelated third party chat service.
