Regarding Apple, can she get off the ground at all, or does she just walk and hop all the time? I imagine her cage\nest would be closer to the ground, maybe with steps so she could hop up to and down from it? Once I'm ready, I wouldn't mind taking on a pigeon or dove like Apple, I think.
Glad to hear that you like the idea.

Apple walks a lot, runs, jumps and is able to make "small flights". I mean that she can jump, for example, from the floor to the table. When she wants to go somewhere she studies a "map": once she wanted to go on a dresser so she jumped from the floor to the table, then from the table to the dresser.

Yes, her nest is closer to the floor. She doesn't need steps. You also have to leave available bowls of food and water.

If you opt for a pigeon like Apple I will explain you everything.

As the poor Bruna was chased from her home by Caterina and her husband Ben (they moved there) I handmade a new house for her. I just have to find a good place where to put it because she has a backward foot and so needs a handy place.

Lol I think my pigeons are going to build a new city... Pigeonville 🤣. If someone is interested, there are plots for sale!!!

Very cute, but I would not let them take her place from her. They get very attached to their home. I would give them the new one, and keep them out of hers.

Thanks so much for the good suggestion, Jay. Yes, the poor Bruna was really attached to her old home.

When they will stop sitting on their eggs I will try to "convince" them to move to the new house. The problem is that Caterina is a very determined and stubborn pigeon...
In the meanwhile I found a good place for the new home, I saw more than once Bruna inside it but this morning I often saw her in the area of her old home (they chased her, of course...). Anyway, we'll see..

Update: Bruna lived for a while in the second house I made. She moved to a new nest (a common fruits crate) after she got married. Btw the marriage didn't work and now she has a new boyfriend (lol, I know, it's like a soap opera 😅 ) .

The handmade house has new owners: my broken wing pigeon Apple and her husband Marshall. You can see Apple in the pic!

Why did Bruna's marriage not work out?

Looks like it's reading the newspaper - albeit upside-down. WOW a pigeon that can read upside-down! Not many humans can!

Bruna loves walking and flying around the room but her previous husband wanted her always in the nest (even when they did not have eggs) or on the floor under the storage shelf. Each time he saw her around the room (walking, eating, etc) he hit her and she had to come back to the nest or to the floor. She tried to react hitting him too...
She is an active and lively pigeon but during her marriage she was sad and passive (each time I hand feed my blind pigeon Geordi she comes to his bowl because she loves eating from it... Well, she stopped to come...), I also noticed that her poops looked bad. So I decided to separate them for a few days (the poor Bruna had a hard life when she lived outside: she ate rat poison and had a bad canker too.. She is also a disabled pigeon because she has a backward foot)...well, she immediately felt better and found a new boyfriend...

The handmade house has new owners: my broken wing pigeon Apple and her husband Marshall. You can see Apple in the pic!

As my pigeon Bruna has a backward foot I got the idea to "create" a box with a disabled access: you can see it in the pics (I cut the plastic box - a common fruits crate - with scissors then file it with sandpaper). This way she can easily get in and out. It seems to work well, I hope she likes it.

I thought to share it because someone else could maybe find the idea helpful 😊.
