  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi everyone! Remember my Butterfly bird, from this post? Well, she's back... although technically she didn't really go far. I set her free a couple of weeks ago, after dosing her up for a week or so with the vitamin supplement I ordered (Vetafarm Multivet with moulting aid) - she was so...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Every time we let this guy out, he flaps around in a circle and hovers above the ground for 30 seconds or so. He kinda has issues flying (he has poor lift and a drooping wing) but he's totally done it before, usually when wants to get away from me. But once I saw him fly all the way to the...

    I've heard there are bands you can put on birds after they're babies, removable temporary bands. I think my bird's about a month old now, mostly feathered, flies very well, but still young enough to where he doesn't have the fuzzy white part on the back of his beak yet ( I'm kind of ill right...

    Hello, Just as I was about to pull out from the parking lot on the way from work, I had the misfortune of witnessing a bird slam into the side of a concrete building. I went and picked up the poor pigeon and put him in a box in my car. I drove him home and he has since been there with a bowl of...

    Last night several neighbors reported on facebook that an adult pigeon was approaching them and walking into their garages - seemingly to get out of the cold. They had been feeding it and seeing it for over a week. I went and retrieved the bird last night, and its now in my garage, sleeping in a...

    I was walking back to school on my birthday, coming from a special lunch and all that jazz, when I saw a pigeon huddled up on the corner near a Starbucks. Obviously sick; puffy, half closed eyes, quick breaths, etc. I scooped the large, red pij up quickly, and ran home (screw school! My teaches...
  12. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    After a few years of a fairly prolific egg-laying cycle (usually about 2-3 wks on the eggs, then laying again 1-2 wks later), Robbie didn't lay any in December or January. Last night, she had a tiny Cadbury-Mini-Egg-sized one that is rough textured but otherwise well formed. The supplier I...

    For those of you who saw my post last night the pigeon is doing very well. I have been reading a lot of stuff on this site and had a few questions. :confused: 1) How do i know if the pigeon we rescued is wild or previously a pet. He doesn't have a tag on his leg but he is very docile and...

    Hi everyone. I just adopted a pigeon (a texan I was told) from someone who could no longer have animals. He is eating and drinking fine but he has what I'm going to call a growth on the side of his mouth(the corner) and always has some yellow slimy build up on the inside of his mouth near the...
  17. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I was walking to the pharmacy when I came across a pigeon sitting in front of a liquor store, all puffed up and alone. Pigeons are not too common in my little town. The entire time I was in the pharmacy, my mind was on that pigeon. I decided that if he was there on the way back, I'd take him...
