  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello! My girl Oona was rescued by me in 2009, so I'm not sure exactly how old she is. I keep her ion a large indoor cage with her partner, and last week I noticed she stopped flying around and perching. A couple days later she wasn't leaving the cage floor, just shuffling around using her wings...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello! Someone please, I need an urgent advice. I found a common wood pigeon unable to fly, no apparent injuries. The vet will examine her to see what is wrong, but I need help with the feeding! She is with me since last Friday, and since then I browsed and watched a lot of videos on how to hand...

    I have an adult PMV rescue. I've had her/him for about seven months. When she was very sick she was very cuddly and loved to stretch out in my hand. Now she bites. It is not a mere peck it is a hold and squeeze as hard as possible. I've tried lots of different ways of cuddling her to break...

    On Sunday I took in an adult pigeon, the moment I picked her up she vomited clear liquid... got her home and examined her (see attachments). There's this large, sticking out yellow lump on her upper crop. It's very hard. I thought canker? Someone else suggested canker but also a rupture with...

    Hi! :) On Wednesday I caught a pigeon with a really bad string feet injury, that is all well for now-- the string has been removed, he's on antibiotics, cream for his feet, "shoes" etc. What is worrying me is that he's not eating. He is an adult pigeon and was eating fine outside... but after...
  8. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Am searching for a friend for our two year old Fiona, who is lonely and egg obsessed. Have two other girls in another cage who are very happy together. Fiona picked on them because they are small. She is good sized. Looks not as important as compatibility with another female. Great living setup...

    Hi everyone, I have an adult disabled pigeon who can't eat or drink on his own. Currently I feed him 30ml of Hagen hand-feeding formula 3x per day, is this enough or should it be increased? He is around 450g. :) Thanks!

    Hello. This is my first time posting on Pigeon Talk. ;) So, roughly two days ago I managed to capture a pigeon in down town behind a restaurant. He/she [after this I'll just be saying 'he' for the sake of simplicity] has spent the last three days with me in my home, he likes to sit in front...

  13. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I found a pigeon in an alleyway here, not visibly ill except that it did not try to fly away and seems off-balance. It looks well-nourished but I had no trouble catching it with minimal effort. Since catching it, it hasn't made even the slightest effort to resist or esacpe. It had been...

    I have a feral pigeon with a broken wing that I took into my parrot aviary a couple years ago. He is doing well but I think he'd like pigeon company. He displays for the parrots but they are not interested in anything he does. I'd like to find a hen who is also flightless to keep him company...

  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I normally rescue the young pigeons who fall out of their nests from under the beach pier I visit regularly (I'm up to about a dozen over 3 years). This time it's a fully grown adult. It has healing obvious on his back which looks well healed (I suspect an attack from a seagull). Also possibly...
