    Advice on how/when to release a rehabilitated bird Hi everyone! Four months ago, in November, I found a pigeon infected with paramyxovirus that couldn’t fly. We were lucky enough that he could feed on his own from the begining, but only on small seeds. He would pick up corn and sunflower seeds...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Okay so. I don't have specific dates yet, but I know that sometime in late February/March I need to take a school-related trip somewhere that's about 7 hours away. I don't have any local friends [a tragic story], so I have no one to take care of Eleanor, and I'm sure she'd miss me too much...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A lost pigeon has been hanging around my grandpa's house since July, coming and going every week. He has a little band around his leg and we were able to figure out what it said and track down his owner. My grandpa called him and the guy said he didn't want the pigeon, he doesn't do pigeon stuff...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So I'm looking into getting doves. I have my heart set on getting a pair of female ring-neck doves. It will have to wait a bit until I move into my new place but I figure that just gives me time to prepare. (#1) My biggest question is regarding eggs. I have been trying to find information but...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hallo! I'm planning on adopting a Ringneck Dove soon, and I've got what I need as far as information on housing, hygiene, etc. but I was wondering if it would be ok to just simply get a lone Ringneck Dove? I don't have the money to own to of them, and I just wanted to know if owning a lone...

    I just need a list of what I need to own a Ringneck dove. I'm getting really confused because many different sites each show that doves need something different than the last. Preferably not the most expensive things out there. Thanks in advance, Taubee :o
  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi all, a few weeks ago my neighbour came round with a baby pigeon in a box which she had found by the side of the road. It was there on her way to work squarking and making a right racket and 4 hours later it was still there but looked like it had given up (it was also a scorching hot day) so...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I've recently found and taken in what we suspect to be a King Pigeon. He was walking around near our house and when we took him to animal control he said he was a homing pigeon and that he'd likely find his way home if we provided some food and shelter. We set him up near an abandoned...

I live in West Hollywood and have a pair of doves that have successfully raised over 20 chicks with only the occasional mishap or unfertilized egg.

    I'm looking into getting a pet pigeon as an emotional support animal. As such, the bird would come with me everywhere. I was wondering if a pigeon could be trained to stay quiet in class, and ride somewhere on my person (ex: in large sweatshirt pocket, on shoulder, etc.). I found pigeon pants...
  13. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi there – I’m based in the UK and was brought a young fledgling pigeon by a couple of kind kids that had found it. (It probably should have been left as its parents were likely to have been near by, but the children were worried about it as the garden it was in had cats) Anyway, I ended up with...

    About a week ago my mother came across a Pigeon with a badly broken wing. Good news is she's a vet. Bad news is she's a vet for horses. So we brought him home, named him Phillipe, and stuck him in a friends extra dove cage. He's eating and drinking but he's lost a bit of weight. It's cold at...
