    Hi everyone, I have a single, 4 year old pet pigeon that lives indoors. He has free rein of the house and and large cage that he is only in at night or if I need to go out. No other birds or animals. He has developed what seems to be a one eye cold. His right eye is watery, red (no swelling)...

    I know pigeons should be in pairs to be happy but I don't want babies and I wanna know if two males or females will get along fine without any problems. If I get two females what do I do with the eggs? Will they lose trust if I take their eggs?

    Hi everyone. I'm in Venezuela and my neighbors started a crusade against the pigeons who came to the flower box beneath my mom's bedroom for protection. They don't like the poop but they do like the loud music from neighbors and cigarette smoke from their drug addictions. I can't do anything to...

    Hello, just wondering if there are any good books anyone can recommend on pigeon care and how to handle them? I have a few that live around me and if I ever need to try and help one again I want to be better prepared and know how to handle without hurting and things like that. Thanks for any tips.

    Hallo again! Planning on just using water from water bottles, but that can get costly. Is it safe to use fish tank water dechlorinator? Or this: https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-AvianSafe-Conditioner-4-Ounce/dp/B005DGHHSE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495214770&sr=8-1&keywords=bird+water+conditioner...

    Hi all, A couple days ago I took home a lost bird that was probably a release dove from a memorial service on campus. He/she seems to be able to fly but I have only seen him/her do so for a few feet at a time. I'm assuming this is a pigeon, can anyone confirm or know what type? Tips on...
