    Hey guys, I finally worked up the courage to seek some guidance on my squabs journey. I found an egg one morning while completing my exercise, but it wasn’t just an egg. In the middle of the road stood a mother pigeon and an egg underneath it. As I tried to make them a new nest and move them...

    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...

    I'm at a loss. I can't get a 2nd pigeon (I'm disabled, and only managing to keep him right now because he's my registered ESA). He's a rescue from a dove release, shelters couldn't take or would euthanize, so it wasn't an impulse adoption. I feel really guilty. It's been almost a year, he's the...

    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.

    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...
