  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all, I haven't posted much since I joined the forums because Cosmo (white Ringneck Dove) and I have been doing so well. I wanted to add some recent photos but Cosmo has gotten good at avoiding the paparazzi but he's is looking great. I do have a few concerns. He still doesn't like to be...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi all, I've posted about my current feral resident, Persephone, in the sick/injured forum. She has responded well to antibiotics and is a lively and lovely wee thing. I have noticed that she isn't really trying to fly, which I'm finding a bit odd. The previous baby I had of a similar age was...

    Curious of what age a squab is when its eyes open and when it starts to walk. Also, when are they able to find and eat their own food/drink water? My little one is about a week old now. Not in a hurry, just interested in their development. Another nest with egg with another pair. so more to...

    I was given this white utility king pigeon last week. Wasn't banded or anything. I was wondering approximately how old it is? It's hard to tell exactly but it seems like pretty young (maybe a few months?)
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I've been looking for a pair of pigeons to adopt and tame as indoor pets. There are many to choose from where I am, of various ages. Currently the ones I'm most interested in are 2015 birds, is this too old to think of taming them? I'm pretty sure they're in a loft right now. I'm not sure how...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi folks, I posted in another thread about some orphan pigeon babies I've ended up taking care of. I've had them for 2 days now - they're pretty used to their life now it seems. Can you help me figure out their ages? I'm attaching a few pictures of them. Also, I'm having a hard time figuring...

    Normally when we go to buy the pigeon in the market the chicks are available at low price but unable to identify their gender, How many ways we can find out their genders, by touching them at the age of 1 to 1.5 months, and majority of chicks that are available, they are siblings of the same...

    I bought a pair of pet pigeons on January 12th. They bred that night. It has been fourteen full days and still no sign of eggs, and I'm starting to get worried. I have been trying to figure out how long is normal between breeding and egg-laying. I have heard as little as six days and as much as...

  12. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Is there a recommended age range for mates in ringneck doves? Or more specifically, I found someone who is willing to sell me a dove who is around 1 to 1.5 years of age, and my dove is somewhere between 6 and 9 months old. Would they make suitable mates? Is there anything I should look out for...

    The Vet said somewhere around 3 months, friends are saying older (some much older..). Abandoned in a park in Manhattan, no band. Best guess a Jacobin or Capuchine, or maybe an "oops" baby that's a mix...

    Hello guyz, I'm a starter, had purchased one female pigeon for my daughter (around 2 years old) so she may play with her. Currently, after around a month the situation is this that Pommy(our pigeon) keeps on hitting my wife and daughter when they come near. She is good with me and eats from my...
  15. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello, I am a 17 year old student in the west suburbs of Chicago and have had a pigeon loft for about six years. I started with a few Nevek show birds and added some tipplers/roller mixes later on. I do not race, I only raise them as a hobby. I let them out to fly every day during the summer and...

    I have a 16 year old ringneck dove as my pet for the past 16 years. I would like to get her another cage mate. All her cage mates have passed due to old age throughout the years. She has been single in her cage now for roughly 3 years. Should I attempt to buy her another cage mate? I'm not...

    Hey everybody! I JUST joined this forum. I have a parakeet and knew about these kinds of forums from joining one for him when I got him. 4 days ago, right after a mean storm, I found a hatchling, dead in my driveway. The next morning I found another one. It was barely breathing and part of the...
