    Ok so I have 2 pigeons. Both are from the same nest... (I hand raised them do to a raccoon killing the rest of the flock an only the babies was left...They are also now house birds) anyway I put some new perches in their cage as of yesterday. And tonight my oldest one is picking on the youngest...

    First pigeon was adopted from a local shelter and we were informed he had a racing background. We wanted to get him a mate and brought him in for a couple of visits with pigeons that would be brought into the bird hospital. The vet I coordinated with thought these candidates were female, but had...

    So I posted once here before about my ring neck needing a mate, Well we got him one, she’s got her own cage and we’ve had her for close to a month, she’s about 4-5 months old now and we’ve gotten her a nest and she’s starting to mess around with it and move parts of the pre made nest around for...

    Hi! So, I've had my Ana for about 9 months. She arrived to me about one year old and wasn't tame. Now, she's an angel (most of the time...) who loves to do target training, get head scratches, sit on my arm, eat from my hand and just kinda sit and hang out around me. The issue is, sometimes...

    My very sweet female pigeon Avris has become suddenly aggressive towards me about both my phone and computer. I hand raised her and she’s about 4-5 months old now, so maybe she’s also just being hormonal? Anyways, all her life we used to “share” the phone and computer. She used to love laying...

    Hi all, I've spoken before about this pigeon being aggressive with the single female I had, and he accidentally killed her a few days after her eggs hatched (or I hope accidentally, he did seem quite sad after). Well I've been putting the two young pigeons that hatched at the start of summer...

    I have a small pigeon coop (kit box style) with 5 white homers. They are just kept as pets and for flying (as I love seeing the white birds flying in the sky around my home). I am having a big problem with the dominant male bird seriously bullying the other birds to the point he in constantly...

    I bought 5 frillbacks a few months ago. I'm a bit puzzled by their behaviour and I'd like some guesses/opinions on what is going on here! In the loft are 4 nest boxes with a nest-front-gated shelf each (like racers use), 2 really big open-plan shelves and 3 v-perches. In addition to the...

    Hi everyone! I've had my ringneck dove Clementine for about 3 years now. I always had the intention to get her a companion but whenever I looked online, there were hardly ever any singles up for adoption in my area. Since I've been busier than usual lately and I'm afraid of her getting lonely...

    So, around August I obtained a 2 week old racer squab who we named Marble. I was hoping for a girl, my last pigeon was male (poor boy died of cancer too soon), and I really didn't want to have to worry too much about the aggression a male pigeon displayed. Low and behold, Marble is currently a...

    Hey guys, I posted here a while back that I had adopted a female ringneck dove. She was kept alone for many years at her previous home, but it became obvious once I had her that she was lonely. Between her cooing, trying to be friends with my budgies, and what I read here about doves, I...

    Hello, I am new to pigeon ownership and could really use some advice. Quick backstory: I ended up with an unreleasable, feral male (I think) pigeon about three months ago and just got him a female (so I am told) king pigeon as a companion. I let my feral pigeon out on the patio daily and he...

    I have a rescue pigeon (Birmingham roller) that was surrendered and has been with the rescuer for 2 years as nobody wanted him. He is either aggressive or just loves to play rough. The previous carer did say 'he loves a wrestle' so I am figuring this behaviour is now entrenched in PerCy and is...

    Hello! A few months ago I had a male Diamond dove, Sir.CoosALot. He was very noisy and on the advice of Tailfeathers, I got him a cute girlfriend. I introduced them slowly, they got on beautifully! On Christmas day she laid an egg, [ then another after. ] After laying, they ignored the eggs...

    Hi I recently (last January) rescued an adult pigeon with a broken wing. It healed successfully with veterinary help however the pigeon (Tornado) cannot fly. That is fine, he lives with me and my other doves and seems happy otherwise. My issue is that just recently (as his wing still droops a...

    I've been getting to know my two new pigeons by speaking to them or singing through the bars of their cage. I am not sure of the sex of either of them, though I suspect at least one (the older one) is male. I'm getting them DNA'd next week. This evening I was singing a song with a lot of "oo"...

    My pet pigeon has been acting increasingly aggressive. I'm not sure what to do. I think that he started doing this because he was jealous of my phone. He would come over and peck the phone and my hands whenever I messed with my phone, instead of paying attention to him. He started getting more...

    My zebra dove has been aggressive towards me, not my husband and not my son, just me. I nursed him from a one week old, featherless, baby. He/She likes to peck on me and chases my feet when walking around. He also makes odd noises and flaring of his/her wings. I have tried to look up why this...

    I got a pigeon from a local bird store by happenstance, I was there to buy supplies for my parrot and on the counter at check out there was a sign that read "free pigeon needs to be hand fed". Turns out the baby accidentally got mixed in with the adult pigeons and they won't keep and raise...
  20. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello everyone, I had a question. So my dove, which I know is a male has this territorial aggression problem and I was wondering if there's anyway to fix that. Would I have to stay near his cage for him to get used to me? Feed him by hand? Anything like that? He's okay in other places around the...
