  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a young pigeon that is a little over a month old. She (or he) is a bit peckish and bites us all the time. She doesn't seem to tame, and even the offer of food doesn't help. She keeps inside of her cage all the time, and won't come out on her own. When she is taken out her only focus is...

    My female dove Afonso is 10 years old, she has been with me since i bought her when she was still a little baby. She doesn't have a male and yes she is a female (laid eggs multiple times). She is very attached to me but she doesn't like my brother. She bites him hard in the eyes, nose and ears...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, here's the deal. A little over five years ago, I adopted (rescued, really) what I thought was a female white ringneck dove from a horrible little pet shop in the middle of nowhere, and named her Ava. She'd been kept in a cage so small that she didn't know how to use her wings, and she...

    [SIZE="7"]. Help!! My 4 week old squab was out of her nest and landed on the ground. My 9 month old pigeon went after the squab while I was gone and picked it on the head and drew blood. How can I keep the older pigeons from bullying the squabs??? Any ideas??

    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...

    I've had my boy Rizzo for about a year and hes been pretty docile the entire time prior to the past couple weeks. Anytime I bring my hand near him now he starts dancing and cooing up an angry storm with aggressive pecking to boot. Hes really being a troublesome fella! I got him from a fancier...

    My female ringneck dove has become very aggressive towards family members. When she's in my hands she will coo and kiss my hands and put her beak in between my fingers. But when she sees my brother just by hearing his voice she starts to tremble and wants to peck his face really hard lol. When...

    Hey everyone a month ago I rescued a baby pigeon from downing in a river while I was fishing. Out first he would nibble my fingers and also stick his beak between them. Today I noticed he developed his coo and also started biting and latching on to my finger instead of nibbling them. Is it a...

    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...

    I took a video the day I recued him (thus his messy cage). He seems to be pretty okay with me, he likes sitting on my shoulder or on my lap and it doesn't try to walk away if I get near him. But if I am standing in front of his cage, he'll start this really low coo and puff up his neck and back...

    I adopted Easter, my pigeon, this summer (also known affectionately as Bird) from a rescue clinic. I called the clinic and asked them if they can help, but they told me if I bring Easter over for them to look at, they will not give him back to me because they are not a vet service. So, I'm...

    Hi all, My friend has around 10 pigeons. They behaved good. But now a cock has started fighting everyone all of sudden. He chases other pigeons. No fighting inside loft. He beat others when we let them out twice daily. He was our favorite white cock but now we totally hate him. Is there any way...

    Hi, about two years ago now I saved a baby pigeon that had a broken leg. He has always been a little aggressive but recently started nesting and has gotten extremely territorial over my entire house. I hate having him in the cage, so we have a diaper for him but my parents are getting sick of...

    Hello. We found Angie, a male king pigeon last march. After about 3 months of being sheepish, shy and sometimes mildly pecking my hand, Angie started approaching me and it became a warm fun relationship. He would perch on my shoulder, or let me pet and stroke him. He acted standoffish towards...

    I have a very aggressive cock in my loft, he basically does not allow anyone to eat and drink, his nest is quite close where I normally put the food and water, so he normally bully everyone when they try to eat/drink. I tried to move the water bowl etc, it does not work very well. I...

    Yesterday morning my pigeon was in her cage, and I was going to be leaving the house soon, and realised the cage was a mess with poop in her water bowl and poop all over the news paper flooring. I curved my hand around her to get the bowl of water out, and expected she would probably move out...
