    Hello all, I have a couple questions that I need some help on, regarding a baby dove that I am raising that came from my first pair of two doves. I am hand raising this dove as my first experience, and I believe this little guy is actually an albino, with not a lot of fuzz, red eyes, and...

  3. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Found a banded bird being preyed upon by local hoodlums (crows) They had him by the feet taking turns trying to disembowel him. He put up a good fight to break free and with some help from a black cat and us humans, he got free from the bird-jacking thugs. He has flesh and feathers torn from...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A week ago, I found a dove in my friends courtyard. He seemed confused and so my friend picked him up and put him in a spare finch cage. It is WAY to small for him, so I let him out almost every day to fly around my room, but he really needs a better solution. He seems to not mind me handling...

    Here is Albie at 4 weeks old today. He is flying, his splayed leg has healed and he walks normally, and the only thing you'd notice about his differences at hatching is that he is still an albino (of course). Although, in that aviary with his two all-white (non-albino) parents, you'd probably...

    I wish I'd weighed this guy when he was born because I simply can't get over how fast he is growing! He will be a week old tomorrow and is definitely 5 times the size he was when he hatched. It's unreal! Since his sibling died, he is receiving the nutrition of two babies, so maybe that has...
