    I recently visited my local animal shelter and noticed two very beautiful pigeons that I seriously considered taking in, though I am curious about their breeds. Both were brown-over-white, and seemed very close, almost like mates. However, they were each of different types. The first had a very...

    I found a pigeon last night on the golf course. Thank heavens for the internet! He now in a box with water and bird seed and was drinking last night and this morning. I'm assuming he can't fly (or he would) and seem to fall forward on this head but is then able to right himself. He can...

    I'm a little disturbed about all the negative "there's a good chance that they will be killed if returned" posts lately. YES, I realize that SOME racing folk do this. However, MOST of the racing folk I know go to great lengths to get their birds back. MOST really care about what has happened...

    I'd like to thank every one for helping us. We were able to contact someone from an animal shelter who rehabilitates birds and releases them so our little friend is being taken care of. He's been eating well and it seems that the lack of feathers on his head was probably from an accident on the...

    We found a baby pigeon in the rain. It's pretty old but not quite full grown yet. We don't think it can fly yet. What should we feed it? Can we feed it whole seeds? How should we care for it in general? How do we know when its ready to be released? Also the feathers on the top of its head is...
