  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello! A few weeks back, a pigeon came to our apartment balcony (5th floor, highest to an open sky) and laid some eggs inside one of our flower pots outside (the pots are empty, so there's nothing inside, making for a great space for a nest). She came back there everyday and after a while the...

    Hi there. I've had an adult wild pigeon taking refuge in my back garden for the last 3 days. I'm guessing it was attacked by a cat as the large feathers on it's left wing have been torn off. It cannot fly, but is able to flap both of it's wings. I found it when I went out to water the garden...

Brutus who has no tail feathers due to being wounded by crows as a baby was on my arm and I started petting him. When I pet him he usually flies a few feet...

    Hello all, I have had my white homing pigeons since last September, but have not flown them yet out of the loft. I was told to wait until spring when the hawk migration gets better. Well, I am scared to fly them, and not sure when I should start. So none of them have flown yet, I have all...

    I got two pouters last week, m and f unpaired but I saw them mate about 4 days ago. These are the only birds I keep. Now the female just sits in her nest bowl most of the day, which seems normal, but the male has taken to flying onto me now. I think he was trained by the previous owner bc if I...

    Hey, so I bought a pair of pigeons in June. They laid eggs sometime around September. Two babies were born and they grew up to be healthy. The parents laid again and the eggs hatched again. My problem is- Whenever I feed the pigeons, the father pigeon does not allow the first batch of babies to...

    Hi all, Hoping for a bit of advice on what to do. A falcon attacked my birds while they were flying out this afternoon. Thankfully I got them all back, though one has a wound on the back of his neck. The skin has been sliced open, almost full thickness and about 3/4 inches long, but it has bled...

When I feed my dog he flies down to the floor and goes near her food to discourage her from eating, the dog has to gobble down her...

About a year ago last summer she was attacked by a hawk and was hurt pretty badly, she sprained her leg and wing, complete tail feather loss, neck/head feather loss. She is all better since then...

    As you might know, Tundra and Clove had more babies! VesperIII and Aries are very big now, although I've forgotten how old. Anyway. Vesper -the younger- has been being attacked pretty hard by Tripp. I hadn't known how hurt she was, but today I grabbed her to find her all bloody and sad under...

    Hi everyone, I've got four fantails. We live in a very quiet beach suburb, never had any problem before. The pigeons never go too far, usually they just sit in the cage or on our balcony. I always lock them up for the night and let them out late morning. However, yesterday, around midday, we...
