  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I let my pigeon free fly at the park today, and everything was going good until a hawk came out of nowhere and snatched her up. The people at the park were screaming and the hawk dropped her in some bushed. I ran to get her but the hawk came back before i could find her. My bird got away and...

    I was fixing up my whole loft over these past few days and I must have made the new door a tad too big because when I bent down to fix something on the ground I heard one of my cock birds fly above me and out. I immediately looked up and saw that it was my red cock bird that took off. He is...

    Hi, I've been searching the internet for a while now about this. This morning I heard my dog running around like mad outside, I rushed out to see her trying to get at a pigeon who was fluttering about before hiding behind a plant pot. I quickly grabbed my dog and locked her inside the house...

    Yesterday, I came home from school and immediately checked to see if my young pigeons were home yet. They've only been flying for about 1 week and a half yet they are venturing far out. Anyways, since they weren't inside, I decided to take a stroll and perhaps see if I could spot my two pigeons...

    Hello all! I recently adopted four homing pigeons from a moving friend of a friend who had nowhere else to leave them. They are currently kept in a huge cage, and I have read multiple care sheets. I also received tips from my friend. Based on their behaviors, it seems that there are two pairs...

    Hi. How long does it take pigeons to get friendly?! Ive had my baby, Ralph, since he was about 18 days old. He is now a little over 2 months old. About 2 weeks ago I got him a girlfriend who ended up being older and male and would pick on him. So I returned her (him) and got another pij the...

    Hi guys! I just wanted to stop by quickly and ask for some advice - Airbus got attacked by a cat last week and he's got a bad leg and our vets are useless! At first the vet refused to see him as he's a pigeon but eventually they agreed and I went in and saw some vet who didn't even know how to...
