  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello, all. So glad I found this forum! Last night my housemates and I came across an injured or ill grey pigeon in Melbourne, Australia. Moonee Valley area. We were able to put it in a cat carrier and get it home. We have it in a dark secure shed out back in a cardboard box. I made up a...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Just found a pigeon with a droopy wing and injured leg. The bird, which was huddled in a corner, let me pick it up. I have secured it in a cat cage, with water and small pieces of grain bread. Is there anyone in the Sydney area - preferably North Shore - who has experienced nursing an injured...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have found a young feral pigeon that clearly left the nest too early. I have had it for about 3 weeks now, and I think when I picked it up it was around about 20 days old - making it approximately 7 weeks or so now. It has lost just about all of its down feathers, and the adult feathers are...

The government reports are saying that 98% of feral pigeons in...

  9. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hi! I'm quite new, and didn't join up to give away the bubs, but while I'm here I might as well try... See, my barbaries Peace and Quiet are prolific eggmeisters and have pumped out two gorgeous babies (Faith and Hope), but the problem is I have no room or time for them. I'm a full-time...

    Hello. I'm located in Australia, and am looking for a companion pigeon to keep my female 1 y.o 'feral' pigeon company. She's been living with only humans for company since I rescued her as a squab. She shows interest in wild birds, and I think she would like a friend. If anyone in Australia...
