  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello, all. I picked up a wood pigeon with a dragging wing a couple of weeks ago. She's recovering and is slowly getting movement back in her wing. The vet advised I should put her in a larger enclosure, so I've made a makeshift aviary in a trailer for the time being. It's large enough that...

    I've been working on this aviary for my pair of ringnecks for...well, way too long now. It's a couple days from completion--I have to glaze new panes into the open windows and add the second door--but I've been thinking about the floor. It's currently covered in heavy-duty hardware cloth, with...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello! For about two years now I've always wanted to get into birds. They've fascinated me and they're the most amazing creatures, in my opinion. When I was younger I had two lovebirds and a parakeet, but this would be the first time I've gotten birds for sometime. I decided that I would like...

    I'm heading back to WA state for a little while (for sad funeral type reasons) and I wanted to know if there were any places I could go to play with pigeons or doves, or if anyone has an aviary and wouldn't mind some people playing with them =) And when I say play with them I mean handle them...

    These are pictures of my loft and the aviary. I couldn't upload more images as I kept getting some error messages. Can someone let me know if the loft is good enough (spacious etc.) and the same with the aviary (it is roughly 10 feet x 10 feet x 12 feet). I have 10 pigeons now. Apart from 2 of...

    Hello everyone, I have decided to build a loft/aviary for my 5 pigeons. I research online for a few days looking for ideas that best fit my conditions and benefit the birds and I came up with a loft aviary in one open space rather than the box loft with windows that many people have. The...

    Hello! I am almost done with an outdoor aviary for my rescued pigeon Mo. I am attaching it to his coop that he lives in now, and I want to put some plants and natural perched in it. I was thinking of just planting some of his bird seed so I will know that it is all safe. So... My question is...

    We rescued an abandoned squeaker pigeon during a heat wave last summer. His name is Baby Jack. He's now about seven months and needs a home. He reminds me very much of the pigeon just caught at the Ground Zero Memorial -- he's very people oriented but can be a brat! Because he's so used to...
