    The first picture is of his right cheek that is normal. The other side is the swollen side and the straight on photo you can see how it's swollen. I just noticed this bump yesterday, not sure how long it's been like that. I was planning to release him in a couple weeks. He's been doing well...

    Hello, I am asking this on behalf of a friend: she has a pair of doves nesting in a tree, and they have chicks. One of them died from the cold (of the chicks) and she is concerned about the other. The chick is just starting to learn how to fly. Is there anything she can do to help him? He is not...

    I'm hoping for some advice on baby pigeons' feet. I live in Asia somewhere where the help of an expert or ready made supplies does not appear to be readily available. I am hoping for some advice from forum members here on the following situation in the meantime. Here's a quick run-down of...

    Hey guys, We have a white-winged fledgling dove named Norman. (pics below). He came to us by accident and we're trying to do the best we can. I'm just looking for experienced opinions - I know it's hard to tell from an online post what's really normal or not. I'm estimating he's about 14-16...

    Little backstory of this dove is that we have these nests by our front door, but there are also screech owl nests and red tailed hawks near by that hunt these doves and unfortunately the mother and father of these eggs were eaten so i incubated the eggs. One of them actually hatched and now im...

    Hello, I wanted to ask about my black collard dove. It was born the same day as its sibling and is definitely not thriving the same. Right from the first week it was half the size although it was feeding from the parent it is so far behind. It is not walking correctly and its feathers are...

    Hello, I live near Aliso Viejo in California. Three days ago our baby cockatiel escaped (she's back) and we happened to talk to our neighbor who has a cat later in the day she stopped by and said her cat had this baby in her mouth. She hadn't been damaged, she said it was her chance at life. In...
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    This is the first time I've seen both parents off the nest - even if it was just for a moment. :) I took a quick photo. These babies are 6 days old. Question: Should I keep providing hay for them to add to their nest? I know they enjoy doing this but I was concerned that the nest might fill...

    Hey guys. Just got a good look at our new babies. The older one is starting to get the feathers. And the younger one has this chipmunk like bulge in its neck like storing food. Is this normal or something to be worried about. Still moves around normally.

    Someone had left a baby Collard Dove in a box outside of a Petsmart, It was just sitting in the box not moving so I put it in a nearby tree hoping to see it's mother swing by but I sat and watched for 2 hours, then left and came back 3 hours later and there'd been no sign of the mom. The baby...

    Hi everyone! I am looking for some guidance. Yesterday when on a walk with my kids we came across this little fellow stranded in the road. No nest or parents in sight, so we took him home as there are lots of cats living in our estate. Yesterday he was so scared that just tried to peck me every...

    Hey folks, Here in Tulsa, OK there were a couple of violent storms that knocked a dove nest from the tree. We found 1 baby dead in a puddle on concrete and the other clinging to life on the morning of the 7th. I have researched and read everything I can find, and am checking in with some...

    Well, the dove has just hatched 1 hour ago. The parents are two moderately tame (tame enough to sit and eat on my hand) ringnecks/eurasian collared doves. I want to try and tame this baby dove, as babies are easier to tame, but I don't know when I should start feeding it by hand, to get it used...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello from a really green newbie Last week my wife and I needed to go to the grocery store to get a few things. We took our dogs with us and as we left the house the little one barked an alert and ran over to the tree in our front yard. He didn't touch it, but we was sniffing at a downed...
