  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I have a pair of pigeons nesting in my balcony and the day before yesterday, the 16 day old babies were attacked by a hawk. The hawk killed one baby and the other was injured. I attended and applied medicine on the visible injuries like on its tummy and under the wings where the hawk caught it...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello, I have 2 baby fantail pigeons both roughly 3 1/2 weeks old now and was wondering when I could take them out of the nest into our house. The parents are still feeding them but I think the hen is supposed to lay another batch of eggs soon. The coop is small and there might not be enough...

    Does the heating pad go under the box or should I cut off the bottom of the box , enclose the heating pad in a garbage bag, and put the bedding over that? Oh, a second question... I'm not doing well finding what I need using the search option. Is there one forum - or even just one source of...

    I was thinking about 13 days old? I've had em for 5 days. The black collar just emerged. The wings are starting to feather out. It's a tyrant for food. What are your thoughts on the age?
  6. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I am feeding my 10 day old (I think) baby the Exact Handfeeding Formula. I see recommendations here to feed them defrosted peas. What is the difference between these two? And with the formula, how do I know how thick to make it? Right now I am mixing it to the consistency of ketchup. But...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A pigeon couple decided to nest in a large pot on our balcony and lay a couple eggs. Only one egg hatched, and at this point the fledgling is three weeks old, and the parents leave them alone most of the day and just come back to feed them. After a month and a half of using the pot their poo...

    Found a feral baby pigeon, which I will probably keep as a pet. I am guessing s/he is about 8 days old? I have him in a small box with a cloth nest inside, have a heat lamp over it at about 80F. Have been feeding Kaytee Exact baby food, watery. Eats well, but what a mess to clean up! I'm...

    Background We live at Naihati, 38 kms from Kolkata, India. For the last few years our balcony on the second floor has been serving as the “maternity ward” for feral pigeons and doves. They lay eggs and rear their babies here. We regularly clean their nests and sometimes bring the babies indoors...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    To keep the story short, this last week has been raining a lot, and we found a baby bird two days ago that probably fell from his nest. There is no way to put him back, because the tree is around 5 meter tall, and is ridiculously cold, so he will most likely not survive if we try to leave him...

    Hey guys, I finally worked up the courage to seek some guidance on my squabs journey. I found an egg one morning while completing my exercise, but it wasn’t just an egg. In the middle of the road stood a mother pigeon and an egg underneath it. As I tried to make them a new nest and move them...

    Hello all. I haven't posted in a while but had a general question. I have 2 baby pigeons maybe alittle over 6 weeks old. Both are from different pairs but born relatively a day or 2 apart. They are both full feathered. One has already been flying around in the loft to the aviary and back to its...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello Everyone! Yesterday my cousin contacted me about a pair of baby pigeons. Their nest got blown out of the tree and the mother was seen abandoning the nest with a limp. This was in Provo, Utah. The Rehabilitation Center there wouldn't take them. My cousin will be dropping the pigeons off...

    Continuing this discussion: https://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f23/my-balcony-pigeons-119538.html Long story short: He doesn't move very much. Doesn't get to eat often since his bigger sister proactively intercepts parents and eats all the food. I caught him sneezing a couple of times. This is what...
  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A mother pigeon laid 2 eggs on my balcony. I have been watching the birds and taking a picture almost every day. The birds are about 3. Weeks now and today I found one dead. There was blood everywhere on the balcony and when I picked it up it looked like it’s little head had been picked of...
  17. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    A couple of times the smaller baby didn't get any food from a parent because the bigger one intercepted the parent before he could reach the nest, and the smaller one hesitated to leave the nest. I sometimes give parents some raw sunflower seeds and popcorn. Can I give some extra food to the...

    Hello everyone, I have a 30-day old rescued feral pigeon which has a bad compound fracture involving the major and minor metacarpus bones. I successfully treated the fledgling for shock and for the fracture. The bird's droppings are brown, which is good, but now becoming somewhat loose...

    Hi everyone this is my first question on here so I’m not even sure if I’m doing this right lol. But I’m looking after an orphan pigeon. He hatched 3 days ago and things seemed to be going good until around yesterday. I noticed his crop was slower than usual and the food took longer to leave it...
