    Hello all, a pigeon laid its eggs and one of them finally hatched on July 30th. The thing is that it's brother pecked a hole onto the egg, causing the pigeon to come out earlier than expected. The pigeon, after hatching itself was abnormally small. Soon, the pigeon started to grow weird black...

    Hi folks. I'm in Rochester, NY and on Friday my coworker found a baby pigeon in the parking garage at our work. It was running frantically in lopsided circles and its foot was bleeding fairly heavily. It left a pattern on the floor like a little kid using a Spirograph. We think his parents were...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi Looking for advice about a fledgling pigeon I picked up last night in the garden. He looks just like an adult but smaller. He must have flown here with a flock but after all the pigeons left he was still here and sleeping on my garden path. I left him out until about 7.30pm and we managed...

    So mom and dad made a nest on top of my AC unit. Lay 3 eggs but unfortunate only 2 babies made it. For days I only saw the mom(I'm just assuming was the mom) She never left and I never saw the father. I felt bad, thinking that she has to be hungry and thirsty. I bought pigeon food and place...

    I made a post a day or two back, concerned that a baby pigeon was left alone during the night, and thankfully, someone told me that sometimes the parents do end up leaving the baby alone during the night early on, and that really was the case. So, here I am again, looking for more advice. It...
  6. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    My partner and I found this young pigeon/morning dove outside, last night. We took them in because it looked like the mother or mate was trying desperately to get to it, and did not want the second bird to get injured as well by this. We expected the one we took in to die rather quickly, but as...

    Hello, pigeon people! Almost two months ago I picked up both injured and very ill squeaker (must have been about 3 weeks old since his voice started changing recently) and I’ve been taking care of him since then. By the time I found him he was basically blind since one of his eyes was...

    Hi all, I have 2 squabs hatched around 3 days ago. I went to check up on them today and noticed that there are a lot of little bugs crawling all over them, on their beak, inside their ears and on their body. Can anyone tell me what these are? How do I get rid of them? Will the squabs survive...

    Yesterday, I noticed that the tips of the flight feathers of my 23-days-old squab looked white. Upon closer examination, I noticed that they are growing frayed. What is the name and cause for this condition? Is there a treatment?
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    This pigeon has been hanging around our house for a few days. It's stayed in the same area and it's been a hot few days with no rain, so we're worried it is dehydrated and/or hungry. I've googled and it looks like he's not very old? We live in a very rural area so there are a lot of foxes that...

    I found a pigeon 4 days back which was bit by a dog. I had taken it to a vet and got the wounds attended. 2 days later when the pigeon started walking, it was turning in circles quite often. Since today morning, she had been turning her head upside down a lot. Every few minutes she is doing that...

    Hi everyone I have a young crested pigeon which I've been raising for about a month. He was found at the local pool in a nest of ants after an apparent fall so leaving him there wasn't really an option. He seems to be generally healthy but has a few things that are concerning me, especially to...
  15. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello, We regularly feed pigeons near our windows, among them are a few fledged chicks that always squeak to any other pigeon in order to try and get food (this often annoys other pigeons who then attack them). We left our window ajar once and a disheveled looking chick was being attacked and...

    Hi everyone. I have taken on an orphaned squab....(I'd say about 7 days old) and am wondering if I could give it to my pigeon pair in my aviary to surrogate. They are currently sitting on fake eggs so could I swap the eggs for the squab?? Or is it too old? I can feed and rear myself but thought...

    Can a 2-week old pigeon be raised off a diet of peas, corn, and some pigeon seed mix? I read the crop should be emptied out before feeding again so how many hours in between each time? I also have chicken layer pellets... any other foods I can easily pop into his mouth for the nutrition he needs...

    Hi I'm new around here and to pigeons. I have a one week old squab with a lump on the left side of its neck that I just noticed today and I'm not sure what it is. I can't tell if it's canker, I can't get the beak open enough to see down the throat. The crop is empty and he/she is fairly...
