  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    3 weeks ago, a fledgling fell off my roof too early. Over the last 3 weeks, it’s parents have flown down and fed it. A neighborhood cat nearly got it one day (it flew into my pool and I had to get it out) so for the next few weeks, every night I got it into a dog crate I placed outside and every...

    Hi guys, Quick back story. Two eggs abandoned on my roof. I incubated them. Squabs pipped at 16 days, assist hatched after 32 hours. Both perfectly formed and normal. Noticed by day 6 or so that both were still very small - growing, but very slowly. Also, both were occasionally extending their...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hey everyone, Wonder if anyone can tell me what the following motion signifies, if anything. Baby puts head down low, straightens legs and humps his back - much like the manoeuvre a cuckoo chick uses to push an egg out of the nest. I first thought this was a pooping posture, but it doesn't...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi Team, I have a few questions. 1. Out of the two eggs laid, is one always a female and one a male? 2. Do the two baby birds end up as mates? Thanks in advance for your input! Sarah

    HELP!!! One of my baby archangels had the back of his neck completely stripped. I finally put the two babies out in the aviary and one was attacked and didn't make it, but the other one is still alive. Unfortunately, the back of its neck is completely stripped, even a layer of skin! I rinsed it...

    Hi, I am taking care of a baby pigeon, 3 days old that got abandoned by mom. I have been feeding him egg yolks that I slightly warmed with a pipette every three hours or so. He is on a heating pad for warmth that I check every hour but up until now I had no way of regulating his temperature. I...

    Hi, We have a pigeon that was born on our balcony. How can I tell if it is male or female? Some pictures & video here: 6 new photos by Sergiy Belozorov. I have read that it's possible to tell by holding the wings and looking whether tail is straight or upright, but I am afraid to even touch...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have a baby mourning dove that is about 4 days old. I believe it might have a respiratory infection as it seems to be breathing heavily, its head tilts a bit to one side, and he/she has made a clicking noise a few times while breathing. He/she is also very twitch-y. This is my first time...

  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey everyone! Long story short, a pigeon laid eggs in my backyard by the backyard door on a pillar thing we have. It's a heavily trafficked area and we tried our best to stay away from it, but it's right by the door and we need access to our backyard for our own pets. Seemed the parents got...

    Hi everyone, I hope this is the right forum thread to post in. I'm really really anxious. I have a baby pigeon who I estimate to be around 2 weeks old. He was found on the sidewalk and the person couldn't find the parents' nest so searched for a carer. I took him in a few days ago and he has...

    Hi. I have pigeons that nested on my balcony under one of the chairs. I know nothing at all about birds. The eggs hatched 9 days ago. I noticed this morning that they have been unaccompanied by one of the adults most of the morning, which is not what I’d observed in the previous days. I’ve just...

    Hello, I have a few questions about a baby pigeon that I currently have living in my garden. It took its first flight last night (we are estimating it to be about 4 weeks old as we have been watching it for around 3 weeks 2 weeks before this we had seen the egg in the nest), and has had mini...

    I posted a video of my baby on Facebook in a pigeon group im in and someone mentioned it looks like he has angle wings (when the ends of the wings turn outward) and I have noticed this before but just figured it was because he’s still growing (he’s 19 day’s old) and didn’t think it actually had...

    So my pigeon is now 19 days old and doing good, except he seems to not want to be hand fed as much as he used to. He used to eat quite a bit but now he only seems to want a little then gets fussy (he’s currently on Kaytee exact) but he will peck away at seeds no problem and seems to eat those...

    Hi my little over 2 week old pigeon I just noticed today keeps closing his right eye. When he has it open it’s not as wide as the other one. He’s acting fine and the eye looks normal except for this. What could cause this and should I be concerned? It’s it’s not closed all the time just he’s...

    My baby is 17 days old today and I’m wondering if I should still be feeding him every 2-3 hours. He seems to not want to eat as much (he gets excited for a feeding and eats a bit then doesn’t want anymore), and I’m wondering if I should be waiting longer in-between for feeding now. And if so...
