    Hello everyone!, So yesterday i found a sick, orphan pigeon. Today i took her to the vet, and i brough some medicine, the good news is that she seems to have a lot of energy and no infection in the stomach.

    Hello. I heard that it is good for doves to bathe about once per week. I have had my dove Curie for about three weeks now and she just doesn't seem to want to bathe! I am getting a little concerned because her feet are starting to get dirty, but I don't know what to do. I have tried putting a...

    I normally let my birds have bath once or twice per week, but now is breeding season, I notice some parents left the nest box and having a bath then back straight to sit on the eggs. as their body is still wet, will this damage the egg?

    Hello all It would appear my birds avoid the bath. I have put a bird bath in their large cage, its an old ice cream tub, and filled it up about 2" with water. I have seen them drink from it, and often poop in it but have never seen anything to suggest they splash in it. Is that normal?

    I make fried rice (this time vegan, and no ingredients that are harmful to pigeon) often using a small wok. Just yesterday, I forgot to dish wash the wok I make fried rice with and instead I just filled it with water and left it on a kitchen sink. When I came home from work today, my pet...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I recently found a baby pigeon that I ended up taking home and rescuing, but I think there is something very wrong with him and I would like some help. I live in London, and found him two days ago sitting underneath a mans feet on a train in the underground! It was sweltering hot and there...

    Hi All We "inherited" a pair of (racing) pigeons from my step-daughter last year after they fell out of her palm tree (NZ pigeons have a thing about nesting in palm trees - weird). After raising them both to maturity (the male is about 1-2 months older than the female), we "let them go" - only...

    I have managed to film him while taking his bath before bed time, sorry if the video is to long I am not that good at editing videos. He was enjoying the warm water for about 3 minutes before cleaning himself rapidily...

    So I was wondering if i can/should give my pigeon a bath in the winter. I live in MA, so it has gotten warm during the day (30-40 sometimes) but cold at night (teens-30). On warmer days, is it okay to give my pigeon bath water? He lives completely outside but obviously has sunshine to sit in all...

    I like to let pigeons to have a bath. Can deseases be transferred from pigeon bathing like pigeon pox? I use Dettol in water so it may help to not let deseases in water.

    Got a few noob questions that I'm hoping to get answered. First, I haven't given my birds bath water for 2 weeks now. This is due to temp. I live in WI and we're in the single digits right now. I have seen wild birds bathing in the winter and pretty sure my pigeons will also. But my question is...

    Went to go brush my teeth tonight and ended up with a dove in the sink instead! She's so funny sometimes--loves water unless its coming out of a spritzy bottle. Last week when I was about to get in the shower she came flying in and stole my spot, so I had to sit on the floor for 15 minutes while...

    After work today Cooter decided that he needed to get into the sink when I was running water! I checked the temperature and put in the stopper and in he went. I only ran about 1 inch of water and her was splashing and rolling to one side and then the other - it was absolutely hilarious!!!:) I...

But the female pigeon is really feeding them well and I'm playing their father's role. I keep fresh water and food bowl for her inside the box. From past one week even...
