    Hi! So back in April there was a baby that was downed from its nest outside of my work. Because of the impending weather and its proximity to a high-volume parking lot, I chose to rescue it.

When we first got the doves we allowed them to raise two young, which we kept until the male became too aggressive towards them (about a month each). We separated the two offspring from their...

    Maggie has taken to going into my Quaker Clyde's cage and stealing his pellets for a snack. She only likes the red ones. Clyde doesn't care, but one of my tiels, Johnny, does. He flies over and stands on the door and scolds while she's in there (which doesn't bother her in the least). The red...

    I am at a loss and hope someone has an answer. I have a mated pair of pigeons who live in a loft with 2 of their babies who are now 7 1/2 weeks old. They also have new babies who are 2 weeks old and are being wonderful parents. Last night, the mom and dad and 2 youngsters settled in on a ledge...
