    Hi again! Rex is bonded to me now (I think) and really settling in, but I was curious about some of her behavior since I'm new to pigeon body language. Before when I first got her she was exploring and sitting with me at my desk, and a couple days ago I made her a nest out of a t-shirt since...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have an adult female ringneck dove. She is healthy, she has all her feathers, normal poop, is eating, and drinking. However, she never made any sounds at all, not even at night. There is no cooing or laughing noises, nothing. She is the only dove I have. Is it normal for them to be so quiet? I...

    I have two fantail pigeons that are not paired yet. I have noticed some different behaviors but I don't know if they're natural because I havn't had that many pigeons. It seems like sometimes when the male starts cooing to the female the female will start pecking, "wing slaping", and chasing him...

    We have one pigeon we keep in a coop outside. We live in the mountains, in hawk & peregrine country, at higher elevation than any wild pigeons around here. So if we let him out, he'd be instant hawk or peregrine food. We visit him once a day, he sits on our heads & shoulders, and usually peeks...
