  1. Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I've spoken before about this pigeon being aggressive with the single female I had, and he accidentally killed her a few days after her eggs hatched (or I hope accidentally, he did seem quite sad after). Well I've been putting the two young pigeons that hatched at the start of summer...
  2. Training and Behavior
    I rescued a single female a few months ago, and I just adopted a single male recently in the hopes that they would at least get on, perhaps pair up, and offer eachother some company, as my female was very lonely. I keep them separate overnight, but I let them out together and when she gets too...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hey there, In advance, I apologize for the long post. I have a bunch of questions in regard to the pigeon I have rescued in the past two weeks. Let me paint the picture for all my experienced pigeon owners out there HOW WE CROSSED PATHS: my land has over 10 acres and i see plenty of wildlife...

    I acquired my white hen a couple of days ago, and put her in the cage with my male, with a barrier between them. At first it was a solid plastic barrier, but since things seem to be going well I swapped the plastic for a metal barrier. Since then they've been spending most of their time next...

    My knowledge of pigeon behaviour is pretty limited so far. I've noticed males courting females among ferals, but not much else. Now I have Jacobins, whose heads and necks are fully or partially covered in their hood feathers. I bought an adult male and an unsexed juvenile who I'm now suspecting...

    I took a video the day I recued him (thus his messy cage). He seems to be pretty okay with me, he likes sitting on my shoulder or on my lap and it doesn't try to walk away if I get near him. But if I am standing in front of his cage, he'll start this really low coo and puff up his neck and back...

The hen developed some problem with egg laying so was separated and united again with her hubby. She hasn't let her cock mate with her in weeks,atleast in front of me neither...

    So my pigeon Ragweed got a new cage a few months ago and since then he's developed a new habit(which I think he always would have done but this cage makes it easier for him. He hides under his paper. Sometimes it's his whole body and he will some how get under all of it. Other times it's...
  12. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Evening fellow pigeon fanciers, I recently purchased three young birds which I have trained and raised to be healthy birds. I let them out for the first time the other day and all 3 walked around the garden and flew for a while. Upon calling them in only two returned. One of them decided to...

    Curious to know your observations on pigeon behaviour... Behaviour changes during sickness, breeding and moult. Currently my birds are hatching 'fake eggs'...the female is behaving much the same way she always does, slow and passive, calm. There are moments she starts pacing frantically, and...

    Can anyone tell me what the grunting sound means? I just adopted a tumbler pigeon (adult) today. When I went to pick him out of the box he grunted quite a bit. He seems quite scared, both wings shaking. I'm leaving him settle in for a few days before I start getting to know him. And I say him...
  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'm wondering if there's a way 2 tell pigeons gender by how they act? How tame they can be, whether or not they bite, can a female do male things like try 2 mate with your hand? My pigeon Cody rarely bites but u couldn't even pat my old pigeon without being bitten firmly I posted a question...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Our rescued Green Imperial Pigeon is exhibiting some very odd behaviour and we would love to know what it means. It is only about 4-5 months old and has started making some odd noises and 'dancing'. It starts with her bowing her head and almost growling then this turns into a throat clicking...

    I have recently taken my pet pigeon bong bong to the vet. The vet at first thought 'Bong Bong' was a female ...until he nearly lost a finger :D i believe the his descriptors were 'demon' and rottwieler! Bong Bong is fine with me 90 percent of the time - but does seem more 'pecky' on my...

    I hardly get to writing these days because I am so very busy with our little ones. In the meanwhile my day begins at 6.30 :eek: when Willy arrives to feed Peppi and Pina (formerly Peppino - but I am sure in the meanwhile that Peppino is a Peppina - therefore we changed it to Pina) I am taking...
