    Hi I have two pigeons on my balcony that visit me everyday and they eat from my hand and they are not scared. By the word "pet" i mean like how people pet a cat or dog. I want to pet a pigeon that way. How do I do it? :D

    Hi all, I've just had a home solar photovoltaic system installed on the roof of my house and garage. This article from the Audobon society seemed to suggest that home PV solar is quite safe for birds: https://www.audubon.org/news/why-solar-power-good-birds The installers are putting webbing...

    Has anyone observed young birds that do not develop feathers under wings and cannot fly? I have 3 from 2 different sets of parents and wondering if it is genetic, nutritional, or disease based. The first died at 2 months of age. Need advice.
  9. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi When I had racing pigeons we could identify them all individually but with the fantail doves we have now they almost all look the same, what methods do pigeon talk members use to identify individual birds. A few have leg rings so I guess the only way to do this is to get clip on rings for...
  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I just need a list of what I need to own a Ringneck dove. I'm getting really confused because many different sites each show that doves need something different than the last. Preferably not the most expensive things out there. Thanks in advance, Taubee :o
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Sorry to bother, I have another question. I've been told that you can use a good-sized dog crate to house an indoor ringneck dove? Is this an ok idea? This is the crate i'm thinking of...
  12. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hallo again! Aaa, I've got a quick question. What are the best/most recommended perches for ringneck doves? And how many do they need? Some people say they only need 1 or 2, a round and a flat. Any help would be appreciated! I know it's kind of a basic question, but I just want to double check.
  13. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    It seems that some people who want birds for cruel purposes join this forum in order to get free and low priced birds. You have to be careful and wary not everyone has good intentions at heart and might pretend to be a pigeon lover cause they are so desperate to get what they want. So here are...

    This is Reign. She was born March 20, 2007. She is a Crested Frillback. She is the only pigeon I own at the moment. If I had the time I would have more, though I don't think she would appreciate it. She doesn't know she a pigeon and she thinks my cat Isaac is her mate. Yeah she has problems. . .

  16. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Due to the racing ban, a young flyer said his young birds just started routing out and in a week he was going to start road training them to get a head start on the young bird season. A couple of other fellows said he was messing up. They went on to say that he should loft fly through the...
  17. Small Talk
    "Bird people" are different from "cat people" or "dog people." Its a bit weird to use labels like that but I have noticed different "factions" so to speak, when it comes to animal lovers. More often than not we're put into these categories and then distinguished further by the level of our...
