  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a young pigeon that is a little over a month old. She (or he) is a bit peckish and bites us all the time. She doesn't seem to tame, and even the offer of food doesn't help. She keeps inside of her cage all the time, and won't come out on her own. When she is taken out her only focus is...

    I have a 2.5 months old rescued pigeon. When I found him he about 3 weeks old and now he's all grown up and most definitely a male. An aggressive and territorial one. He spends most of his time outside from morning to dusk, and comes back to eat and sleep. He started to coo about 2 weeks ago and...

    Hello everyone, I was recently reading up on something called a pecking order. Where a new pigeon will come in and out of the pigeons they will decide whos "in charge" by chasing each other and trying to fight each other? Has this happened to anyone before and will a female fight a male to...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I adopted a feral pigeon from a local animal rescue yesterday The staff told me that he had flown into the kennels and was extremely friendly towards humans (not flying away when it was approached, flying onto the staff’s heads and shoulders), so animal control decided that it would be best...

    Hey everyone a month ago I rescued a baby pigeon from downing in a river while I was fishing. Out first he would nibble my fingers and also stick his beak between them. Today I noticed he developed his coo and also started biting and latching on to my finger instead of nibbling them. Is it a...

    They definitely do! I'm just wondering if anyone's dove bites them like mine does. His bites never hurt and we have an awesome relationship so I'm not concerned. His biting seems playful since he doesn't show any body language saying he's uncomfortable or mad. I have a petting signal which is...

    About 4 months ago I rescued a very young pigeon who had been attacked by crows and had a large wound that caused his tailfeathers not to grow back. SHe is around 4 months now just finishing her first moult and I dont know what sex she is. She shows both male and female mating behaviours. When I...

    So a while ago we found a baby pigeon on our front yard, about a couple weeks old only. Feathers only starting to grow. He also had a terrible condition with his neck. Skip to now, he is almost fully grown and completely okay. We sometimes take him outside to walk and practice flying and daily...

    When I first got my pigeon he was kind and sweet, letting me pet him and come near him. Now that he has reached about three months old (give or take) he has suddenly gone from cute and timid to aggressive and "bitey." He puffs up and coos in circles when I get near him and if a hand approaches...

    Hello, we've had Angie, a female King Pigeon for about three years, after we found her in a park. At first Angie bonded with me and ignored my wife, then after we went away for a long weekend, we came back and I found she was biting me, and started following around my wife … I assume then that...

    I got a pigeon from my neighbor who owned a pet store. The bird was given to her at around 2 years old. She gave me the bird because she knew how much I liked chickens and wanted a Victorian crown pigeon. Anyway, the pigeon is a white, fan-tail pigeon and I like her a lot. I bought her a nice...

    I know they can probably pinch, ect...but does it hurt? From what I've read pigeons seem to hurt more than doves. Is there a certain kind of dove, pigeon or bird that can't bite? If you think all birds bite which one would you say hurts the least? Thank you!

    Hi, about two years ago now I saved a baby pigeon that had a broken leg. He has always been a little aggressive but recently started nesting and has gotten extremely territorial over my entire house. I hate having him in the cage, so we have a diaper for him but my parents are getting sick of...

    Hello. We found Angie, a male king pigeon last march. After about 3 months of being sheepish, shy and sometimes mildly pecking my hand, Angie started approaching me and it became a warm fun relationship. He would perch on my shoulder, or let me pet and stroke him. He acted standoffish towards...
