    I have a pair of pigeons nesting in my balcony and the day before yesterday, the 16 day old babies were attacked by a hawk. The hawk killed one baby and the other was injured.

  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello from a really green newbie Last week my wife and I needed to go to the grocery store to get a few things. We took our dogs with us and as we left the house the little one barked an alert and ran over to the tree in our front yard. He didn't touch it, but we was sniffing at a downed...

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Aeiou. So yesterday I found a pigeon which was attacked and injured by a hawk or some sort of other grey bird. I drove it away and brought the pigeon home because he didn't seem to be in a good condition - his head was bleeding in a few place and he barely could open his left eye. He also...

    Advice? - stop the rolls I recently brought home a parlor roller from a pigeon supplies store in LA where someone had dropped off some birds. He was missing all the feathers on the top of his head, underweight and with quite a dose of lice and mites. I figured the least I could do was get him...

    So I swung by Jedds pigeon supply in Los Angeles a few days ago and while there he mentioned someone had dropped off some birds while he was away- pulled out an almond young bird and said it was a parlor roller (has 2 bands one for APRA) that only did a pancake flip when he tried it on the lawn...

  11. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi. I'm in Philadelphia. I've had a feral pigeon for a month, that I believe was gored by a gull. Two deep chest wounds are healing fine, although she can't yet fly; she's missing the middle digit and "thumb" on one foot; and I've just come to realize that she's blind in one eye. I want to find...

    Hello everyone, I've been noticing that one of my diamond doves has been spending more and more time at the bottom of my aviary with my quail. Since they're buddies, I didn't give it too much thought, but upon closely observing her today, I discovered what her eyes seem to be sealed shut...

  14. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hi - I am looking for someone who wants to adopt my pigeon. He is a fancy variety, but I do not know what kind exactly. I think he may be some kind of roller. He is red checked on his body and wings and has an all-white tail and head. He is blind in one eye from an injury that happened...

    Hello from another new poster. We have been rescuing animals for years and releasing when possible, keeping when not, and 5 days ago I found a young wood pigeon on the path, and he was blind in one eye, so he would take off into things that he couldn't see-a parked car and a tree, for example...

    I have a flyer who wants all white pigeons. He has purchased a group of young birds from a reputable person that races whites. One of the birds would not fly off the landing board. He could not figure out what was wrong and was going to C#@&% the bird. Log story short, I have the bird and it...
