  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    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...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    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 went over and shooed the crows away, the pigeon didn't try flying away, so I picked it up and wrapped him in my sweater to bring home. I have him with me now...

    I just introduced Qetso, a rescued flightless (kid with a BB gun, hence the rescue) feral who I suspect is a male to Ishtar, a young old frill who I merely hope is a female. I put them in the same cage together to see how they'd get along. They are just standing there with their feathers...
