  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! I have very recently taken in a beautiful pigeon who is possibly abandoned, as suggested by leg-bands that do not belong to any organisation as such, but kept as a pet. However, back to the reason I posted this question: The pigeon is very healthy, eats well (has a few favorite...

    I just brought another pigeon into the house; when I went down to the loft to tidy up & feed/water the flock, I heard an odd rhythmic sound, but since it was windy, at first thought the roof turbine was off-balance, or something. Then, I realized it was a pigeon's breathing. It almost sounds...

    Has anybody every heard of Hypersensitivity pneumonitis in relation to pigeons or pigeon feces? I have read that it can be caused by cockatiels or other pet birds. Does anybody have any information or first hand experience with this? Any information or first hand knowledge would be very...
  9. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I've been worried that some of the pigeons' nests are old and dusty, they use the same ones over and over, one of my females had breathing problems a few weeks ago and died 2 days later, her nest may have been a bit damp too could this have killed her (aspergilosis?). I don't know why I let that...
