    Hello, I have a pair of Portugese tumblers that would like to have chicks. I would also like this, but I don’t know if they’re good at raising and/or feeding chicks. Are they good parents and can they adequately feed their young? Thank you!

    I have an open loft with 3 hens and 3 cocks. Previouasly, I had 3 hens and a cock and I just bought 2 new cocks. In the open loft, can they make pairs on their own? Or is there something that I need to do to encourage them?

    I bought a pair and kept them in an open loft making a total of 2 cocks and 3 hens. The paired pigeon initially laid eggs and those hatched too. But now, when the squabs are 3 and a half weeks old, the cock is aggressive on the hen and mates with another hen. The other hen is not laying eggs...

    Hi, New to pigeon keeping. I have a large outdoor aviary with 6’x4’ shed inside. The aviary has a full roof and windbreak so isn’t draughty, cold or wet. Inside the shed I have proper breeding boxes (with nest bowls) and perches. The birds are closed in at night. I have a pair of garden...

    Throughout my time in the hobby I’ve never had an infertile egg before. Therefore, I’ve never had to candle an egg and have no experience candling eggs. The eggs below are 15 and 17 days old. To me they both look infertile but I’d like to get more opinions before I pull them against my better...

    I’m wondering if my ringneck dove will continue consistently producing eggs for her entire life or if production will taper off as she gets older. If anyone has any experience watching their female pigeons’ laying habits over a long period of time that would be super interesting to know about...
  8. General Pigeon & Dove Information
    Hi I'm based in the UK and am looking to purchase 3 pairs of fantail doves to start off a 6 compartment dovecote. Now, according to all the websites I've been reading up on, they all state you don't need to buy 6 pairs to fill a 6 compartment cote since the birds will breed up to 8 times a...

    Hello, newbie here. I have an (apparently breeding) pair of pigeons sitting on two eggs for 10 days. I noticed 3 days ago the male was fluffed and the next day, shivering. According to my (internet) research I think it is coccidium(?) so ordered some items. Of course they are taking forever to...

    I just started in the pigeon world with my first two American Fantails. I've joined some Facebook groups and have gotten quite a bit of info. I was talking to a gentleman that breeds his birds, and he stated that he breeds his birds to their parents and other family members. Is this normal...

    I had a high flyer pair whose offsprings were performing well in competitions, but I lost the male and now I only have the female and a male offspring from the above mentioned pair. My question is, will the pairing of the mom and son birds produce quality offsprings?

    Two of my three ringneck doves are mated and are trying for babies but I think I have being ruining their chances. I have 3 cages. One is the extra large 30x40 6 foot tall cage in which the mated pair (egg laying pair) stay during the day in my room. Their nest is in this large cage as well. At...

    The hen has been laying down a lot with a wing tucked. It's pretty cute. The male has topped her several times by now so I'm expecting eggs soon. This laying down is egg building behavior right?
  16. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, two of my pigeons seem uninterested in sitting on their eggs (they did that last time, too, but they're young and this is their second clutch). One of my other pigeons decided that nest was a perfect place to lay her own egg despite there being a seperate nest just for her and her mate (no...

    Hello I just got back into having racing pigeons a couple months ago after being away from them since high school. I had racing pigeons from middle school to my senior in high school which I am now 31. My question is why are my birds chasing each other around so aggressively when they have their...
  18. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    So I've sort of got an interesting breeding plan for this next year, I've found myself with extra damascenes as well as birmingham rollers. My plan this year is to breed an almond (a pure almond, I currently only have a spread almond cock) which should be fairly straight forward, I'm getting a...

    Last year I acquired two really pretty Portuguese Tumblers, I know when I sign them up for a show it's easy to just put "Tortoiseshell" on their coop tag, but I'd love to know more of the genetics behind these birds, because Finally they have produced a squab! I'm only curious because at the...
