  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hey guys. I'm planning to adopt 3 little fledglings later this month, and I want to know what kind of cage I should use. Its going to be indoors, and I'm leaning towards a ferret cage for sizing and shelves. What dimensions should the cage have for 3 pigeons? Thanks.

    Hi everyone, I would like to ask you if you knew if I can "mix" two birds in the same large cage. Both are rescues and were hand reared so there is no chance they will make it back in the wild. They are different kinds of birds though. One is a very small Croaking Ground-Dove (Columbina...

    At first, I used newspaper and then paper towels in Bertie's Cage but I feeling like it's such a waste. I've been experimenting with cabinet liners. I've been switching out between 2 sheets - using one while I wash the other with dish soap and water and hang to dry. Will cause any sanitizing...
  4. Loft Designs
    I've been watching about tipplers on youtube and I keep seeing some sort of trap cage on top of lofts or kit boxes that the tipplers use to enter their lofts. What do you call this? And is this really needed? Won't tipplers land and trap on a simple landing board and trap door? Sorry for too...

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone experienced could provide advice on this situation please. Me and my partner both work full time. We love pigeons and doves more than anything so we would love to get a barbary dove but I've always been afraid because of leaving it in a cage for hours during...

    Hey! I've yet to actually get my bird, but I am trying to look into as much information as possible (and have plenty of supplies ready) before taking the plunge and buying it. Will most likely be a fantail or a ringneck, but leaning towards fantail. Depends on what the local breeders have, so...

    Hi , I'm planning to install a mirror inside my pigeon's cage so that my pigeon entertains himself. Any recommendations on which side of the cage to install the mirror and if installing the mirror is a good idea ? He usually sleeps on the right side of the cage over his tube

    Hi all you wonderful pigeon lovers! :) My roadside rescued racing homer (I don't know what type) is doing very well. She is so sweet and loves to sit on my shoulder. She will always be blind in one eye and can not fly (although she loves to flap). I want to buy her a lg indoor cage (I have 3...

  10. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I found a pigeon under a bridge who had been hit by a car. This was in August. His (or her) skin on the left chest was split open but not bleeding. You could see the meat underneath. The left wing was obviously hurt. He is eating and drinking just fine. He drops like a rock when he tries to...

    Hello again! Quick question, are cage covers required for owning a lone ringneck dove? Also, can chicken wire be used to shorten the distance between bars on a cage if using a large dog crate? Thanks, Taubee :p

    Sorry to bother, I have another question. I've been told that you can use a good-sized dog crate to house an indoor ringneck dove? Is this an ok idea? This is the crate i'm thinking of...

    Hello all! I am brand new to this forum and am looking forward to getting new and refreshed information on the care of pet doves & pigeons. I've had diamond doves, ringneck doves and ?plain white doves? many years ago -- before the days of internet and forums. It's been awhile now since I've...

    I am going to be getting a King pigeon here in the next couple of weeks and am working on getting it's home ready. I was looking at rabbit hutches for his home as I thought it would look a little nicer than the dog crate but just am not sure if it will be big enough for a bird that big. Here...

    I want to move my pet pigeon into a cage, but I'm not sure how he will adjust or what type of cage to use. He's an indoor pet and has been known to act anxious in a large plastic pet carrier with a hard floor, but calm in a small pet carrier with a soft floor. He will try to stick his head...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone, I posted last week about an NPA pigeon we found in our community garden. We kept her in our sunroom with free range until today while we were trying to find a new home for her. We haven't had any luck, and I was having a hard time cleaning up after her all around the room, so I...

    Will a pet pigeon be comfortable in this cage? Will an adult pet pigeon be comfortable in this cage?

    Hello, I have been reading around about different types of cages for a dove, and I decided to build one for the best results. I was thinking of using this cage as a base design, but I'm unsure what the best modifications would be. I definitely want the cage to be big enough for two doves...
