  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.

    Hello. I am new to being a dove owner. I previously raised cockatiels, but that was 18 years ago. I have been wanting a dove for a long time. My vet has one in her office and I fell in love with Pandora. I have been looking everywhere and had been unable to find one. I finally found a guy...

    When I first got my King Pigeon I had converted more than half a bedroom to be his indoor aviary. It's 7 feet in height, 6.5 feet wide, about 5 feet deep so.. for one bird, that is plenty of room. It was asked of me by my in-laws that I also have a cage. For a while, I would put him in the...

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, my wild bird came to me and had a severely broken leg. Last week the splint finally came off and the leg has healed but is weak and she is only using it as a crutch, not much weight bearing and not gripping with her toes yet. I am doing physio with her and vet feels she may still get proper...

    I haven't posted in awhile, but find my doves behaving in a very agressive manner. I have 7 in a 3' x 10' loft with three cages with locking doors at the end of the loft. I have mainly rescue birds: two older white males, a female who I rescued from starvation and neglect, a female I took in...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi All We "inherited" a pair of (racing) pigeons from my step-daughter last year after they fell out of her palm tree (NZ pigeons have a thing about nesting in palm trees - weird). After raising them both to maturity (the male is about 1-2 months older than the female), we "let them go" - only...

    Hello everyone, I raise show pigeons and was wondering if any of you use all wire rabbit cages inside your lofts for breeding cages? I'm just trying to get ideas and this seems to be an easy idea but are there any...

    The back story: I recently found a pigeon with a BB in it's wing, and nursed it back to health but the poor thing will probably never fly again. I'm taking my unexpected roll as a pigeon owner quite seriously and find myself absolutely fascinated by this world. unfortunately, at the moment, I'm...

    Back when I was a starving college student I kept 2 ring neck doves and one rescued feral pigeon in my apartment. The feral came first and unexpectedly and having minimal funds and power tools I had to improvise on his housing. Fast forward to last week, when a lost king pigeon showed up at my...

    Hey there! :) I got a pair of doves this summer from the humane society, both male and both very sweet! There names are Merry and Pippin! I've been keeping them in a huge guinea pig cage, but I really want to get them something bigger, but it's so hard to find a bird cage that's wide enough...

    I've been looking at fan-top cages for my pigeon but I'm not sure which size I should get. I know it needs to be large enough so that he can open his wings. The sizes I'm stuck between are small and medium. The dimensions of the medium is 31.5W x 23D x 67H inches and the dimensions of the small...
  16. Loft Designs
    I have a 6x16 now divided into 2 sections and I think I need one more lol, I am thinking around 6X12, I am running out of room here so building any bigger would be pushing it. I guess I could make individual breeding cages instead too and not build the new loft??? Just thinking out-loud...
  17. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I am just getting into rehab work and was given a grounded pigeon by the rehabber I am currently working under. The pigeon had a broken wing that appears to have set bad. I was told that this one may be a perm placement as it may never fly and am totally ok with that. My question lies in what...
  18. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I'm not sure what section to put this post in, but definitely looking for some feedback. I have had my pigeon since well, she is just over a year old. She was still a baby last year June 22nd, I believe is when I found her. So maybe like around one year and four months. Anyways. She really...
