  1. General Pigeon & Dove Information
    My two pigeons have eggs that are soon to hatch and I wonder if there is anything I can do differently to help keep the chicks (and parents) healthy? Such as change feeding habits, add supplements and so on. I very occasionally add avipro to their water, and that is really the only supplement I...

    Hi, I know nothing about birds, I was driving along and saw a pigeon on the side of the road in distress. The pigeon can't walk, I'm assuming it's a pigeon, please see the photo. I've put it in a cage, and covered the cage to reduce the light. It also has a shoe box in there lined with...

    Ah, hallo again! Quick question. I've heard that Red Cell vitamins are suitable and provide most of the vitamins needed for Ringneck Doves? Here's the link to it: http://www.foyspigeonsupplies.com/vitamins-minerals/689-red-cell-16oz I'm not sure if this is suitable for Ringnecks, and please...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello there! I am new to the boards and as expected I have never owned a pigeon before. A little backstory on the bird in question, I was sitting under a pier with my SO when I saw something flopping around in the surf. Curious, I got up and walked over only to see it was a small pigeon...

    I found an injured adult pigeon a few hours ago. It did not try to scamper away, was hard to rouse enough to get it to drink. I have given it the electrolyte water, it isn't drinking much - needs much prompting to sip. I think it was either hit by a car or flew into something. I notice a back...
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi Everyone, Happy to say these Pigeons seem to be doing well :p It is a major learning curve, and I have more questions. The male seems to not want to 'go to bed'... each night when I put him back in the cage he fusses big time, making a loud noise and walking in circles. The female is very...

    Hi all, Hoping for a bit of advice on what to do. A falcon attacked my birds while they were flying out this afternoon. Thankfully I got them all back, though one has a wound on the back of his neck. The skin has been sliced open, almost full thickness and about 3/4 inches long, but it has bled...

    hello, i've recently run into problems with paranoid roommates who don't feel it's safe to keep my homing pigeon inside the house. we have built him a loft inside with lots of space, regularly change his water and food, and do a good clean out every few days. i let him out for a walkabout at...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello My dog found a pigeon today whilst we were out walking. She just sniffed at it before I called her off. I was walking along a canal and I think that the pigeon may have fallen from the rafters or window ledge of a tall warehouse building. It couldn't fly, but looked fully feathered. I...
