    Hi, I have rescued a pigeon that appears to have PMV. The local animal rescues have advised for it to be euthanized, as they unfortunately cannot take it in. Having read of success stories of pigeons with PMV having been rehabilitated when cared for, I was wondering whether anyone would be able...

    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...

  9. 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...

    Good morning, I recently found a sweet racing pigeon. I researched her owner with the band and because she was hurt they did not want her back. They said "I'm not coming to get her!" and "put her in a box and she will die". So I kept her. She did NOT die and it's been 2 months. She's WONDERFUL...

    Just recently adopted two ringneck doves, both about 7 weeks old. I adore them and have had them for around four days. They're eating well, drinking, defecating, etc. I am ready to allow them to explore around my room and begin to hand tame them. Any advice on how to start and what to do?? The...

    Hello! Adopting my dove tomorrow, and I opened the tube of Calcium grit from Kaytee just a few minutes ago and noticed a rather strong smell. It doesn't smell like rotten or anything, just kinda weird. Maybe it's because this is the first time it's been opened? Any help would be appreciated...

    Hallo again! Planning on just using water from water bottles, but that can get costly. Is it safe to use fish tank water dechlorinator? Or this: https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-AvianSafe-Conditioner-4-Ounce/dp/B005DGHHSE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495214770&sr=8-1&keywords=bird+water+conditioner...

    Hallo! I'm planning on adopting a Ringneck Dove soon, and I've got what I need as far as information on housing, hygiene, etc. but I was wondering if it would be ok to just simply get a lone Ringneck Dove? I don't have the money to own to of them, and I just wanted to know if owning a lone...

    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
  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I just need a list of what I need to own a Ringneck dove. I'm getting really confused because many different sites each show that doves need something different than the last. Preferably not the most expensive things out there. Thanks in advance, Taubee :o
  19. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hallo again! Aaa, I've got a quick question. What are the best/most recommended perches for ringneck doves? And how many do they need? Some people say they only need 1 or 2, a round and a flat. Any help would be appreciated! I know it's kind of a basic question, but I just want to double check.
