  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    When reading in the park with my dog I noticed a large flock of pigeons. Upon closer inspection I noticed a bunch of them tragically had string/wire/hair/etc. wrapped around their feet, greatly impacting their mobility. A quick google search and I found out that helping pigeons with stringfoot...
  2. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi everyone, I feed the feral pigeons in my garden and have noticed a white one whose leg is injured. His whole leg sticks out straight side ways to his body, so at a right angle. I have watched him from inside the house and his leg moves up and down (whilst stuck sideways) in a very awkward...
  3. Training and Behavior

  6. General Discussions
    Does anybody know a good catching method for my pijjie? Every time I take them out, one of them doesn't allow me to catch it. He used to be the easier to catch, but now I have to corner him and *try* to catch it before it flies away. That takes many many tries, and the other bird gets really...
  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi all. My latest chapter has had me emotionally and spiritually tied up in knots for days now. It had apparently ended so tragically, I didn't have the heart even to post it. Story begins: upon releasing my trio of patients a while back, within a few days arrived a pair of juveniles feeding...
  8. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi all. My parrots freaked while they were hanging out at the living room window today....usually that means they spotted a hawk. I went outside on the sidewalk immediately...looked around...saw a few pidgies high, high up in the sky...then saw some pigeonfeathers descending from the...
