    Sadly i don't think i can get them. I'm so enthralled with doves and Portuguese Tumblers, even having 1 or 2 would make me so satisfied. I yearn for the companionship of having doves or pigeons. I have 3 cockatiels and 2 budgies, and i'm severely bonded with all of them. Even though some of...

    I am desperately trying to find homes for 4 beautiful, healthy, playful 2 y.o. kitties. They can be fostered/adopted separately or together. Time is of the essence as an eviction is threatened. Their owner is ill, out of work and a great animal lover. She is threatened with eviction if she...

    Before you Get Your First Cat Getting a cat for the first time involves a lot more than just picking one out. Cats are not necessarily the self-sufficient creatures some people think, and you need to be take several things into consideration before making the monumental move of sharing your home...

    Every couple days, I let my doves fly around the living room/kitchen area for a bit. 2 of my cats are usually interested enough to hang out to "observe." I supervise the situation very closely, both cats are very responsive to the squirt bottle :) They learned quickly to give the doves lots...

    Today, one of them ate MY eared dove. She came to feed every day. I've put some feed for her, to see if it actually was her, but she isn't coming :(. She was always around here and she almost immediately ate the food. I am SO pissed. It really hurts. I saw feathers scattered around my garden...

    I tracked down a little mini electric fence that is designed to go on aviaries and was wondering if anyone else uses an electric fence and if so how they set it up. My neighbours' cat can get in and out of my sputnik trap (he's an athletic kitty, none of the other neighbourhood cats can do it)...

Have bought it in warmed it up on my Aga - is now in a little cage hanging above the Aga to keep warm... now what? I breed chickens...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there, This bird appeared in our back garden about three weeks ago. It wasn't injured, ill or overly hungry or tired, that we could see. It didn't have a band on it's leg. We thought that perhaps it took a shine to our chickens(or their food) but other than that, know nothing about it. I...

    today a cat (neighbour's, GRRR...) ;) was slinking found the aviary and I was worried that it may have left some traces of germs or toxins. I am considering disinfecting the whole cage, but that seems kind of pointless since I cleaned it only a few days ago... :mad: Hermes and his mate have a...

    When Kit Kit was a kitten he made his way towards a vase of lilies in my living room, all set to play with them. I had heard from a friend that her mother associated feline contact with lilies with the subsequent death of the cat, but I had forgotten that. Luckily John had been reading about the...

    Hi, I have a problem with some stray cats, they keep getting into my garden and climbing certain trees the doves make nests in. I've already rescued a baby dove who had her wing mauled from (I'm assuming) a cat attack. Is there any way I can cat proof these trees so cats won't climb them? I...

    These birds are the first I've acted as "guardian" since I water plants in the backyard. I think they're Mourning Doves, as I figured from Wikipedia. I live in California, in the blazing Central Valley. The parents notice me but don't get spooked unless I accidently move too fast/close because I...
