  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello fellow pigeoneers. I've found only one credible source on this interpretation of brown nostril cere. Asking because my pigeon's has recently gone from white to brown. I'm wondering if it's more likely signs of respiratory problems or that she noticed the cherry blossoms budding. Thank you

    Hello. I live in Upstate NY and my pigeon has been being seen regularly by a vet but I am really confused as to why nothing is working. I noticed his cere beginning to darken at the start of 2017 after we had moved. I'm going to list his symptoms and what me and the vet have tried. I really need...

    A little bit of background; Archimedes is a rescued Utility King Pigeon (found very emaciated as a young adult, presumed to have been released at a wedding and unable to find his loft). Since his rescue in 2012 he was kept at a facility and they never released to me any veterinary care records...

    Hey everyone! I was a member back in 2014-2015 under the username "Koomori" (which can be deleted by admins as I can no longer access that account). I dropped off the face of the planet because my college course work on top of my regular job just got to be too much to handle and I literally...

    You know...when there is a winning bird? What's up with the eye picture? It's nice to see all those lovely ceres but is there another purpose besides showing good health?

    I mean, it's not a puffy white thing that other pigeons have. Is it just cause she's only a month and some old? Is this normal? Also, I want to know what type of pigeon she is :3

    I've been reading around on solutions for pickiness on this forum and some blogs, and it seems people suggest just not refilling the food until they eat all of the seeds. Rex will only eat round grains, which I've read is common, her favorites are peas, she leaves behind the wheat and I believe...

    Hi everyone, This is my dads' pigeon Ivan, he is approximately 20 years old. He has some concerning growths under and alongside his beak. The first one appeared under the beak a couple of months ago and was attributed to old age..but now there are more on both sides of his beak. They don't...

    Hi. I've already posted a thread about this bird and got some great advice. its just I'm really worried because this pigeon was nearly dead when I found him. I've had him on baytril now for the past 12 days and he seems to have gotten a lot better but his cere is still very dark. Its dark grey...

    Hello, I'm asking again for some advice for someone new to pigeons. After I lost 7 out of 9 of the first pigeons I brought home (two from deaths, the rest flew away after I was assured they would return home because they had never flown), I brought home 16 more on 10/15. A lot, I know, but I...

    We recently took on some quite old homing pigeons as a favour to one of our breeders- they are retirement age and he didn't want to snuff them or have them eaten by a snake, as often happens if you sell them at auction. Anyhow, they have quite large, somewhat irregular ceres. I just want to...
