  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, I live in Pakistan and i have a pigeon couple in a pretty decent cage. Around Feb, the female laid two eggs and they hatched last month. The chicks seemed to be doing fine and coming on strong and healthy and are currently around 12-15 days old. But yesterday, i happened to look closer into...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello there. The other day I've picked up a young collared dove. It is about 3-4 week old I suppose, totally fledged, but still having some yellow fluff, and even able to eat by itself. The thing is that the juvenile's sitting almost motionlessly all the time, only grooming its feathers...
  3. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    I've rescued, rehabilitated and released quite a few wild birds over the years but the few chicks passed from shock so I'm a bit lost as I've never dealt with a bird this young. I have a baby wood pigeon - around 3-5 days old from the guide - that was found on the ground. Couldn't find the nest...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    About 3 weeks ago I found a pigeon nest in my garden. This pigeon had frequently been visiting my garden after we'd watered the garden often to drink the excess water. It laid 2 eggs over the course of a day, and we noticed that there wasn't a male pigeon. We assumed this was normal and went on...

    Homer male and roller female laid eggs and hatched one baby about a month ago. This is my first hatchling since I am very new to this. I also realize I didn't want those 2 to mate and have since purchased a hodge lodge of rabbit hutches (because that is faster than building a bunch of pigeon...

    Here's an album of Puff and Rooty's new chick. Just hatched last night. There's a short video of the little thing wiggling around getting fed. This one will be kept warm no matter what. No more night of the living dead pigeons. :) I must say, it's been nice having the giant parrot cage...

  12. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    So I'm really wondering if I ever should have gotten into pet pigeons. Is everybody else's experience just a bottomless well of tragedy? My last two 'pretty pigeons' - the ones from the first batch of 9 - let their chick die last night. They've been good parents. They laid two eggs. I added...

    Hi, I started a new thread because I'm a bit alarmed. I hope that's okay. Background: our "oops" chick was born on November 1st and seems to be thriving. I've been calling it Baby Huey because it is so big. I finally picked it up for the first time yesterday and it feels like it weighs almost...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    We have a woodpigion nest on our window sill with one chick in it. Currently it is about 10:30 pm and neither of the parents are on the nest. The chick still has some pin feathers and some adult feathers. At a guess it is probably about 12-20 days old. Is it normal for the parenets to leave the...
  15. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi guys, Some trees were being cut down around our house and i found a chick in amongst the branches on the floor. It had fallen out of the nest, which also cam down with the trees.
