  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I recently rescued a wobbly, circling, non-flying pigeon and am keeping it in a cage in my backyard, monitoring its symptoms. I believe it may have Paramyxovirus,as those sure are the symptoms. He's been doing well for the last three weeks, though still a little off-balance. I hope to release...

    So I'm getting pigeons Sunday and we are converting an old chicken coop into a high up spacious pigeon loft, because we just finished painting and building the new chicken coop. However we were just going to keep them together, however my grandpa who raised pigeons for show said you can't. We...
  3. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Here is how it went on a 200 mile release. This pigeon had been released from same place previous. I released a group of pigeons. One returned to cabin after 45 minutes. 3 days later I got a call that a white pigeon, with my number band, was eating with her chickens. Free to leave at any time...

    To whom it may concern, I am very sorry to have to write this open letter on Christmas Eve, but my family and I were horrified, appalled and disgusted today while watching on the Oasis channel one of the "Hope for wildlife" reality series episodes to see Ms. Hope giving a pair of adult chickens...

    I am new here and really like your forum. Some great info and plan on returning regularly. We have a chicken coop and have had two pigeons that share it. We now believe that the pigeons are broody and we are fearful that the chickens will interfere with the baby pigeons when they hatch. What...

    I was walking home from school, when I saw something suspicious across the road. I crossed to investigate, and to my complete and utter horror, there were two little birds lying there, one black, one yellow, with their heads lying behind them. This was obviously a human, because animals just...

    I am new to pigeons, so new I do not yet have one. I will have a bazillion questions but first I have to ask all of you experienced people if they will fit in with my chickens and live together? I have always thought pigeons were beautiful and so peaceful and would be soft to touch. My husband...

    Just thought of another noob question. :o I'm planning on working with several types of pigeon next year. Fancy, not racers. But was also hoping to get some chickens on the property as well. Endangered breeds. Is there any problem with keeping pigeons and chickens near each other? Obviously...

  15. Loft Designs
    Hello everyone! I had a question about housing pigeons with other birds... Here's the situation. I have three pigeons, and two chicks that just hatched at few days ago! The current shoddy little loft that we have is waaaay to small to house this many birds, so we've decided to build a big new...

    Here's some pictures from this and last month. Take a look at my huge "runt" baby at the beginning. He was an only child, but jeez, those breeders fed the stuffing out of him! He sure is big for his age. Could probably easily blend in with the adult racers. Also, pictures of my chickens and some...

    I want to get chickens this week (my birthday present). I had planned to keep them in a pen but I have read they like free range better. We have dogs but they are on chains. Do you think I could let them run free during the day?

    Because I had originally planned on racing old birds this year, I started putting 'fake' eggs under them. Only, of course, they weren't actually fake...because I don't have any dummy eggs (a black snake ate them!). Instead, one pair got a large brown chicken egg, and another pair got a few...

    Hello everybody I currently have a pair of indian fantails. I don't have a special loft so the pigeons stay in the chicken pen. I let my pigeons and chickens free range during the day and both the chickens and the pigeons always come back in the pen when it starts getting dark. Well In the...

    Hello, I just joined this forum to learn as much as I can about pet pigeons. I work for animal control and we often pick up or get calls on pigeons. Sometimes we're able to contact rightful owners, sometime they're not banded and not claimed. I think we've had about eight of them plus a pair of...
