    Hi, I have recently purchased a house. The owner kept pigeons in the shed and I have no idea how to clean it. I have head that it could contain diseases. Is there a chemical I can use to neutralize any disease that could be present? And what type of mask would I use. Thanks for any help.

    Feral Pigeons were looking a place to nest on my balcony, and the few spots they picked first, I threw away the sticks and then bought a box, put it in the corner with cardboard which they found and made a next. Eggs hatched 1-2 weeks ago and the nest is becoming a mess with flies and mites...

    I went to my uncle's place and I took back a water container that is mine (my uncle wasn't using it) BUT it has been sitting outside for like 4 months and it has a lot of algae and green/brown stuff on it. My question, what should I use to clean it? My first thought, dish soap but I read that...

    Hello! I've been thinking lately while I look at my doves. What makes them shine? I love it when I clean their cage, give them fresh water and seed, and give them a nice mist bath. Then they look all smooth and clean in a clean enclosure and that really seems to make them look beautiful and...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have 2 baby pigeons on my balcony. These past couple days they've started walking around playing while the mom is away. I've guessed them to be maybe 3 weeks old. I was wondering if it's OK to clean the mess of poop in their nest if they're on the other side of the balcony?

So they need to have the privilege of taking a bath whenever they want. Now since I stay out or even if I...
