  1. General Discussions
    Hi, I was in a discussion about keeping pigeon in winter. In Islamabad,Pakistan temperature goes as low as -3C. I always cover my loft to avoid direct wind exposure, but keeping ventilation . My point is, pigeons are warm blooded and they may survive in very cold weather but they will use their...

    Hi everyone - happy to have found an active pigeon forum and hoping you may be able to give me a bit of guidance. I moved to a new home a few days ago, the property has a coop that has chickens on one side and pigeons on the other. We wanted the previous owners to leave the chickens and I'm well...

    I will try to make a longer story short. We were in and around our pool this summer and a pigeon flew onto our diving board right by a lot of activity and acted as if it was going to try to nose dive into the pool. Being stunned by this behavior I was afraid the bird was delirious and that it...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I live in the Texas Panhandle, where we have been having very low temperatures coupled with high winds and snow. There are some Ringneck doves who come to my yard, along with all the other birds, to eat the food I put out for them each day. This morning I went out to feed and saw two or three...

    Looking for advice on building a loft in MN. We have a pair of West of England Tumblers that my son acquired this winter. They have been living in a large cage indoors but I think they would be much happier outside. Just wondering about venting, insulation/ heating needs. Any advice for a newbie?

    Hey, stuck here in a blizzard (yet again) in Montana... Has anyone ever tried to put a clear doggie door over the entry hole to a kit box? Was thinking about this idea the other day as the wind was roaring to cut down on drafts, today we have wind and snow. Wind is just hitting the front of...

    I am new to this website. Here is my question. I live in California and it is starting to get very cold here. My pigeon is living in a cage outside hanging high above so nothing can attack him. Do I need to cover him at night or bring him in? Thank You.

    I have a pair who always nest on the floor. Since it's been warm I let them go with eggs. Tonight its 26 and no better tomorrow and 1 hatched. Hope the parents stay on them. Wish they had nested in a compartment and not so in the open.

    If the pigeons are out of the weather in a loft, how low of a temperature can they take?:confused:
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A beautiful white racing pigeon has been hanging around our front deck for about 4 months. We called animal control the first day we saw him in hopes of returning him to his owner. They sent over some police officers with a large net to catch him; I live in a small town :). Then the bird flew...

    We are facing a cold winter here in Georgia, I have concrete floors in my loft. I wanted to know if maybe I should cover the floors with some thing like pine needles or straw? What are the benifits of both? Any suggestions on the matter?
  12. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello - I was wondering if anybody here keeps pigeons/doves outside in cold climates. Do pigeons lofts need to be heated? I would like to build a small outside coop/loft/kit for my two pigeons (Homer & Birmingham Roller) that they could live in for the winter. Any advice would be great!

    I watched a show on cable TV (forget which channel) last night. It was about "superhumans". Human beings who had abilities or "powers" that were out of the normal human experience and ability. One of them was a blind man, who had been born without eyes. He has never seen anything in his...
