  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello, all. I picked up a wood pigeon with a dragging wing a couple of weeks ago. She's recovering and is slowly getting movement back in her wing. The vet advised I should put her in a larger enclosure, so I've made a makeshift aviary in a trailer for the time being. It's large enough that...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi all, I'm new to the world of pigeons so please forgive my ignorance. Recently moved into a new apartment in September (Toronto, Canada). My boyfriend and I have noticed two wild pigeons that habitually return/sleep on our bedroom balcony. Because we don't use the balcony, we've decided to...

    I put my 2 pigeons outside in an aviary with a covered entry to our shed that has their cage on the inside of the opening. They don't don't go in at all though, even when it's raining and they appear cold. Anyone have an idea why? Is that normal? Vanessa

    My daughter recently got a pair of Syrian Coop Tumblers (young hen, old cock). The male started making an odd noise yesterday. It literally sounds like he is going "beep beep".
