cooing

  1. General Discussions
    Hello! This is my first post to the forum! So glad this resource exists! I adopted a young rescue (~7 months old) a few days ago who has vision problems. I try to make her feel comfortable by playing pigeon cooing videos on the internet. As soon as she hears them, she perks up and starts walking...

    I have a pet pigeon that coos for me constantly all day long. I have rescued a second pigeon to be her mate but it hasn't worked and she continues cooing for me all day. How to i get her to unmate with me so that she can mate to the other pigeon?

    For the past month my pigeon has been cooing non-stop and looking for places to nests. I try making nests but it never works and the cooing never stops. This is a problem because I live indoors in an apartment with her. Will she ever stop cooing? How can I get her to stop? Would getting her a...

    Rescued domesticated pigeon found on road have had him for about a week now, he hasn't been much active he can't fly, it seems like his wings are cut. We had to force feed him the first few days but he's eating by himself now. But now he has started to make very weird noises gulping/puking and...

    Hey all, My male and female mated pair have been acting unusual during this first week as their adopter, and I wanted to ask if you have any insights about their behavior. The female doesn't like hanging out in the nest. The male spends most of his time spinning around in circles, cooing, and...

    Hi all! I just wanted to see what your thoughts were on my pigeon Fergus's behavior. (It's not problematic at all, in fact it's very cute and I'm just curious.) I have a large dog and two cats. None of them are very interested in Fergus himself (although he is NEVER unsupervised outside of...

    Hi everyone! My female dove has always been fairly vocal, but today, she was being very lovey with her mate, and she kept on going through the motions of cooing (filling her crop area with air, and then releasing air) but nothing would come out. After a while, her mate lost interest and walked...

    I'm looking for advice from someone who has kept king pigeons in the past or currently. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information about keeping them as pets even though king pigeons make beautiful pets. I know all pigeons grow at their own rate and all have their own personalities. I'm...
  12. Training and Behavior
    Two wholly separate questions. 1) One of my ringneck doves coos incessantly at 5 AM and it kills me. Is there anyway to train her to let me sleep in. 2) She was sitting on my shoulder puked/regurgitated spinach all over my shirt. I was under the impression that spinach was good for them! Any...

    I know there is no true way of telling what a pigeons gender is, however, there are a few things that suggests that the woody is a female. For example, she never fluffs up her whole neck and bows down, instead she just jumps and fluffs up the back of her neck, she doesn't do the long coo but...

    I know many of you have been fanciers for years, but I'm new, and I just had to share...my young Rio is just learning to coo, and it is absolutely adorable! The funniest part is, he tries to woo Lola, but because he's routinely "bullied" her by pecking her or pulling her feathers when she gets...

    Of my new pair of doves, the one I believe to be male has been doing this "wing-shaking" thing a LOT. And I can't really seem to find much of an explanation online. S/he lowers its' head, makes a raspy coo consisting of two notes, and shakes his wings very quickly. S/he doesn't seem upset...

    Just curious, what exactly does cooing mean? I've got a ringneck and he makes this sound: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbkOqgvqId0 But he stops when I move/come near/enter the room. Is he asking for attention or is he cooing as a sound of happiness and just stop when I'm there because he gets...

    Hi everyone! This is such a great site and you are all so informative! I have a new pet pigeon, an ex-competition Birmingham Roller called Pigeon Joe. He's been with me for almost three weeks and seems happy and well-adjusted. Just recently he has started vocalizing quite a bit more and I'm...

    I haven't been here for a while, but spring is here and I am having major issues with a hormonal bird. I have what appears to be an oddity in the world of ringneck doves - a very, very vocal hen. I keep her by herself and have since I got her as a fairly young bird two years ago (she's never...

    Hello all! I'm getting kind of worried about my Naughty Bird. He has suddenly become very, very vocal. Doesn't sound like a distress call - just the lovely cooing. But it's pretty darn near constant now - and louder, much louder. Any ideas? Thanks!

    sounds, voice, cooing, territory, mood different moods like: Low quiet "brrr/wooo" - a bit scared but not enough 2 fly away, eyes could be wide & feathers flat Cody does this when he hears rainbow lorikeets or other noisy birds in the distance Long "vooo vooo" - on the nest defending territory...
