    I am here to unfortunately to inform those that followed my journey with my beloved Peep. You guys were the ones to help me raise him, even when it was as difficult as it was. I only felt it was fair that you all knew of his passing, since most of you were so involved with my postings. He...

    Recently found a pigeon sat near my house. It didn't make an attempt to move when I approached but I had to move it somewhere as my cats were around and I couldn't leave it. On the way down to the wooded area where I planned to release the pigeon (I had checked for injuries etc. and found none)...

    Hi there, a few days ago our very old female dove, Lady, passed away quietly. Her mate, Biggles, is all alone now in their cage, and is silent where before he would coo at her all the time. I have noticed some dark discoloration on his head and body since her death, like his feathers are...

    A nest on my balcony which had one 2 week old squab died today. Yesterday when it saw me it came out of its nest and was squeaking, flapping it's wings and pecking at my hand. What could be the reasons of death? I see poop with worms around the nest. Was it sick? The spot is very hidden and...

    Good day all. I would like to find out what's going on with our Laughing Doves in South-Africa. They get really sick, running stomach, then die. After death, we took it to the vet and they said they found only bloated and red spots on the liver, no parasites, they die like 5 and more every day...

I started with a few Nevek show birds and added some tipplers/roller mixes later on. I do not race, I only raise them as a hobby. I let them out to fly every day during the summer and...

    Hello, My Diamond doves are breeding again around this time, but now this being their 2nd clutch this year, the babies are not hatching. The eggs are fertile and the egg shells are seeming to be in good condition. Why wouldn't they be hatching? Their previous clutches last year were perfectly...

    hi everyone, sad news. Some of you may know that I posted a while ago about my pigeons with pox but unfortunately I recently had a chick that was almost completely covered with the pox around her eyes (parents still fed her) and rather suddenly 1 day she just stopped walking/couldn't walk. There...

    So I'm really wondering if I ever should have gotten into pet pigeons. Is everybody else's experience just a bottomless well of tragedy? My last two 'pretty pigeons' - the ones from the first batch of 9 - let their chick die last night. They've been good parents. They laid two eggs. I added...

    Bonnie and Clyde were the only pair of pigeons I had at the time as a newbie and student in school (I still am a student), but I loved them like my best friends.

    I really need help with my rescued dove! So, a woman who works with a rescue group in town rescued 3 doves with injured wings. They will never be able to fly again. She kept them in a glass-enclosed green room which was dirty and clearly unsafe for injured birds. They were there for 2 years...
