    Hi all, I've been feeding the ferals regular wild bird seed up till now when someone suggested I feed a pigeon-specific mix. The brand she uses is Brown's (http://www.fmbrown.com/bird_Pigeon_Thrifty.htm), which I couldn't find locally, so I ended up with Baden, which looks to have similar...

    Hi guys I'm new here. I've always wanted a pigeon. So once I saw an ad on craigslist with someone having a free pigeon I got it. The thing is the guy said he rescued the bird so it's a wild bird. It's been in captivity for about three years. The person I got it from said he tried releasing him...

    Hi everybody, I'm new here, this is my first post. I have been wanting a pigeon/Dove for a few years now, and I am finally preparing to get one. I live just outside of Philadelphia, PA.

    I bought 2 pairs of old german owls and 1 pair (male female hopefully) of gazzi modenas at the Sturbridge Show earlier this year. Currently they're being kept in the basement until I complete their loft. The past 4 days I've noticed 2 eggs on the floor of the cage (a 6ft. long X 3ft. wide X 5ft...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I came across a pigeon who was just sitting in the middle of the street. I knew there was something wrong when he did not move as a car approached it. I flagged the car to stop and rush to protect it from other cars approaching (i live in a very poor neighborhood, so animal care is not a top...

    I have a pair of modenas ('07) and 2 pairs of old german owls (07) and am not sure exactly what to feed them. The breeder who gave me the old german owls suggested a seed mix that Brown's makes that was 16% protein and contained no corn or large seeds. He said the German Owls would prefer...

    Hi, Been trying to figure out how to help this pigeon for days... This is about a 6 year old pigeon that is 'free-roaming' (not sure about the term, but lives in the wild with other birds). Recently I've noticed one of his wings doesn't sit right compared to the other one or the rest of the...

    Hi everyone I have a few questions for you about my birds diet. I think I have been feeding them too much cuz I always have seed on the floor or lift over. Is not bad I just would like to try not wasting as much. So I would like to know: How many times a day should I feed them? How much per bird...

    Once again I've a couple questions about the pigeon my daughter brought home awhile ago-I'd asked recently if the nails should/could be clipped and I did clip his a bit.I could see that part of his nails were a little different coloured at the tip so I clipped that off and hoped it would be...

    Yesterday I brought home my first pet doves. I believe these are ringneck doves, pure white wedding birds. Of course, they are untrained, unbanded, and pretty much just...pretty. They aren't tame. They also aren't in their own aviary yet. I have so much to do, and the chickens are so upset...

    I have unexpectedly become the guardian of a pigeon. He is an adolescent or young adult and I don't know his history. (For that matter I'm not sure its a he.) One of his wings has been damaged and he is not able to fly, or even flutter. It was not broken and he is healthy and lively and in...

    My mom has been doing this for years. She puts her bird seed in the freezer after she buys it and leaves it there for a few days. Then when she needs it she lets it thaw and uses it. She swears by it and says if you do this your food won't get wormy. She said that her uncle told her this trick...
