dovecote

  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    We got our doves in February, and although they seem very content here, they don't go inside the dovecote, preferring to perch on window ledges at night. They feed at the dovecote, but then fly onto the roof of the house. We did have a couple of eggs early on, but they rolled out onto the...

    I have a large freestanding dovecote and about ten normal white doves. In previous years they have bred prolifically. But this year the crows have arrived and eat the eggs or babies so none born at all. I have placed steel spikes at the entrance to all the holes but to no avail. The crows learn...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'm pretty new to dove keeping but have been really enjoying getting fantails settled into a garden dovecot. We had 6 and then raised a squeaker to maturity. Then two more eggs hatched and those two squeakers are now about 3 weeks old and still staying mostly in the pophole. The parents of these...

    Hi, My dovecote is finally erected! I think it looks gorgeous:D Now, the question is what to do next..... wait to see 'if' the adult white homers adopt it, or their youngster who sleeps on the roof of our house adopts it. Mum and Dad do live elsewhere nearby but although their youngster goes...

    Hi everyone, Following on from my introductory post yesterday telling you about the pigeon born in my gutter - he has returned again today and has settled down for the night underneath part of my roof- it is only partially sheltered. I think he'd like to make it back to the gutter box in which...

    Not sure if anyone can help, but I'm getting a bit desperate. I live in the UK and have free flying tumbling doves that live in a dovecote. I've managed to bred them this summer to fill the dovecote - 9 was the maximum total. However, since the summer I've had a really bad spate of loosing one...

    Hi, Can anyone help? I have always had a love for birds but know very little about them. Like a lot of people I love to watch them in the garden and always put out food and water. We have a nice secluded garden and I would like to introduce a pole dovecote with perhaps a couple of pairs of...
