  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, We found a critically injured pigeon with noticeable wounds and seriously injured legs being attacked by a crow - feathers all over the place. It was on a school playground so we moved it into a box and kept it safe outside overnight. It's still alive but in very bad shape. What do we...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a relatively big dove in my backyard. When I saw it, it tried to fly away but it fell down as if it has high. I checked it and it's not injured, it looks like it's dying or passing out. We gave it a little water but after that it passed out. I don't know if it is sick or it's time for...

    I was placed in charge of a young pigeon today and have no clue how to care for it. It apparently fell through a ceiling tile in an office today and the people who found it put it in a box and were taking it outside in a hope that its mother would come and (I'm not sure where the got this idea)...

  6. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I've been covertly feeding the feral buildings behind my apartment building for years. I go out late at night and throw pigeon seed up on the carport roof. It makes a noise so I have to do it around 3 am when everybody else is asleep. If I don't stay up that late, I'll go out during the day...

    Maybe someone can shed some light on this problem. My baby pigeons die, sometimes a few days after hatching and some after a few weeks. I have lost four now. The older ones seem completely healthy and happy, eating and squeeking, then within a day they are very week or dead. I have one at the...
  8. General Discussions
    One of my squeakers is shaking, non-responsive, and vomiting foam. I noticed him shaking last night, but I figured he was just cold so I put the blanket over his cage and when I went to check on him this morning he was basically unresponsive, he just lay there shaking and sort of stiff. I took...

    I have about 40 white homing pigeons. They hatch eggs and the babies look healthy than they all die between 2-3 weeks old. All summer long. They all die within this 2-3 week window.
