  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, two of my pigeons seem uninterested in sitting on their eggs (they did that last time, too, but they're young and this is their second clutch). One of my other pigeons decided that nest was a perfect place to lay her own egg despite there being a seperate nest just for her and her mate (no...

    I’m new to dove owning and have only had Joan for 9 months. I got another bird, Cosette, in November. I named her a girl name because the breeder didn’t know her sex. About Joan: she laid her first egg last night at about 9:20pm. The next morning she was acting as a normal bird would with her...

    This is my pair of dove's first clutch together. They were due to hatch yesterday, and when I checked one had pipped so today I checked to make sure they are still alive. They are (for now) but one of them the whole top of the shell is now gone! There is now a little 'shrink wrapped' baby half...

    My female fantail ( who is mated to my male ) laid two eggs ten days ago. We are going to try and have babies, however my main concern is that one of the eggs is bigger than the other. I think I read that is normal but I wanted to make sure. Also the female is currently laying on the eggs...

    We just found our pigeon on the floor, gasping for air and very limp. I have no idea what happened, she was perfectly normal one minute and suddenly we come back to her like this!!!! She is breathing very fast and closes her eyes. Where I live, bird vets are almost non-existent and have been...

    At the end of May I found a 4 1/2 week old king left in the park. Couldn't fly more than about a foot off the ground. Probably bought from a nearby market (and then left by a pond with a nearby active Raven's nest and the occasional off-leash dog). Had to be hand-fed. After a lot of triage for...
