    Pigeon's feathers colors have changed, is it normal ? Hi everyone ! A pigeon I rescued off the streets a couple or so months ago looked black and white (possibly mainly white). He's molted and now he's mainly black with white only on his head (I'm told piebald) It seems the white and back have...

    I have a 4 day old male squab that was born from one of my pairs. (a white old frill hen x bronze catalonian tumbler cock) I'm really curious what his feathers are going to look like and I was wondering if there was a way to tell, besides waiting for him to grow up? I used to think that grey...

    Hi guys! So my pigeon Ragweed recently went through a molt and has 2 feathers with a white bar across them on his head. He was bobbing his head around, but you can see one near the back of his head, and a second small one just above his eye. The dust is from me preening him as he just about...

    I was told if you pull a coloured feather out, esp when they at young, pin feather stage, it will grow as pure white new one. e.g. if you have a saddle had 1 colour feather on the tail, if you keep pulling it out, it might grow a pure white tail eventually, ofcourse this should happen when...

    Greetings everyone, I was thinking of adopting an Indian fantail pigeon because I think they look beautiful and I was wondering if I could release the fantail with the homers everyday for a daily exercise... I know they don't have a homing instinct, but I read somewhere that they will most...

    Hello, and I really do apologize for being such a newbie at birds. My dove has a blood feather that snapped and was bleeding. I pulled out the entire quill of the feather and now more blood is coming out. Will She be okay? I thought when blood feathers break, they should be pulled out to stop...

    Hello, and it's been a while since I've been here. My Diamond Doves are all doing somewhat fine! I now have a flock of 8 birds! I plan on selling 3 right now. I have the breeding under control and I'm pretty content. Now I have a few concerns that I want to tend to. One of the offspring my...

About a year ago last summer she was attacked by a hawk and was hurt pretty badly, she sprained her leg and wing, complete tail feather loss, neck/head feather loss. She is all better since then...

    Hi all, I'm slowly introducing my non-releasable male pigeon Philly to a new non-releasable pigeon who we very much think is female. The new pigeon is in a kennel (a converted plastic medium dog carrier, sized 28x20.5x21.5" / 71x52x54.6cm) in the middle of Philly's territory. They seem to be...

    I noticed today that my dove has a very weird tailfeather. Its half as long as her normal tailfeathers (hard for me to measure it, but it's at least 3" long), and it's completely barbless/naked. It's still soft and bloodfilled like a new feather, so I think it's still growing. She finished her...

    Several days ago my pigeon started picking his wing and bleeding increased. When I got fed up with amount of blood, I washed her and bandaged the wing. Now, after couple of days of being bandaged, there is almost no bleeding, just a drop or two. But when I change the bandages, the bleeding...

  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everybody, About 25 days ago I found a pigeon on a tree in front of my house that at the time I thought it was about 4 or 5 days (eyes closed). Having never dealt with pigeons, I started searching again and found some sites that recommended a special formula for baby pigeons called Kaytee...
  20. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found an orphaned and starving female feral pigeon on May 12, 2007 that was about a week old, and needless to say, after hand-raising her, she turned into our 'spoiled' baby. Sometime around August of last year I noticed that the feathers on her back, starting right behind her neck, were...
