  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hey guys! So I have a flock living on the roof & some have lice. I was going to start applying Borax to their bath water trays - 1 tbsp. per gallon, right? There's lot's of chickadees birds around too, will they be fine drinking the water too? There's also bees around and I heard that borax...
  2. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    This evening I have found an adult pigeon that is very injured. I think it had a close encounter with a car, and one leg has a pretty bad break. The break seems rather high up on the leg, perhaps even above the knee. The part of the leg below the break is dangling free, and the foot was...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi one of the feral pigeons that lives in the alcove of my building has flat flies. I read online about a spray but although the pigeon is friendly with me I don't think he will let me spray him. I'm very fond of pigeons and of this one in particular. He hangs out on my windowsill everyday, I...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello wonderful pigeon lovers, On my way home tonight I saw a pigeon in the middle of the street obviously having some difficulty. The wildlife rehab center opens at 9am, but until then I'd love some advice. The pigeon was meandering in the street, made no attempt to fly, and had its head...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    http://i.imgur.com/lJY6PR8.jpg This bird was put into this box 5 hours ago. My boyfriend saw it through the window on the ground with its mother, (learning to fly no doubt) but she was away for over 15 minutes and a cat was going for it, so he brought the baby in. We tried leaving it in the...
  6. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    8 days ago I found a dove missing his wing near my home. I took him to a wild life center in Austin, but as all they do is release birds into the wild they could only euthanize him. He is friendly and the wound seems to be completely healed. He eats happily and has gotten very strong. If...
  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello. I put a note about this in the emergency forums, but I found a feral dove missing one wing. When I brought it to a wildlife rehab center, they said that all they could do was euthanise him. He's been at my house about 3 days now, and is eating and doing pretty well, but I think he...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I found a bird yesterday missing a wing. I brought him to a rehab center, but they can only euthanise him. He is alert and eating, but I don't know how to care for him. If I can find a place to take him that would be best, but I am open to caring for him if there are no other options. I...
  9. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    Greetings. I have two wonderful rescued (slightly disabled) feral pigeons whom need a home. They have been with me living indoors for over a year as weather and neighbors have driven them indoors and into hiding to recover from injury.

  10. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Last year I found a pigeon in my yard that was really weak and it just sat there (sometimes I feed the wild birds because I am weak) and when they get really hungry they come and beg in front of my fly loft door and this one just sat there no moving but alive in the winter time and I try to feed...
  11. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    need advice I have a question. I found my pigeon, Icarus, under a bush, hurt. He's an "old" squeaker. He was very docile when I first brought him home, but now that he's healed, he's getting wilder. I'd been letting him fly in & out the window for exercise, thinking he would actually FLY...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Kay the title is mostly for laughs but now moving into the serious part. Today I went on the balcony after hearing some noise, I thought it was Chewy sicne he's been visiting recently, well anyway the pigeon I saw WASN'T Chewy. The pigeon was sort of a light coffee/caramel color both the feet...
  13. Show Pigeons
    Hi all, I've been searching this site for about a week or two now and am hooked. My daughter, Kimberly, is 14 and has found a love for pigeons. We started looking for Old German Owls but couldn't find any locally. I got a call from the woman who runs our local feed store and she had a...
