  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    3 weeks ago, a fledgling fell off my roof too early. Over the last 3 weeks, it’s parents have flown down and fed it. A neighborhood cat nearly got it one day (it flew into my pool and I had to get it out) so for the next few weeks, every night I got it into a dog crate I placed outside and every...

    Hello everyone, My question is: if I feed a feral pigeon/dove for several months everyday, but then I have to leave for 10 days, will they die because of it? Mine is an extreme case: I’m specifically referring to an albino ringneck dove that - I strongly suppose - was raised by someone in...

    Hello everyone. I wrote on this forum some time ago about a feral pigeon I’m affectionate to. He lost one of his “fingers” due to a strinfoot injury, but now he’s doing fine. Today, and a few days ago, I noticed a weird ”fly” (it’s slimmer and longer), walking around his body, then hiding...

    Recently, the ferals that live on my balcony have started roosting, which I'm really happy about, but the problem is that they've made their nest right next to the pipe/drain that drains away rainwater, and that spot also has no protection from rain whatsoever. Additionally, it'd be really easy...

    Hello everyone. I hope someone can help me. I found this pigeon who seems very injured, it has a hanging leg that’s facing the wrong way and it’s lacking feathers in a big portion of its back (between its wings). I don’t know what to do? I’m bringing it to the vet as soon as possible but I’m...

    Hi folks! My roommate and I have a nest of feral pigeons on our balcony that we kind of take care of here and there. Funny story, there’s actually 3 of them and they all seem to be in a poly relationship with one another. It’s like a pigeon soap opera on our balcony every day. Anyways, one of...

    Hello everyone, My partner and I picked up a feral pigeon on the 3rd of December. The pigie was picked up as he was spotted in a wet alleyway, he remained there on the floor wet and peeping for about 8 hours. (my partner spotted him on the commute in, and on the way home at night he was still...

    Hi. Today was a sad day as one of the pigeons I've recently brought has passed away - he was sitting most of the time quietly and calmly in the cage, drinking water and eating normally. He did not want to fly anywhere. I found him on a garbage bin at night when it was humid and it was getting...

    Hi there, I rescued a juvenile feral pigeon from the street 11 days ago; it was standing in the street almost being run over. Upon inspection, I realized it was blind due to growth on its eyes and also had the same growth protruding from its ears. The following morning I brought it to a vets'...

    Hi friends! This is not urgent, but if anyone has insight, I'd love to hear. I adopted a feral pigeon from a rescue about a month ago. He/she is estimated to be about 8 months old (we'll be doing a feather test in a few months to determine the sex before adopting a mate). The bird only weighs...

    My baby is 17 days old today and I’m wondering if I should still be feeding him every 2-3 hours. He seems to not want to eat as much (he gets excited for a feeding and eats a bit then doesn’t want anymore), and I’m wondering if I should be waiting longer in-between for feeding now. And if so...

    Hi there! Last night I was out on my balcony when I saw a pigeon flapping wildly and descending from the sky in a spiral. At first I thought it was looking for a place to land, but then it came down hitting some leaves on a tree. A car was blocking my view from that point, so I'm not sure what...

    Back with another question on my newly-acquired indoor pet pigeon: I adopted a white pigeon just about two weeks ago. He's not a king - looks like a release dove. I'm in the U.S., and adopted him from animal services in Maryland. (Animal services usually picks up animals who are homeless...

    Hi there, We've had a pigeon come to us. I don't know the history, but he is having trouble walking. Left leg kind of stretched backwards but also struggling a bit to balance on the right. Vet had a look (but I couldn't be in the room due to Covid-19 restrictions). She said the leg did not seem...
