    Hi everyone, I would like to ask you if you knew if I can "mix" two birds in the same large cage. Both are rescues and were hand reared so there is no chance they will make it back in the wild. They are different kinds of birds though. One is a very small Croaking Ground-Dove (Columbina...

    So as the title says, I found this poor guy dead on our upstairs barn floor. Ferals have been living inside our barn for as long as we can remember, and we welcome them. However, with this guy dead I am worried that the flock could be diseased now. In addition, the dead guy was AWFULLY thin...

    Would a feral make a good pet? What would be the best age to raise from for this? I see lots of pigeons nesting under a parking garage near here. A few babies have died now. I'm wondering if I should take one and raise it either for release or to keep as a pet. It's a tough place for pigeons. I...

    Here is the scoop. A pair of pigeons have nested on my balcony and are sitting on eggs that I think are due to hatch in about a week or so. They also have two older "kids" that roost here as well. What can I say, I am a sucker for wildlife. Except that I am quite certain the little buggers...

    Hello, I bought a pair of homers a couple of days back from a person who had only 9 birds. PMV hit his small but sweet coop last month. PMV cost him 6 birds so he came to me and said I can't take it any more and don't know what to do so sold the remaining three pigeons to me. One bird died at...

    I have some feral pigeons I rescued as squabs. Any harm in letting them fly with the homers here at home?

    The man who runs the local MFA told me the other day that I could trap some pigeons that lived there. I know I cant fly the ones I catch, but what about the offspring? If given the chance will the offspring fly off as well?

    Hey everyone, We picked up a red and white crested pigeon of some sort that was dropped off at the Edmonton Wildlife Rehab Society after being found as a stray. She's very pretty. In addition to our resident flock of 12 and my house pigeon, we also currently have a feral being...

    VALentino was brought to me by my friend who found him in her back yard not able to fly. Turns out, he had broken off flight feathers on his right wing! I had no idea or desire to pull out these broken feathers and decided to let him grow new ones. Little did I know that this whole process would...

    Hey everyone, This is my flock a few weeks ago on a warm day (rare!) having a bath. I refilled their water and they piled into the dish, so I gave them a basin as well. Most of them are ferals that couldn't be released. A few are homers that were found and taken to the Humane Society...they...

    As you may know, my mother has been trying to kick my rescues out of the house. She told me to ask at a petstore. I did, and they told me that if I brought them there I could sell them. I told him they are just plain feral rescues so that you couldn't fly them or anything, and he told me he...

    Hi there. I finally got in contact with an avian vet who is dedicating to pigeons! We talked about the possibilities of my pijjies. He told me that my city was a great place for release, but just not IN the city. We have many rural areas around it where my birds would be able to find food. But...

    Now that altgirl35 has sent me small syringes (which were the initial problem for deworming: here we don't have syringes smaller than 10ml or at least they aren't for sale) should I try to take them to the vet and deworm them? They wanted to deworm them with ivermectin, but they said that the...

    I don’t know how Maggie does it. I put vitamins in her water which turns it yellow. The next time I look at the water some of it’s down, but the water is completely clear. Either she’s using her beak as a sieve for the water to mine the vitamins out and throwing the water back in the water...

    ...don't release a pigeon in an aparment complex! I took Paloma, Harlequin, and Maggie down to CoyoteJoe's today. Maggie (about 4 wks old) came right out of the carrier and was thrilled to fly. This is the first time she's been able to fly since she was born because I've had her "quarantined"...

    I've caught the last of my ferals - Paloma, the hen I hand-raised about 18 months ago, her mate Harlequin, and their little one, Asia. CoyoteJoe is being gracious enough to take them and provide them with a safe home...out of danger of being poisoned by my apartment complex managers. But, I...
