  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    We've had one girl (Alberta) for about six months and recently thought she might be happier with a companion. We got another female because we didn't want fertilized eggs or any fights, but Alberta is constantly after the new girl (Jewel). I was told to keep them together in a box at night and...

    I have a small pigeon coop (kit box style) with 5 white homers. They are just kept as pets and for flying (as I love seeing the white birds flying in the sky around my home). I am having a big problem with the dominant male bird seriously bullying the other birds to the point he in constantly...

    Hello. I am new to being a dove owner. I previously raised cockatiels, but that was 18 years ago. I have been wanting a dove for a long time. My vet has one in her office and I fell in love with Pandora. I have been looking everywhere and had been unable to find one. I finally found a guy...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello again, I've asked a couple questions here within the last week. I had said in a post earlier that I had rescued a wild pigeon. I finally got a good look at it today and I don't think it will be able to be released. Part of its wing is torn off and it can't fly properly. There are no...

    Hello everyone, I was recently reading up on something called a pecking order. Where a new pigeon will come in and out of the pigeons they will decide whos "in charge" by chasing each other and trying to fight each other? Has this happened to anyone before and will a female fight a male to...

    Hi, i have a male and female dove who have been with each other for awhile now. I was force to separate the female for about a month time because she became ill. Now when i try to put them together they fight, the female becomes the most aggressive while the male just does his territorial dance...

    I've just seen a video of a friends rescue ferals all bathing together and can't believe there's not one squabble amongst them. My two feral boys are always fighting if they're out together, they tolerate the tumbler male but not each other. My friend says it because they're brothers but they're...

    Just a quick question this time - will two hens get along with a cock in the same cage? Or will one hen pair up with the cock and then the pair picks on the other hen? Just wondering, right now I have a hen and cock in one cage, bonded together, and I'm considering adopting/rescuing an unwanted...

    Well, the worst case scenario has occurred and my two new Jacobins are both male. I didn't get the DNA test done, in fact I'm still waiting for it to arrive in the mail. I don't think I need a test now (but still willing to do it if needed). A couple of days ago the one I knew was male started...

    Fiona Jr, an obvious male, and Buzzy, who just laid her first egg, are biting each other viciously. Buzzy wing slaps Fiona Jr too. I swapped out the real for a fake egg but they were already fighting. I put in some alfalfa grass and torn newspaper. Fiona Jr doesn't get sitting on the egg. Buzzy...

    My knowledge of pigeon behaviour is pretty limited so far. I've noticed males courting females among ferals, but not much else. Now I have Jacobins, whose heads and necks are fully or partially covered in their hood feathers. I bought an adult male and an unsexed juvenile who I'm now suspecting...

    HELP!!! Doves wont stop fighting Hi, I have had a female dove for about a year and a half, recently (within the last few months) she has begun laying egg, even though there was no male, and making a barking noise a lot (I looked up and found that it meant she isn't happy... not sure if that is...

    About a month and a half ago I got a female ringneck to hopefully be a mate for my male. They were both lone birds, I got them checked out by my vet and they seemed eager to meet up once they became neighbours. Sounds good, right? Well apparently not. El, the female, seems to only find humans...

    I have have had 2 rickneck doves for 7 months. I was told they were females but they bow-coo and never laid eggs so I assume they are actually two males. They have always gotten along. We did not know their age when we got them, but for 7 months they have gotten along. They preen each other, do...

    I hope someone can shed some light on whats is going on with my 2 racing pigeons :) I have a pair of racing pigeons and they have recently hatched out 2 eggs. Babies are now 12 days old. They both were looking after the babies perfectly up until a week ago. My male is now not letting my...

    Hello!

So I now have "him") both are indoors, Emmet is in his own large dog crate, while Cleo is in a...

    I have been keeping six homers in a fairly small loft and they have been getting along mostly reasonably for months but lately a few of the larger males have been brutalizing two of the smaller, more timid males. Three of the males are larger white pigeons and one (which is clearly the top dog)...

    We recently put our two pet pigeons together. Our first bird, Stevie (a white homer) is bullying our second bird Avery (some kind of fancy pigeon). Stevie pecks Avery when he tries to eat. This has been going on for about five days now and seems to be getting worse. I can separate them but I got...
