    Hi! I'm new here and have been searching a while for someone to help. I found a young pigeon earlier on the side of a small road leading up to a pub. Unfortunately, it's sibling seemed to have been run over and it wasn't leaving its side. There didn't seem to be a parent around, i'm sure i'd...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello there! I've been a big fan of pigeons for awhile- I like birds but most of the time they're either WAY too needy (parrots) or just too flighty. Pigeons are so underrated and GORGEOUS birds.

  8. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Hey guys this is my first post and I am a NOOB when it comes to all this pigeon stuff. So I am having a problem with some birds in my coop. My brother-in-law gave me two of his 2009 birds to breed so they could have babies in my coop. They bred and layed two eggs, only one hatched but it was a...
  9. Archive - Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I've always loved birds, and I've had some. I had a Wonderful Escapist Canary (he loved to escape from the cage, he was pretty smart for a canary xD. I don't know how he did it though o.O... last time he escaped I think he got a trauma in his head and that's why he died), and three budgies. I...
