  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I found a baby pigeon in Mumbai, India. It had fallen out of it's nest and was injured on it's left side. I took it in and gave it some seeds and water. I let it explore the house and it tried to fly and got hurt. It just stays in it's cage now and never comes out of it. It can't fly at all. And...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK Hi All, First of all, can I just say how wonderful it is to see this forum still up and running. Up until about 8 years ago, as a 'pigeon parent' I was very active on these forums--back when it was pigeons.com and then transitioned to pigeons.biz. I was a 'senior...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I am a high school teacher and a pair of pigeons recently raised a baby on the pillar outside of my classroom. I'm a bird lover by nature and obviously became attached to the little family as baby bird grew. I noticed right before Thanksgiving break while baby bird was still in the nest that his...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi Everyone, This is my first post. I had pigeons nesting on my balcony (it's a constant fight to try to stop them and they invariably win - this time they laid their eggs even though I had thrown away all of their collected sticks and twigs - so I gave in, and they built the nest around the...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?

  6. General Discussions
    Several months ago I wrote of adding a heat source to my loft because I had a winter baby I did not want to lose. It worked out well at first but because of the INSANE fluctuating temperatures we've had this winter , having 50+degree days and then days in the single digits in the same week ...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, I found a feral fledgling about 4 weeks old. For simplicity, I'm calling it a 'her'. I've got her warm and Ive been rehydrating her... BUT I CAN'T GET HER TO EAT. It's been about 18 hrs now. I've got some millet mix (for budgies) with grit and crumbled peanuts in one bowl and...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found a squab two months ago in Las Vegas, hiding behind flowerpot on concrete patio. It was there the day before and we did not want to disturb it. The next day the poor thing was laying on its side so I scooped it up into a box and brought it inside our 500sf apartment. He/she's now flying and...
