  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello Pigeon Lovers! I recently discovered a nest, parents and 2 babies outside my window in a planter attached to my high rise building back in mid March. I have had front row seats to their entire lives the past 6 weeks and I've loved every minute. The mother left awhile ago, but the dad has...

    Hello all. My neighbour built himself a pigeon coop 2 years ago. I've attached a picture. I started getting these annoying little flies around the same time, they jig around in the centre of the room / area in a fairly random fashion. I think they are lesser houseflies. Initially, I thought...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Ever since one of them got a pigeon fly / flat fly (dunno) from who knows where, every other pigeon around my apartment seems to have it, maybe at the same time, maybe not (could just be 1 fly hopping pigeons). How do I get rid of them? I can't capture the pigeons or otherwise hold them down...

  7. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    One of my ringneck doves has a pigeon fly and I can't get rid of it. Its disgusting and freaking me out - and it can not be nice for the dove. :eek: How can I kill the nasty thing? It it really big and moves like a crab over my doves body. When I try to get it the thing goes into the doves...
  8. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    So do lice flies tend to prefer sickly pigeons? Or can they be found on even the healthiest of feral pigeons? I re released my feral pigeon Lilly after I nursed him back to health and I saw him today with a couple of lice flies on him. I'm worried it may be a sign that he is getting sick again...
