    Greetings all pigeon lovers! One of the (feral) pigeons that has been living around our apartment building for a long time has had an accident with some sort of glue, apparently white (wood) glue. She was rendered flightless by it. The glue got her tail and flight feathers mostly. We had...

    Hi is there an easy way to help a dove grow its flight feathers back. The situation I have is, one of my doves recently damaged her flight feathers and so cant fly. The wing itself is ok but every time the feathers start growing back she damages them which keeps her in the same condition of not...

    Hey everyone what do white flight feathers mean? Does it mean that if i breed together 2 birds that have white flight feathers that their offspring will be white?

    I just took a few pictures and got a couple of my one and only white bird. I don't think I've ever posted a picture of her. She's my little pride and joy.

    Okay, before I get into this post, I realize it is going to be total speculation as to the answer to the question. I just thought it might be interesting to see what you folks come up with, since most of you have had pigeons much, much longer than I. Take a look at the the birds in the links...

    My little green parakeet Angus is feeling under the weather and is going to the vet tommorow. I noticed yesterday that he was fluffed up and sleepy. Not his usual cheery self. Unfortunately, I have no meds to give him and have been unable to take him to the vet today due to my work shifts. He is...

    Hello to all in this forum. It has been a long time since I have posted, although I have read a lot of the forum. I have been very busy with my blog, trying to help Mike Huckabee win the Republican nomination for President. Since that seems to be lost, at least for this election, I have a bit...

    I took in a lost lahore pigeon today and his wings were clipped, very short and pretty roughly. I let my 3 birds out in the house every day, I caved...and I want him to fly so he can fully enjoy it. How long will it take, do I have to wait until a molt? If so, how long in between molts? Thank you!

    I know we have a lot of new members who are just getting into keeping pigeons, which is great. The "bath" subject has been brought up a lot and while I was changing the water dishes today it reminded me to give out this tip: if you have young, fancy or disabled birds, please provide a platform...

    Hi, Im new to the pigeon world ( 1 month}. I just completed my shed converted loft and just purchased a few YB from a local club auction. I was told to let them eat at will. Is this correct and when should I start rationing there food. I plan on letting them out for a fly this weekend about an...

    I don't know if it is because his flight feathers have not grown back yet or what, but Petey always has trouble drying off after a bath. When everyone else is almost dry & peacefully napping in the sun, I usually find him dripping wet and shivering. So...here's what we do...

    I just found this picture. It's a picture of a racing homer that a member in our combine had a few years ago. He's now had to get rid of all of his birds, but we used to go get our feed from him and I remember seeing this picture hanging in his garage. I never knew it was on the web though...

    I found another baby....i would guess about 3 weeks old. But it already has more green and pink shininess on its neck than pecky has. I guess its probably a boy... Its wing is just hanging completely down... It is outside in an aquarium with a sheet over it. I wanted to see if mum would come...
