  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello! My lovely little boy rock dove (at least, we think he's a boy...four days ago we thought he was a girl:D) is starting to get acclimated to our place. He's pretty good at wearing his diaper. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy more that are cheap? I want to get 3-5 so that...

    I didn't know where to post this. So if I have posted in the wrong place please help direct me! My pigeon outgrew his diaper more then I expected him to do so. I have a gray flight suit I must sell. It's in the size custom wide from avian fashions. I paid about $40 plus shipping. Just asking...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have been thinking about getting my dove started on using bird diapers/flightsuits for a while, and am wondering how good the Avian Fashions leashes are in terms of safety. I know doves are pretty good flyers, so I'm a little worried that the leashes are only held on by Velcro. Though, to be...

    Hey everyone, been a while since I've been able to visit here and I wanted to share an update on the feral pigeon I rescued from the big city. September 16th 2011 I found and rescued Belle, sore, missing all but 2 tail feathers, couldn't fly and I couldn't just walk away and leave her so I...

    Hi all, Coalie is my and my fiance Rick's pigeon. I've had him since just before Father's Day a year ago. I ordered a PGWear pigeon diaper for him a couple weeks ago from www.birdwearonline.net. For those who don't know, she makes them custom according to your bird's measurement. It arrived...

    This effort was for Vasp and other members who have been asking about DoveWear Diapers. Finally got a handle on fitting these little guys. It is much like PGWear, but a lot smaller! The dove's smaller physical make up needed consideration. This little gal is rehabbing inhouse and has been the...

    Earlier today my boyfriend found an adolescent pigeon on the university campus. It was sitting on the ground. He took it home and it does flap it's wings and move around a bit, but it's left leg is injured. At the "knee" it is fat and swollen and discolored green. He can't move his toes or...

    I'm going to get my little Pecky some PG Wear, however, she is only 8 weeks old. Will she grow any more? When do feral pigeons stop growing? She's about 290 grams, but hasn't really seemed to put on any more weight for the last few weeks. She isn't skinny..her keel isn't sharp, but she does...

    The two babies I hand raised I am on keeping. But I don't plan to place them in the loft with the parents. I was thinking keeping them more in the house than outside. Past couple of days they have been wondering into my room in the morning. I just keep them in a box though they can't fly they...

    A lot of you guys mention letting your birds just have free roam (if not all the time at least for spurts). Do you just not care about poops? This is a real question, not trying to put anyone down. I am a clean FREAK. Like it's really bad, I am obsessive compulsively clean. Do you just deal with...
  13. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hi, I have a pigeon that needs a good home. I have kept him as a personal pet. My husband has been very tolerant but has been sick since this little guy grew his feathers in. I hand raised him. He wears a flight suit at times. He is tame....a little weary of strangers, but will...

    Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I last checked in... Hope all is well. Quick question... Will it be OK if I clip my bird's flight feathers? I'll tell you why I want to do it. She has the run of the house, no cage. She has always done very well. Usually, she poops in the kitchen on the...

    I have had the unfortunate opportunity to be bit ill lately. Had to spend the last two days in bed. I discovered the tenacity and concern that Betti showed while I was too sick to know. She perch on me for over 24hrs just taking time to run eat something and then fly right back. Whoa to the wary...

    Ok, here's the story: I'm an American expat living in Paris, France. I've been into taking care of my (extended) neighborhood flock of pigeons for years and years. This means distributing around eight pounds of grain daily and offering room and board for the injured and sick. Over time, I've...

    Hi everyone! One week ago now I found a young pigeon that couldn't fly or even walk. She was in a busy train station, so I knew immediately I should help her. I put her into a box and took her with me. She is still a baby, but has "grown up looking" gray feathers, with some yellowish baby...

    I was thinking lately, that the basic 'harness' of a Pigeon Diaper, probably could be added to, or the design modified, to allow a support for steading a wangley PMV kind of Neck, or keeping it from 'Star Gazing'. Anyone here using the 'Pigeon Diapers', and, do the Pigeons seem to be...

    My pigeon Georgia lives with two cats, but not without my watchful eye - it's a wonder this is the only time this has happened. However, I must have missed something, because I just discovered my pigeon with blood on her abdomen and right wing. I have uploaded pictures with this post (the...

    Because I just saw a homing pigeon with the ferals wearing one. He or she is sort of reddish-white but is distinctly wearing the newest fad, I believe. Someone around here has got homers. I've got to find out where. They're starting to pop up everywhere now.
