  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi, We had a pigeon camped out in front of our (busy) office for 24 hrs - (60 degrees - So Cal USA) I had 2 animal control officers come and both said they would just euthanize so I took him. It doesn't appear wings are broken but Keel bone is sticking way out. I think he's just young, hungry...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, My family and I have been caring for an injured wild dove unable to fly for two and a half weeks now. We want him to regain flight and freedom, so we have not tried to tame him or give him reason to lose his fear of humans. We have not lost hope, but it has been two weeks with no...

    I've asked to adopt a flightless pigeon from a shelter. None of my pigeons have handicaps. Any advice on this situation. He will need little ladders to climb between our outdoor aviary and large indoor shed/loft (there is a pigeon overpass separating the two about 5 feet off the ground). Does...

    Hi to all I just thought I would make a thread about this, one of my babies every once in a while from The same pair turn out flightless. I am going to attach a picture and you will see what I mean when you see the flights… They look pretty abnormal and some of them split in two and others are...
  7. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi everyone, I live in central Tokyo and feed a few flocks of pigeons near my apartment. In one of the flocks I noticed a pigeon that always seemed separated from the rest of the flock (seeming a little slower and somewhat dazed). I ran into her last week at night and realized something was...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Kunju is a little laughing dove rescued from my cats and then developed PMV symptoms. As a result of this, he can't fly normal to the front like supposed to. Rather up in the air and to the back without any control where he wants to go. I'm keeping him in his own cage about 1 x 1.5 m and the...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I do not know anything about birds, but I found a dove walking around and he did not fly away as I approached. I was worried something is wrong so I brought him in. He is in my back patio in a small enclosure I made for my cats to hang out in sometimes. I cannot afford to take him to the vet...

    I have a feral pigeon with a broken wing that I took into my parrot aviary a couple years ago. He is doing well but I think he'd like pigeon company. He displays for the parrots but they are not interested in anything he does. I'd like to find a hen who is also flightless to keep him company...

    Random introduction story So, as some of you know I'm on vacation in Brasil. I have been allowed to grab string foot injuries and quickly cut and release, but so far I've been leaving all the other sickly pigeons behind. I was scouting for string injuries (for FOUR hours) and bypassed pigeons...

    Okay, here's the situation: I have two birds. One's a rescue feral who thanks to some punk wit a BB gun, can no longer fly. The other is an Old Frill who's perfectly healthy in every way. Given that I got into pigeon keeping suddenly and unexpectedly the "coop" I have for them is adapted from...
  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I suddenly and unexpectedly find myself the owner of a pigeon. I figured I'd post here and ask those more experienced than myself for their knowledge and wisdom. First, let me tell you a story. It's important to bear in mind that my budget is...tight. About two weeks ago, I go out to do a bit...
