  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hope everyone is doing well! There's a flock I feed in NYC that calls home across the street from a construction site. They roost within a very dirty fenced-in enclosure that's the property of the MTA. I've taken several birds to the local wildlife center. I had one die after five days under...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I have four flocks of feral pigeons I feed on a daily basis. Out of the four, only one flock will drink water from a bowl that I leave behind. I never trained this flock to drink from a bowl, rather, someone had left a nasty container of water but never came back to check on it. Through this...

    So right now I have 3 pigeons. All of them are P.M.V survivors. 2 are grey and are strong. 3rd is white and is not so strong and the coordination skills are pretty bad. I have a home planned out for them and the person has a flock of other pigeons. I am sure the 2 grey ones will be happy and...

    Pigeons like to fly in flocks. My question is.... when they are flying in flocks, is there like a leader that always fly first and lead them places? I haven't let my pigeons fly yet, just curious....

  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'd like to move some pigeons from one place to another. There are already a few pigeons living in the 'to' location. They are a mated pair and a squab with his/her feathers coming in nicely and just starting to peck at the ground sometimes. Is it not good to introduce new pigeons before this...

    I was doing some yard work this after noon. I heard Domino go, wooo, wooo, wooo (not to be confused with waaa-wa wooo for possession). Usually, they do this to let the flock know of something approaching but in a deeper voice. Other male birds began chiming in. Gerodi and Ichabod which usually...

    Errrr....very strange happening!!!!1 I went, very reluctant to let Tripp go, but doing it anyway because it is best for her to stay with her flock, to the Wychwood Barns (where Tripp is from), and scouted the entire area and discovered absolutely none of the flock, I didn't want to let her go...
  9. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I wrote in this forum about the large number of dead pigeons in my street, from the local feral flock. At the time, there was perhaps 5-6. The numbers have nearly doubled over a week and a half. I am quite concerned that these pigeons are being inhumanely culled - i dont think the council is...

    Hi guys, now having my own feral as a pet, i have started noticing the others which forage in the park at the other end of my street. over the last week, i have counted not one, not two, but SIX feral pigeons that appear to have been run over. Two were stacked together on the...
  11. Archive - Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hey everyone, This is my flock a few weeks ago on a warm day (rare!) having a bath. I refilled their water and they piled into the dish, so I gave them a basin as well. Most of them are ferals that couldn't be released. A few are homers that were found and taken to the Humane Society...they...
  12. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I rescued Paloma when she was 7 days old and "released" her last summer. She's resided happily on my balcony since. I posted awhile ago when I was worried because I had attracted a flock to my balcony by feeding Paloma. (I didn't mind the flock, but I'm in an apartment complex where they...

    Here is what we know.....of 35 or so young Kings that were collected in San Francisco several passed pretty quickly with no diagnosis. Elizabeth took a bunch more. She has lost one I think from unknown causes...(I will ask her to fill in any gaps in info here so we get the best advice possible.)...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello everyone, My 1st posting here so please go easy if I come across as uneducated about Pigeons. Where to start, well roughly five or six years back my garden started to get visited by Pigeons, not wood pigeons but 'rock pigeons' (I think, They are all different colours and patterns)...
