His feathers under his wings are just starting to come in and from what I've read, he should be airborne by now. He struggled for a while to learn how to walk. His legs...

It is periodically trying to fly, flutters its wings but is unable to fly high enough to go over the balcony. We gave food and water, but it doesn't seem to be feeding. Another pigeon keeps coming, as...

    So there's this other guy in my neighborhood who flies his birds. Seems like he flies his birds around the same time we let ours out. We already lost about 3 birds and we are suspecting that some of ours went to his loft. Today one of his birds came to ours and we tried letting him fly back to...
